The General Overseer of Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare has described the main contender of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) of the All Progressive Congress, as a man of integrity who he has a high level of respect for.
“Buhari’s integrity is one factor that appears to be the winning mark for APC. This is one attribute that even the PDP has not been able to fault.”
“Buhari is a man of integrity and I have no doubt about what he can do and achieve, but his environment, I doubt,” he said.
Another factor working for Buhari is the fact that those who contested the party’s presidential ticket with him have remained good sportsmen and have remained in the party in line with the undertaking signed before the primary that that they would remain in the party whether they lose or win.
Pastor Bakare was the running mate of Buhari on the platform of the Congress for Progressive Change in the 2011 presidential election.
Meanwhile, he had on several occasions criticized CAN, PFN and others for endorsing President Goodluck Jonathan for the presidential election at the expense of one of their own, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, the running mate to the APC, presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.
