The General Overseer of Citadel Global Community Church (CGCC) and former running mate to President Muhammadu Buhari under CPC, Pastor Tunde Bakare has advised the president to appoint new people to solidify his legacy.
According to him, president Muhammadu Buhari’s “utterances especially when he granted the last interview, the few occasions he had spoken to this nation, showed that he was overwhelmed by the things happening.”
Bakare said “A tree does not make a forest, if I were in his shoes, I would try other things if all I’ve been doing does not work. Maybe it’s another time to look for those who can really deliver instead of these doldrums we have been going round about this mountain for 8 years.”
Bakare added that “Something needs to be done if he’s mindful of his legacy. And that’s been my cry.
“If there is going to be an outstanding, enduring legacy that cannot be easily erased or rubbish, something needs to be done very very soon. Whatever it is. They must sit down and put on their thinking cap, and say look, we cannot let it continue this way.”
When asked whether he would be contesting for president , he said, he could run for president. When that time comes, the whole world would know. “Nothing stops me or debars me doing so.
“Nothing can stop me. I respect other people’s rights and encourage them to rise and run. But right now, that’s not my main focus. My focus is if there is no Nation to preside over, what are you running except you want to run out of the country.
