Pastor Tunde Bakare, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari is on the sure path to recovery.
The General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly made this known during a press conference after his Sunday morning sermon titled, “The birth pangs of a new Nigeria.”
“If you want to know whether the President (Muhammadu Buhari) is getting better (and) recovering, I said in the course of that message – he’s on the sure path to recovery. Give him time. The Niger Republic has not seen their president for a while.
“Nigeria needs an energetic leader but the circumstances of our polity have brought us to where we are that the same country that the likes Nigeria ruled at the age of 30 is now considering people in their 60s and 70s to administer it.
“What happened in France recently is a clear sign that there is going to be a change of guards almost worldwide. But let’s accept our own thing and resolve our issues with wisdom” Bakare said.
Bakare also used the opportunity to warn those wishing the president or anyone dead to desist from such acts.
“(Between) the man in the intensive care unit and the doctor treating him or wishing him dead, you don’t know who will die first.
“If God sent Isaiah back to go and tell Hezekiah that He was adding 15 years to his life, He is the only one who can do what He wills to do. Nobody should wish another person dead. We should just pray, because you would put Nigeria in disaster”, he said.
Pastor Bakare ran alongside Buhari for the presidency under the defunct Congress for Progressive Change, CPC in 2011.
