Pastors opposing FRCN Act are rascals, Bakare


Founder of Latter Rain Assembly and convener of Save Nigeria Group (SNG), Pastor Tunde Bakare, has described church founders, who are against the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria Act 2011 as “Pentecostal charismatic rascals”.


Bakare aired his view on the controversial FRCN act that forced Pastor Enoch Adeboye to somehow stand down as General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Nigeria during his church service on Sunday.

A trained lawyer, Bakare said he has read the FRCN Act and has only words of praise for it.

“I am a trained lawyer, I have read the law. The law specifically mentioned Chief Imams and pastors, that they can have lifelong terms. But it says you cannot be chief priest, chief treasurer, and chief administrator…You don’t want to comply with the law, then why did you register under the law? It is a spirit of lawlessness and the anti-Christ because the anti-Christ is a lawless spirit,” he said.

Bakare added “I can testify that the law was explained to kingpins in the church, but now you want to get away because you want to cover your iniquity. You won’t get away with it.

“You want to get away because you have laundered money, and you are now trying to cover your yansh.”
