Tunde Bakare, Senior Pastor of Citadel Global Community Church, has revealed that his support for President Muhammadu Buhari was based on divine revelation.

According to Bakare, God told him that Buhari had a role in stabilising Nigeria.

The pastor, who is also a seasoned politician, made this statement in a broadcast on Sunday.Bakare had been an ardent critic of the nation’s past leaders and is also quoted to have once said that he is under no obligation to protest against the sitting President.

While retelling his role in the coalition of political parties which led to the creation of the All Progressive Congress and the eventual emergence of  Buhari in 2015, Bakare said God had in a vision showed him that Buhari had a critical role in the stabilisation of Nigeria.

He said, “After the controversial and divisive 2011 elections, as Nigeria drifted along sectional undercurrents and the nation sought a unifying force, some of us prevailed on Muhammadu Buhari not to quit the stage but to take back his words and form a coalition of the best of the North and the best of the South to salvage our nation.

“I must admit that I played a critical role in that mission. God had shown me in a vision that GMB still had a role to play in stabilising Nigeria.”Since Buhari assumed power in 2015, however, the country appears to have been further divided than before.
