Many Nigerians may be disappointed in President Muhammadu Buhari, but not so for former President Olusegun Obasanjo, and fiery preacher and former Vice Presidential candidate to Buhari, Pastor Tunde Bakare.
On a visit to Taraba State, Obasanjo said: “So far, Buhari has not disappointed us. I trust him, he will not fail Nigerians. I know he will overcome the challenges the country is currently facing.”
On his part, while visiting the seat of power, Aso Villa, in Abuja, the General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, called for understanding from Nigerians over the economic pains in the land.
“It’s too early and just too soon to begin to judge. If there is anything I know about Mr. President, it is that he has a good heart. He loves this country and he wants the country to run well….But it takes time. I know we are all impatient and in a hurry and I trust we will come out of the woods, Bakare said after meeting his former boss.
“When you are driving on a wrong direction, for example, you are going to Ibadan and you face Badagry, and you get to Cotonou and you realise you have gone in the wrong direction for too long a time, then you make a U-turn, there will be some suffering you have to go through.
“Pain is part of gain. No pain no gain.” The years of wastage and all that we have done wrong has finally caught up with us. “All we are praying for is wisdom for this government to do things right and to do the right things so that gradually, we can begin to come out of the woods,” Bakare said after a meeting with Buhari.
