Bakare made this revelation while speaking during his sermon at the Latter Rain Assembly on Sunday.

The pastor who condemned the leakage of the 28-page memo denied suggestion that it was meant to disparage President Buhari and curry favour towards his(el-Rufai) rumoured 2019 presidential ambition.

Speaking on his role in the controversial memo, “I can never deny that I knew about the memo; I knew about it. I flew from Lagos to meet El-Rufai in Abuja to discuss the contents with President Buhari. There were just three of us at the meeting.

“The memo was an assessment of what was going on; where mistakes had been made and things were not going on well; and what could be done to move the country forward.

“It was not an attack on anybody or on the President but some sons of disobedience around President Buhari leaked the memo to Sahara Reporters to make it look as if it was meant to attack the President for their own selfish interests.

“Can you imagine that the memo was written in September last year and some people think that they could gain from that? Woe betides anyone who thinks he can further his interest by manipulating anything in this era.”
