Former Vice Presidential candidate and senior pastor of the Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare, says that by all standards, the current government led by President Buhari is not the government Nigerians hoped for when they came into office in 2015.
In a chat with Channels TV, the clergyman who berated the goverment in his state of the nation broadcast held two weeks ago, said this when he spoke on Channels TV.
”No matter how you look at it, thi is not the government we all hoped for. This is not what we thought the government that promised change in the beginning will perform so woefully. Any right thinking Nigerian will agree with that. They could have done better than what they have done so far. They themselves know that”he said
Asked if the Buhari he ran with as a vice presidential candidate in 2011 is the same one he sees ruling now, Bakare said ‘‘I once did a video, ‘The Buhari I know’, and I meant every word I said in that video. I hope I will not be pushed to do a video of the Buhari I didn’t know”.
On whether the Buhari he knows is nepotic, the clergyman said ” I had no reason at the time I ran with him to ever believe he was nepotic. There was no reason because he did say to me he will assembly the best and the brightest from the East, West, North and South of our country to fix the nation. But when I read what Obasanjo wrote, and I saw the list of key appointments made, one would begin to think whether they just put the things on his tabel to sign or is this just what he did deliberately. That is food for thought”.
