Ex Presidential aide, Reno Omokri has come out to say that clergyman, Tunde Bakare is a well-known manipulator. He recently had his say after the clergyman failed to secure a single vote at the just concluded APC Presidential primary.
Recall that Bakare, while preaching in his church several months back, prophesied that he will be the next President after President Buhari leaves office in 2023, well, that didn’t happen.
Reacting, Reno simply wrote that some of our pastors manipulate the belief of their members in them with their false prophesies.
His words, “To all those who allow their pastors tell them who God says they should marry or not marry: Can you see how what Pastor Tunde Bakare claimed God told him panned out? Some of these pastors manipulate your belief in them. Believe in God not your pastors!”
“Tunde Bakare is a well known manipulator. He has lied in God’s Name not once or thrice. Please research these by yourself: In 1999, he claimed God told him Obasanjo would die and not be sworn in. In 2006, he claimed Buhari was part of Nigeria’s decaying past. In 2018, he said God told him he would be our 16th President!”
“Why am I calling him out? Because if we do not, he will explain this away and fool people with more lies in future.”
“Pentecostal and evangelical pastors are some of the most unsupervised people. In denominations, like the Catholic Church, they have a structure that helps a priest separate his delusions from the word of God. But with these churches, there are no such demarcations!”
Bemigho Reno Omokri (born 1974) is an author and lawyer. Omokri was the host of Transformation with Reno Omokri, a Christian teaching TV show broadcast (for one season) on San Francisco’s KTLN and Detroit’s Impact Network. He is the founder of a multimedia project, Build Up Nigeria, and has produced a series of short films in the U.S.
He is the pastor of the Mind of Christ Christian Center in California and Abuja. He is also known for using social media to project the Gospel. Omokri continues to write articles for major newspapers (mainly political OpEd and Christian material).
On August 17, 2017, the Department of State Security attempted to arrest him at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja but failed. Three days after the failed arrest attempt, the ruling party in Nigeria, the All Progressive Congress, named Omokri, along with former President Goodluck Jonathan and Governors Nyesom Wike and Willie Obiano as some of those showing “hatred, narrow-mindedness and meanness” to President Muhammadu Buhari.
He was one of three spokesmen to the former President, and is credited with pioneering the use of social media for political purposes in Nigeria.
