Pastor Bakare Donates Two Church Buildings As Isolation Centers

The general overseer of The Citadel Global Community Church, formerly known as Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has described some of Bishop David Oyedepo’s latest utterances as ‘lamentations.’

In a broadcast shared by the church on Sunday, Bakare called on other churches, with multiple facilities to do the same, rather than criticize the government for shutting down congregational worship.


He said, “I will like to bring some ethical corrections to some of the lamentations of certain people within the church over the ban of congregational worship in churches while markets and hospitals are allowed to operate.

“I am so glad that not only churches are prevented from congregating, the mosques also are locked down.

“The government’s order to open the market for a few days is to prevent hunger, especially in the lives of daily earners because the palliatives by the government cannot go to all citizens in their homes right now.

“Not only that, but those churches with multiple facilities, rather than their leaders criticizing the government should also collaborate with them. They must be prepared to offer some of their halls to the government as isolation centers, in support of the efforts of the government.

“I am not suggesting what we are not prepared to do; we have already done that in our church – we have offered two of our facilities to the Lagos State Government and the private residence we have in Abeokuta, we have offered to the Ogun State Government.

“Let the church leaders in this campaign and support the government, rather than criticizing them for all the arduous tasks they are presently confronted with.”

Bakare prayed for health workers and called on every Christian to make their homes, neighborhood, and workplace as the new pulpits for preaching God’s word.

Recalled that Oyedepo, of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, recently criticized the decision of the government to open markets and leave places of worship closed; as one in a raft of precautionary measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease in Africa’s most populous nation.

“For people to be allowed to be in the market for six hours and can’t be in church for two hours, it’s an upside-down way of looking at things. Which one is more orderly? The market or the church?

“I can smell a rat. The Lord spoke to me so strongly yesterday. I can smell a rat. This is about how do we stop the church from exploding? People that are involved don’t know it o,” Oyedepo blared.
