Nigeria Needs Cleansing–Pastor Tunde Bakare

Latter Rain Assembly Pastor, Tunde Bakare, has said that Nigeria needs total cleansing to grow and progress, predicting that “those who put the country in its present mess will not escape when God arrives to do the cleansing.” Addressing a press conference yesterday in Lagos at the Church auditorium, the preacher insisted that “we need the Ghana treatment to send shock wave down the spines of everybody so that people would tip-toe when going into public office,” enthusing that it remained “how God will do it.”

The maverick cleric, whose address’s theme was, “The Head that Refuses a Life-giving Rebuke Will be Thrown Down the Cliff of Perdition,” regretted that “this government has lost it long before now,” insisting that “until good governance is in place and credible people are not discouraged from playing clean politics, things would not change.”
Speaking on the recent allegation of squandering of foreign reserves running into several billions of dollars levelled against the Federal Government by the former minister of education, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili at a lecture, Bakare berated the government’s spokesmen and the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), for “chasing the shadow and leaving the substance.”
He pointed out that rather than addressing the grievous corrupt act, the CAN leadership, which Bakare said was expected to serve as the voice for the voiceless started to act as government appendage, regretting further that “it was the re-tweeting of figurative expression of Mallam Nasir el-Rufai that the agents of diversion have latched onto to take our focus from the fundamental issues Oby raised and to which they have no answer.”
His words: “But rather than giving a lucid, reasoned and mature response to Mrs. Ezekwesili, the Federal Government, through its spokespersons, went into all manner of tirades against her person, virulently attacking the messenger while ignoring the message. “This puerile approach must have incensed many Nigerians with sense of decency and propriety in public affairs.”
“One young Nigerian with such righteous indignation went on tweeter to comment, among other things, that if Christ in all his holiness were to criticise the present administration, it would, out of its intolerance, accuse the messiah of having slept with Mary Magdalene. “It was the re-tweeting of this figurative expression by Mallam Nasir el-Rufai that the agents latched onto in order to take our focus from the fundamental isuues Oby raised and to which they have no answer.”
Bakare lamented further that, “it is rather unfortunate that the CAN that should bring understanding to simple matters like these has confirmed the description by the Catholic Church as an arm of the government in power by fanning the propaganda of agents of the administration that el-Rufai is a bigot for a statement that did not originate from him and whose meaning should be clear to a non-mischievous person.” He, therefore, described el-Rufai as “a detribalised and religiously neutral person,” insisting that “he is not a religious bigot.”
