The Serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, Tunde Bakare, has alleged that President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu lacks integrity.
Bakare spoke at a webinar titled: “Building the New Nigeria: The Role of the Diaspora”, organized by the PTB4Nigeria In Diaspora Group.
The cleric said the last general elections were marred by widespread irregularities, noting that he would never call Tinubu his president.
Daily Trust reports that President Muhammadu Buhari, who will exit power on Monday upon the completion of his second term in office, is expected to hand over to Tinubu.
Bakare also recalled what he told President Buhari last week.
“Last Wednesday, I was at the Glass House in Abuja where Buhari has been restricted now because the main house is being renovated. I said I have done that for you. I want you to know that, because of the circumstances of your flying into power on the wings of integrity and incorruptibility, but you’re now passing on someone who does not have that value.
“Let’s make this clear, at any point or anywhere, before this mess is cleared off, I will address Asiwaju (Tinubu) as a President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria but I will never call him my president,” he said.
The cleric was one of the 16 aspirants that vied for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential ticket in June last year.
He got zero vote in the primary election held at Eagle Square, Abuja.
