The General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare has said that he trusts the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari but not his environment.

Bakare stated this on Tuesday, March 17, while addressing Christians at the annual Lenten lecture of the Island Club in Lagos.

“Yes I trust Buhari and this is because I have worked closely with him but I doubt his environment. The Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress, which one is really clean? Only God can give us true leaders,” Bakare said.

“If General Buhari wins, let President Goodluck Jonathan accept defeat. Whoever loses is not a loser and if the winner is President Goodluck Jonathan, Buhari should accept this as the will of God,” he added.

“The 2015 election is a serious crossroad and we might be playing with fire but with wisdom and prayer, we shall end well. I am not a politician; I am not a PDP nor APC member. I am a nation-builder. Whoever I support is not the issue, God’s will must prevail. My loyalty is first to God and to my country but God knows Nigeria’s next president,” the preacher said.

Bakare was Buhari’s running mate on the platform of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) for the 2011 presidential elections.
