The Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele lashed out at Pastor Tunde Bakare over the latter’s comment on running for president in 2023.
Bakare, who paid a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, said he will contest for the position if God and Nigerians asked him to, saying he is a ‘nation builder.’
Reacting, Primate Ayodele stated that Pastor Bakare should face his missionary work and stop mismanaging the grace of God upon his life.
Ayodele noted that Bakare cannot win an election in his church not to talk of winning an election in Nigeria.
In a statement by his media aide, Oluwatosin Osho, the clergyman advised him to spend his money on the less privileged in his church rather than waste it on something that has no reward from God.
“Tunde Bakare is mismanaging the grace of God upon his life and ministry. The dream of becoming Nigeria’s president is not realistic for him; he can’t even win an election in his church not to talk of Nigeria.
“If he has money, he should use it to help the less privileged in his church instead of going about to waste his time for nothing.
“Tunde Bakare should relax, forget the dream of becoming Nigeria’s president and face his missionary work that God sent him to do. He should preach the gospel, win more souls for Christ.,” he said.
