2023: FFK attacks Pastor Tunde Bakare over Tinubu


Fani-Kayode said it was Tinubu who forced Buhari on the nation and the people of the Southwest in 2015, saying he should share in the blame of the downturn of the Buhari administration.

Controversial Critic Femi Fani-Kayode has attacked Pastor Tunde Bakare over his romance with the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

He said Bakare has desecrated the pulpit by praising Tinubu to the highest heaven, saying “shame on him.”


Bakare had attacked rancorous Yoruba elders who are bent on destroying Tinubu ahead of the 2023 presidency, saying they were envious of his achievement.

The fiery preacher said “I have a word for those Yoruba rancorous elements, noisemakers who have not achieved as much as Asiwaju Tinubu has achieved, but are always querying and worrying themselves about his ancestry.


“Those who are envious of Mr. Tinubu and those who desire to take his power slot should stop their useless talk about him, and busy themselves with what can add value to society”.

Reacting, Fani-Kayode wondered how Bakare who once said Tinubu would give account for all his deeds, would suddenly turn around to praise the same man he once denigrated.

According to him, “I listened to Bakare’s words, spoken from the sanctity of his pulpit, three times and I was astounded. I asked myself what could have possibly made him flip in such an unceremonious, undignified and inglorious manner?


“I regarded his new-found and newly-cultivated grovelling and sycophantic assertions about Tinubu as being not only self-serving, arrogant, pitiful and condescending but also a desecration of the pulpit”.

“I asked myself over and over again whether this was the same man saying one thing at the end of 2019 and saying the opposite at the end of 2020?”

He said for Bakare to support Tinubu, it meant a lot and warned him not to drag the Yoruba people into his new found love.

“However on this Tinubu matter he has not done justice to himself and he has indulged in an inexcusable faux pas!


I am constrained to ask, why this sudden u-turn on Jagaban? Is there something he knows today that he did not know one year ago? If so can he possibly share it with us so that we can possibly consider doing a volte face too? Or is that they have something on him?” He asked.

“The ‘sakabular’ pastor is encouraging the young ones to loot, steal, engage in fraudulent acts, sell drugs, do passport racketeering in their youth as these will not count against them in the future. Rubbish from the pulpit. Shame on him,” he added.



‘Sick’ Femi Fani-Kayode blast Amaechi

Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has reacted to the allegation made by Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation that he stole two billion during his time as minister.

Earlier, Rotimi Amaechi had alleged during an interview on Channels Television some time ago and the video of the interview resurfaced online during the weekend. Fani-Kayode however retorted, calling Amaechi ‘sick’ for accusing him of embezzling the said amount during his time as a Minister.

Amaechi claimed that Fani-Kayode ran away with N2 billion given to him by the then Rivers State government to fix a deplorable Port Harcourt Airport runway. He had said: “Fani-Kayode when he was Minister of Aviation, Dr. Peter Odili’s government gave him N2 billion to fix the runway. The runway was closed for two years and Fani-Kayode left with the money”.

However, Fani-Kayode on Sunday night, while sharing the video on his Twitter page insisted that the airport was re-built and fully paid for by him as Minister.

The former Minister charged those in doubt of his defence to ask Julius Berger construction company for details of the contract.

He maintained that the allegation by the current Minister of Transportation was false, adding that the runway was commissioned shortly after he left office and was opened to public use.

“The runway at Port Harcourt Int. Airport was re-built & fully paid for by me when I was Min. of Aviation.

“If anyone has any doubts about that they should ask Julius Berger who were the contractors. The runway was commissioned & the airport opened shortly after we left office.

“Those who falsely asserted on @channelstv two years ago that I did not build the runway and that I ran away with the 3 billion naira that was used to build it are sick,” he tweeted.
