TUNDE BAKARE : What God Told Me Buhari Will Do

Pastor Tunde Bakare, the founder of Citadel Global Community Church has revealed why he has continued to support President Buhari.

News Mail Nigeria reports that Tunde Bakare during a State of the Nation Broadcast on Sunday told his congregation that God told him President Muhammadu Buhari has a role in stabilizing Nigeria.

“After the controversial and divisive 2011 elections, as Nigeria drifted along sectional undercurrents and the nation sought a unifying force, some of us prevailed on General Muhammadu Buhari not to quit the stage but to take back his words and form a coalition of the best of the North and the best of the South to salvage our nation,” Mr Bakare said. “I must admit that I played a critical role in that mission. God had shown me in a vision that GMB still had a role to play in stabilising Nigeria.” Tunde Bakare said.

But since Buhari’s enthronement as ruler of Nigeria, the country has become more divided along ethnic lines. There has been unchecked killings of farmers by northern herdsmen around the country. 

President Buhari has also been criticized for appointing more people from the northern part of Nigeria.

On Twitter Pastor Tunde Bakare also put out a series of tweets as his Easter message . Read below :

@T_Bakare
Fellow Nigerians at home and abroad, good morning and a very happy Easter to you all. Our theme for today’s State of the Nation Broadcast is “The Conspicuous Handwriting on the Wall,” inspired by the account in Daniel 5 verses 1-6 and 13-29. #SOTNB21

As you may recall, on January 15, 2011, I was invited by the then General Muhammadu Buhari to run with him on the platform of Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in the 2011 presidential election. #SOTNB21

After initial hesitation, my eventual acceptance was upon the assurance that, amongst other deliverables, our administration would commit to re-engineering Nigeria’s governmental structure with a view to guaranteeing the security & prosperity of our nation & her people. #SOTNB21

After a vigorous campaign, GMB gave a deeply emotional public statement at a press conference on April 13, 2011 – “I am in this solely for the love of my country and concern for its destiny and the fate of its people.” #SOTNB21

At some point while delivering his speech, GMB broke down in tears as he wept for our nation. Deeply moved, several of us who were with him in the hall also wept. GMB then made a solemn statement: “I will not present myself again for election into the office of the president.”

After the controversial and divisive 2011 elections, as Nigeria drifted along sectional undercurrents and the nation sought a unifying force, some of us prevailed on General Muhammadu Buhari not to quit the stage…#SOTNB21

…but to take back his words and form a coalition of the best of the North and the best of the South to salvage our nation. I must admit that I played a critical role in that mission. God had shown me in a vision that GMB still had a role to play in stabilising Nigeria. #SOTNB21

I, therefore, facilitated a meeting in the United Kingdom between him and some of our CPC leaders with a view to forming a coalition between CPC and Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) that could save Nigeria from impending disaster. #SOTNB21

Subsequently, it was my privilege to move the historic motion at Eagle Square, Abuja on February 6, 2013 for the merger of CPC, ACN and ANPP. That step, together with the efforts of other progressive Nigerians, led to the eventual formation of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
 
However, in 2015, as our nation prepared for general elections, the interplay of social, economic, political and military headwinds came crashing on our national foundations and exposed the fault lines in our nationhood…#SOTNB21
 
 
…As the two major political parties, APC and PDP, and their candidates locked horns, our nation was deeply divided along ethnic, partisan, religious and sociocultural lines. #SOTNB21
 
 
Furthermore, oil prices plummeted across the globe, an economic recession loomed, and severe hardships lay in wait for the Nigerian people. #SOTNB21
 
As drum beats of war reverberated across the landscape with threats to national stability coming from various political interest groups, BH terrorists held sway over vast swathes of territory, and 276 girls were abducted and held in captivity. #SOTNB21
 
In the midst of that chaotic climate, the 2015 general election was the preoccupation of the political class. Many stakeholders were convinced that a change of government was what Nigeria needed at that time and the “Change” mantra was chanted across the nation. #SOTNB21

“You must accept your share of responsibility in the quagmire that is today’s Nigeria. You helped bring us this hell, you must accept that. No amount of sweet words will change your odious place in history, Mr. Tunde Bakare. History will be just to you, because we have written it.

I unfollowed him when I read the nonsense he put out regarding Tinubu and how he has worked tirelessly for Nigeria. Morally bankrupt pastors!”

It’s documented…. Even his rejection of cow by the villa (during GEJ), not knowing that he was bedding with the opposition and wholeheartedly working for a man whose disastrous outing in the 80s he saw and witnessed.”
