2015-02-02 21:25
Lagos - Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly has lambasted the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) for endorsing President Goodluck Jonathan for the February 14 presidential election, reports NewsDay.

He is angry with them for supporting Jonathan at the expense of one of their own, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, the running mate to the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.

Bakare, who is also the Convener of the Save Nigeria Group, in a sermon on Sunday, said he was disappointed that the Christian leaders have decided to support Jonathan at the expense of Osinbanjo.
