Despite his poor showing at the just concluded primaries of the All Progress Congress, Pastor Tunde Bakare has said his joy was that he did not compromise his principles and beliefs.
Pastor Bakare did not get a single vote at the APC presidential primaries held in Abuja on Tuesday, June 7.
This has generated several comments on social media. Many praised his courage. Some said they will always have regard for him though nobody voted for him.
But some wondered how he arrived at the conviction that he would be the next president after President Mohammadu Buhari. They believe he never really heard from God as he claimed.
Bakare who is the lead pastor of Citadel Community Global Church is however indifferent.
In a social media post on Wednesday, June 8, he wrote, “I am happy I passed the test of character by not paying any delegate. I passed the test of courage by speaking the truth in the midst of wolves and the test of conviction by standing true to my beliefs. Those who will make a difference must be different.”
