- Nigerians are actually groaning under the weight of economic hardship at the moment
- One of those who voiced his displeasure on Thursday, October 1, is Pastor Tunde Bakare
- Bakare called on the Nigerian government to save the lives of citizens but kill the common enemy, corruption
The senior pastor of the Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare, has called on the federal government to save the lives of Nigerians but kill corruption in the country.
During a programme, The Platform, Pastor Bakare, called on the Buhari-led administration to direct its vehemence to the cankerworm, graft.
The outspoken and famous Christian cleric said:
“Don’t kill Nigerians, kill corruption because we knew that the subsidy being paid is going into private pockets.”
Bakare noted that he joined the Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka and human rights activist, Femi Falana, in 2012 to protest the hike in the price of petrol.
The pastor noted that the march at the time was not against subsidy, which he described as a tool to enrich the wealthy and further oppress the poor.
Meanwhile, Bakare has a vision to become the next president after Muhammadu Buhari. In a recent interview, the man of God maintained that he would be the 16th president.
According to him, he had never had the ambition to become president, but a vision, which he says were two different things.
"A companion of ambition is anxiety, while a companion of vision is peace. If that is my destiny, you will see it happen," he explained.
On media reports about him saying he will be the next president after Buhari, Bakare responded:
"Yes, I said so in the Church.
"I am a free citizen, my desire can be expressed and anyone who is angry about that can express their own. I said he is number 15 and I will be number 16."
