Senior Pastor of the Citadel Global Community Church, formerly known as the Latter Rain Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare has lamented over the rising cost of living witnessed across the country.
Bakare who stated that removal of fuel subsidy has had a negative effect on Nigerians, asked President Tinubu not to kill Nigerians but tackle the harsh economic reality facing the country.
“Mr President, kill corruption, and not Nigerians. No economy can thrive on impunity”
Bakare also kicked against the proposed military intervention in Niger Republic by ECOWAS. He said;
“Local support for Nigeria by Nigeriens is at an all-time low. It is, therefore, counter-productive to engage in a warfare. While we condemn coup d’etat in West Africa, we recognize that the situation calls for deep, introspection on the part of African leaders.
“We call upon Nigeria at this time to provide good leadership. The real question is whether President Tinubu has capacity to provide the moral leadership even in the domestic context.
“We must share what the Lord has said to us and what he has shown to us. Today’s state of the nation broadcast is a by product of what we have seen and what we have heard.
“You’re going to see God’s move in our nation after this state of the nation broadcast. Today will mark the time, day and season that God intervened in Nigeria’s affairs.”
