Northern Bishops Who Met Tinubu, Not Under PFN — Bakare

2 months ago4105 views

Barely a day after the visit to Asiwaju Bola AhmedTinubu, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), has disowned the "Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria," which met with the Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), on Friday in Abuja. "The PFN was not a part of the meeting with the presidential candidate that was highly politicized. We are, however, aware of this matter's ripples in the public domain. I am speaking officially to clarify that the PFN has nothing to do with that," the Deputy National Secretary of the PFN, Bishop David Bakare, has said. In an interview, Bakare said such a group does not exist within the PFN. " The forum is not known to the PFN. There is nothing in PFN that is regionally based like Southern or Northern Pentecostal Bishops," he said. "The PFN is an arm of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), and the position of the fellowship on the same faith presidential ticket of the APC has not changed. The meeting between Tinubu and the Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria has nothing to do with the PFN." "I am speaking to you officially and authoritatively that the ranks of the Christian community and course, the PFN I represent, are not broken at all. The Pentecostal Bishops Forum of Northern Nigeria is not known to the PFN. The forum does not have any affiliation or relationship with the PFN registered with this nation's government, " he said. " The position of the PFN on same faith ticket still stands as it was in the beginning, and we have not, for any reason, shifted our post on that matter…The PFN was not a part of the meeting with the presidential candidate that was highly politicized. We are, however, aware of this matter's ripples in the public domain. I am speaking officially to clarify that the PFN has nothing to do with that organization." "We didn't take such a decision. We have not met that political party, and whatever we will do would be in the public domain. That group is on its own and has nothing to do with the real incorporated PFN. I looked at the photos and the names. I could recognize about two people who are our members, but they speak for themselves." "All Pentecostal leaders in Nigeria, from the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Living Faith, Mountain of Fire House on the Rock, among others, speak with one voice ." "Finally, I wish to let you know that there is nothing in PFN that is regionally based like Southern or Northern Pentecostal Bishops. The PFN does not have any settings for Bishops. What we have is PFN. We do not separate Bishops of Pentecostal from other clergies of Pentecostal. " "PFN is just one body under which all Bishops, Pastors, and members are lined up behind Bishop Francis Wale, the President. We stand by our decision. We have not and will not bend to the dictate of any political group." "It doesn't matter what politicians will want to do. The truth and the joy are that the PFN is not divided on its position. Individuals can form an association, but when it comes to the body called PFN, there is no change in our position, and we have not authorized anybody to hold a meeting…."

Bakare is still pained and yet to recover from the primary election in which he had zero votes... Jesus never instructed any believer to form an association because he never created one. Thank God he said he could recognize some of their faces and names... Meaning they are not fake Bishops this time around.


A pastor turned politician claimed God told him he would be the next president, still faulting others while leaving his error prophecy out of the discussion.

'Tunde Bakare BELONGS IN THE VERY RUSTY GUARD WHO STILL LIVES IN THE PAST.


Bakare is one of the deceptive elements of the past with a retrogressive mentality that still plays the RELIGION card of DISCORD to continue to suppress the souls of Nigerians who cannot and do not control their own.


"I looked at the photos and the names. I could recognize about two people who are our members, but they speak for themselves."".


HE RECOGNIZED TWO AMONGST THE GROUP. MEANING THE VISIT HAS AN ELEMENT OF THE PFN AND Bakare IS IN NO POSITION TO DECIDE WHO THE MEMBER OF THE BODY MUST BE AND WHAT THEY MUST DO WITH THEIR OPINIONS AND CHOICES.


'Tunde Bakare DOES NOT SPEAK FOR ANYBODY BUT HIMSELF, NOT EVEN THE PFN.


Enough of the FAKE and UNCIVILIZED rogue heads who would rather persist in DIVIDING the country.

You didn't read the press release. PFN Deputy National Secretary Bishop David Bakare commented. Not Pastor Tunde Bakare. Stop hating.

Tinubu's permutations have opened his eyes that without Christian votes and Atiku winning the North, it would be good as bye-bye to Tinubu's Presidential ambition.


Tinubu thought he was MKO Abiola, who rode on a Muslim Muslim ticket in 1993. Still, even down in the North today, the Northerners are not energized or amused by Tinubu/Shettimma Muslim Muslim ticket, which jeopardizes Tinubu's ambition.


Tinubu also thought he would inherit Buhari block votes in the North. Still, the reality in the North shows Buhari support groups being financed since 2015 by Buhari's Nephew Mamman Daura, head of the Aso Rock Cabal, are instead collapsing their structures into the Atiku support groups in the North.


Tinubu will have to search and beg for votes in the Predominantly Christian and Pro PDP and anti-APC regions of the South-South and southeast to add up to his voices from the South West, which is why he is lobbying the Wike-led faction for support and votes in the south South and South East.


Unfortunately for Tinubu, the five other south South Governors are in Atiku's camp, they all worked against Wike at the PDP Presidential Primary (Okowa of Delta State, Obaseki of Edo state, Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State, Diri of Bayelsa state and Ex-Governor Liyel Imoke who controls Cross River PDP)

What did we have during the oritsejeafor conducted PFN on Goodluck Jonathan's presidency? Oh, I forgot his plane was detected someplace in an African country with bundles of dollars piled in.


Oh yeah, the celebrated Abuja bombing and barracks also. Right? Another Abduction of chibok girls. I thought Jonathan was a Christian andSambo was a Muslim. Yet, PFN was entirely in support of the govt.


Anyone who thinks PFN is fighting for the citizens doesn't know Nigeria. They are after their welfare and purses. Now, they are sensing that their hands will be washed off the plate since Tinubu will unquestionably win.


Since PFN is still crying wolves, we don't want them anymore. We want Christians but not PFN.

Shikenna!

We knew it. Fake everything fake. The evil antecedent bat is on a mission with his satanic Mu-Mu ticket to cause breakup & disorder in Christendom.


I have never seen someone so counterfeit in this life like thiefnubu.


Agbadorians are like: which kind wahala be this na, how we want to start now to fend this thief.


The most challenging work on earth is supporting this man. When you think that you are done defending him, before you close your eyes and open them, he has perpetrated another one.


Now foolish agbadorians are thinking about how they will defend him directly with their pale brain. If you idiot know what's suitable for you people, don't try to, because the more you protect the idiot, the more you lose your mind and the more stupid you sound and become.


God forbid bat thing.

I imagine any Christian northerner will sit down with Thiefnubu on a Muslim-Muslim ticket. Even a Bishop from the north.


Suppose Thiefnubu has selected a Christain candidate; things could be acceptable. But Thiefnubu is sending the message to the entire Christain community: they are inconsequential.


Peter Obi could have also picked a Christain man from the north as his vice. But to balance up things, he needed to pick a core Muslim from the north. Thiefnubu sent a solid message to the Christian community to stay clear of his government when he finally emerged as the president.


Tinubu is a thief. In countries like china, he ought to have been tried and sentenced to death by hanging. Nigerians have already rejected him. His selfish ambition to rule Nigeria is dead on arrival. Ole

Can Tinubu live for a single day without committing fraud? Here's a man who eats and respires fraud all through his life. We are still astounded about how he rented fake bishops during the unveiling of his Boko Haram vice, and to think he would mellow down and do the right thing, he still went ahead to rent other fake bishops that are not registered with CAN. Coupled with his pasts as a drug noble and a sick man, Tinubu is unsuitable to be president of Nigeria.
