Renowned cleric, Pastor Tunde Bakare has blatantly stated that neither of the leading opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) nor the ruling party All Progressives Congress (APC) could rescue Nigeria from its long-time woes and calamities.

Disclosing this while ministering in a programme titled ‘Pathway to National Rebirth and Transformation’ broadcast by Channels TV on Sunday, the fiery cleric explained that “APC is screwed up. PDP is screwed up. Neither can rescue Nigeria. Before they ask you to go and vote, they already know who to give the power to behind the back door. You can quote me on the high mountain.”

He said further that “as long as Nigerians continue to vote for thugs, hyenas, jackals, they will continue to devour the land.”

Commenting on the anti-corruption crusade of the current administration, Bakare asked: “How has the fight against corruption helped us so far? Who has been jailed? Who will be jailed? Whose treasury was even looted? Please let us put up our thinking cap on. Now, they are forming committee to define restructuring. It’s a lie. Don’t they have dictionary? Don’t they have Webster’s Dictionary? Committees are always short in minute but short in hours.”

Speaking further, he described former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan as well as former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and current President Muhammadu Buhari as "colonial masters," recalling that Obasanjo ruled for nine years and electricity did not improve. He asked: “Who asked him where he kept all the monies? Was he held accountable?”

Speaking ironically on Mr Babatunde Fashola, Pastor Bakare quipped: “My brother, with three caps, Minister of Works, Power and Housing, is doing his best but my generating set is still supplying my electricity. Works, we have not seen. Power, we have not seen. Housing, we have not seen.”

He prayed that light will come out of the darkness, which he described as "veil" covering the progress of this nation.
