Tunde Bakare Meets With President Buhari Behind Closed Doors
October 15, 2021
President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday received in audience the founder of the Citadel Global Community Church (formerly Latter Rain Assembly), Pastor Tunde Bakare, behind closed doors at the statehouse, Abuja.
While details of the meeting remain unclear, it may not be unconnected to the pastor’s recent calls for more unity in the country.
Last Sunday, the serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church (CGCC), had urged President Muhammadu Buhari to do away with the 1999 constitution, saying it is a great inhibitor of the nation’s progress.
He made the call during a state of the nation address which he titled: ‘The black box of Nigeria’s politics’.
“In the same spirit, I say to President Muhammadu Buhari: Mr President, stop passing the buck to the National Assembly. Tear down this inhibiting concoction of a constitution; tear it down so we can build a truly great nation”.
He was a running mate of the Buhari under the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in 2011.
