Serving overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare has expressed that there is “gross failure” in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He stated this while speaking during an interview on Channels Television, on Tuesday.
The former vice-presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) said this is not the Nigeria he had envisioned.
He expressed that the country is at the precipice and that many things currently happening in the country have not been seen before, adding that Nigeria has a way of bouncing back.
“This is not the Nigeria we envisioned not only as young people but in recent past. It is as if we are again at the precipice but Nigeria has a way of bouncing back; we are full of hope that God Almighty will help us. We are in a very perplexing situation as a nation. Many things that we didn’t see before are happening now. Even the president himself said so that nothing worries or bothers him like what is happening in the north-east, especially the banditry and kidnapping,” he said.
When queried if he is surprised by the state of the nation considering the role he played in the emergence of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to power, Bakare stated that he is “terribly shocked”, adding that Nigerians, including himself, were hopeful about the change promised by the APC.
“Surprise will be a good thing for me. I’m not surprised. I’m terribly shocked about the things that are happening. I never envisaged them,” he said.We are social! follow us on:
