Tunde Bakare and Femi Fani-Kayode have brought their war over perceptions on All Progressives Congress, APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to an end.
The truce was brought about following the intervention of some mutual acquittances, notably Ovation publisher, Dele Momodu and the spokesman for the Yoruba Summit Group, Mogaji Gboyega Adejumo.
The war was started after Bakare, the leader of the Citadel Global Community Church in Lagos, had in a sermon penultimate Sunday blasted Tinubu’s critics for playing down the achievements of the former Lagos State governor.
“I have a word for those Yoruba rancorous elements, noisemakers that 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.”
Fani-Kayode had responded in a piece where he alleged that Bakare was being blackmailed, observing that the pastor had an unsettled issue with a bank arising from a 1990 transaction.
‘Who is Squeezing Bakare’s Balls?’, Fani-Kayode had written.
Bakare had immediately replied through Yinka Odumakin before the latest intervention and truce.
Fani-Kayode went on twitter on Wednesday to say that they were now on the same page. He, however, did not say if Bakare’s balls were being squeezed or not.
He said: “I just concluded a three-way conversation with Pastor Tunde Bakare and Mogaji Gboyega Adejumo, spokesman of the Yoruba Summit Group.
“We clarified all issues and put the matter behind us. My respect for Pastor Bakare remains high. I thank Mogaji and Chief Dele Momodu for their intervention.”
