I Dare Buhari to Come After Me. I Will Teach Him a Lesson, Pastor Bakare Says


The senior pastor of Citadel Global Community Church, Tunde Bakare, has complained vehemently about the administration of President Muhammadu Bubari. He said that he would no longer be visiting the president because his previous visits has not yielded any positive results. The cleric made these statements in his preaching on Sunday which was covered by Sahara Reporters.

It is pertinent to note that the influential pastor once supported Buhari in the past. In fact, he was his former running mate in the presidential elections. However, he said he is now waging war against the present administration because they have failed to listen to the people.

“The country's security architecture even worsened (such) that we cannot sleep with two eyes closed. It's so bad but God is not asleep. Some of my friends do criticise me that I was one of Buhari's supporters and I had to tell them that I openly supported this man in 2011 but I am not saying I'm not seeing him again. 

"He is someone that I visit sometimes and advises him on what to do and he will listen but once I leave, there is nothing to show for it. Later, I started staying back in my house but I have time to pray and plead for mercy,'' Bakare had said previously.

Bakare expressed displeasure about the decision of Buhari to go after people who oppose his government. From Sunday Igboho to Nnamdi Kanu. The cleric equally dared Buhari to come after him if he can. He added that if the president dares to harm him, he will show him a lesson. In his words,

"I’m not interested in meeting you any longer; no more visits. Now, it is war because Nigeria must be set free. I dare you to come after me since that is the usual style now. You might have done it to others. You are about to learn a lesson if you touch me.

“If you know what I have done in secret, bring it to the open. I dare you to come after me if you can. I worked with you; I worked for you; I supported you to get there (where you are). When I talk now, I now have a smelly mouth.”

Furthermore, he said that lack of justice and equity are responsible for the rise in agitation in the country. For the agitation to be curbed, he said that there has to be equity and the country must be restructured.

“We must realise that what has given rise to the agitation is lack of justice and equity. When there is justice, when there is equity, agitation will die down. How can you be expending so much energy on (Sunday) Igboho and (Nnamdi) Kanu? Igboho and Kanu are not Nigeria’s problems. Nigeria must restructure, and no one can stop that,” Bakare affirmed.
