    Pastor Tunde Bakare Calls Out Buhari’s Administration, What He Said Will Shock You

    Tunde Bakare

    Pastor Tunde Bakare, the General Overseer of Citadel Global Community Church (formerly known as The Latter Rain Assembly) in Lagos, dared an official of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to come after him if the government was offended by his recent pronouncements, which he said had become unsettling to some people, on Sunday.

    Tunde Bakare, who was President Muhammadu Buhari’s running mate in 2011 when the President ran on the platform of the erstwhile Congress for Progressive Change, said this during a sermon at his church in Ikeja, Lagos.

    The priest also denounced the federal government’s recent crackdown on IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu and Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo (a.k.a. Sunday Igboho), claiming that the search for justice has been substituted by intimidation and cruelty.

    “I dare you to come after me since that is the usual style now. You might have done it to others; you are about to learn a lesson if you touch me,” said the cleric, who did not name the government official. If you know what I have done in secret, bring it to the open. I dare you to come after me if you can. I worked with you; I worked for you; I supported you to get there (where you are). When I talk now, I now have a smelly mouth. I am not interested in meeting you any longer; no more visits. Now, it is war, because Nigeria must be set free,” Bakare said.

    The cleric, who reminisced about how he helped the senior official obtain his current post in President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, said the person might turn on him if he so desired.

    He questioned the official if he had forgotten what had happened between them when the two of them were alone in a room after the official had pledged never to run for the position he had lost three times.

    “Have you forgotten that you vowed never to contest again? I said ‘not so’. I showed you how you can win the next election and you agreed to run and you won. I was not considering myself but concerned about how Nigeria can become great.

    “Winning an election is a different thing; doing the right thing is another. No one must behave as if Nigeria is personal property. Nigeria must be set free and any obstruction along the way must be removed; it must get out of the way.

    “I declare to you ‘Nigeria-for-Nigeria Movement’. I’m prepared to lead this movement. Nigeria is not a one-man property. This movement will liberate Nigeria,” he said.

    Bakare also decried the energy being expended on clamping down on sectional agitators in the country, noting that although he did not support anyone or groups taking up arms against the state.

    “I don’t support any act of violence, taking up arms against the country and killing people. Those are in the realm of criminality and anybody doing that must be brought to book. However, we must realise that what has given rise to the agitation is a lack of justice and equity. When there is justice, when there is equity, agitation will die down. How can you be expending so much energy on Igboho and Kanu? Igboho and Kanu are not Nigeria’s problems. Nigeria must restructure and no one can stop that,” he declared.

      Tunde Bakare should go and sit down. He was one of those people that brought this calamity on Nigerians.

      Bakare should increase the volume so that the officials in Buhari’s administration will hear.
