A leader par excellence 
Pastor Babatunde Gbolahan Bakare was a formidable voice during the #EndSARS protest. His opinion on public issues is often a thread for discussion. He is notable for his frequent statements on the state of the nation. 

It will be recalled that the renowned cleric was a formidable voice during the 2012 subsidy protests. More so, he has condemned many policies of the government. 

He does not believe in staying silent on issues that affect the people. He has always spoken up against the oppression of the masses. 

He has a dream of becoming the president of the country some day. However, he has stated that his desire is not a do-or-die affair.
