President Goodluck Jonathan’s government will not live out its term in 2015, fiery cleric and politician, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has predicted.
Preaching in his church, the Latter Rain Assembly, Lagos, yesterday, Pastor Bakare exuded confidence as he declared that Nigeria would hold another general elections before 2015.
Bakare, who did not disclose if God spoke to him on the subject matter, explored the theme “How to change government peacefully and make society better.” He said Jonathan “should choose between the options to resign, be impeached or worst still face people’s revolt.”
According to Bakare, “The bewildering exposure of the level of corruption in almost every arm of government as well as governmental agencies and parastatals, calls for a change of guards - more so when the president has openly admitted that the security situation in the country has changed his pre-election agenda. And in spite of the president’s promises to deal with insecurity head-on, this government appears helpless because it cannot see the linkage between corruption and violence.”
Bakare, who is the Serving Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, was the vice presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in last year’s general elections. He is also the Convener of the Save Nigeria Group (SNG) which organised the “Occupy Nigeria” fuel protests that crippled much of the country last January.
