Bakare Has Affirmed Fringy Whispers About Tinubu Origin – Farooq Kperogi by shehuolayinka(m): 1:18pm On Dec 26, 2020
United States of America based Nigerian academic, media scholar at Kennesaw State University, Georgia, Professor Farooq Kperogi says Latter Rain Pastor, Tunde Bakare has basically affirmed all the hitherto fringy whispers about Bola Tinubu’s origin, former Lagos State governor and a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress, (APC).

Kperogi in this week “Notes from Atlanta” article, titled Bakare Didn’t Defend Tinubu; He Defanged Him, touched on Bakare’s sermon and controversy surrounding the origin of the 2023 Presidential hopeful.

He said, “In Bakare’s political homily, he basically affirmed all the hitherto fringy whispers about Tinubu: that he is from Iragbiji in Osun State; that his current name is not his original name; that he has disowned his biological parents and “adopted” the Tinubu family of Lagos with whom he has zero consanguineal affiliation; that the late legendary Alhaja Abibat Mojaji of Lagos is not Tinubu’s biological mother; that he has an odious “past”; that he is corruptly “making money from taxation” by “exploiting the system to his advantage”; and that he is “transparently corrupt.”

He further said, Tinubu would rather want Nigerians to be discussing about him as he stealthily campaigns to be Nigeria’s next president and works to fend off ferocious, multifarious challenges to his grip on Lagos and Southwest politics.

“He would much rather that people think of him as a Lagosian who is a scion of the famous Tinubu family, who has always been known as Bola Ahmed, and whose biological mother was the late Alhaja Abibat Mogaji.”

Bakare had in a trending video few days ago, while preaching at the Lagos citadel church, in a sermon tagged ‘An Idle Man’s Brain Is The Devil’s Workshop, reported by The Cable Newspaper praised and described Tinubu as Jephthah in the bible, stating that despite the circumstances of his birth, he rose to power and delivered Lagos and almost all the Southwest states from the “onslaught of PDP.”

Waoooh Tinubu influence in Nigeria is enormous and unquantifiable, he is the strongest and the most influencial African politician dead or alive, despite not holding any political post, people can't stop mentioning him, he is just too important to be ignore, those that were governors, senators and representatives during his time has failed into oblivion but jagaban have created an indelible mark that can never be erased or surpass by anyone, GOD of Tinubu where are you, just give me half of Tinubu's fame, I don't want to be popular like Tinubu, but I want to surpass Azikwe and ojukwu combined

Tinubu's origin is inconsequential.

He can be from Ilorin, Iragbiji or even Sapele.

He is a Nigerian and has the right to aspire to the highest post in his Country.

If he has committed any offence, he should be charged to court and until found guilty, he is presumed innocent.
Prof Kperogis talks too much and sometimes peddle rumours and outright falsehoods.

Pastor Bakare NEVER said what Kperogi was attributing to him.

With the ways you are carrying Tinubu's matter on your head like Brazilian hairs, you are likely to develop hypertension by 2021 and stroke by 2023.

Even the stones and goats know that Tinubu is not from Lagos. A person who denied is real Iragbiji origin is a disgrace to his parents.
