A former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has described the serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church and one of the presidential aspirants of the All Progressives Congress, Pastor Tunde Bakare as a formidable force within the Party, whose moral authority is unassailable.
Fani-Kayode in a series of tweets on Thursday lauded the fiery preacher for his courage to speak truth to those in the authority no matter whose ox is gored.
The former Minister who described Bakare as a the conscience of the APC, says his moral authority is unassailable.
He, however, says he’s proud to be associated with Bakare whose mentorship, “has taught us all that no matter how tough things get we must hold on to God’s promise and never give up”
