Pastor Tunde Bakare, the Senior Pastor of the Citadel Global Community Church (formerly known as the Latter Rain Church), expressed his concern on Sunday about the adverse effects of subsidy removal on Nigerians. He urged President Bola Tinubu to focus on addressing corruption rather than burdening Nigerians.
Regarding the removal of fuel subsidy and its negative impact on the economy, Pastor Bakare emphasized, “Mr. President, combat corruption, not the Nigerian citizens. No economy can prosper when built on impunity.”
Delivering a sermon on the theme “Vice, Virtue, and Time: The Three Things That Shall Never Stand Still” at the church auditorium situated on Kuditat Abiola Way in Ikeja, Lagos, Pastor Bakare criticized the proposed military intervention by ECOWAS in Niger Republic.
He expressed, “The level of support from Nigeriens for Nigeria is currently at an all-time low. Therefore, engaging in warfare would be counterproductive. While we condemn coup d’état in West Africa, we understand that the situation demands deep introspection among African leaders.”
Pastor Bakare called for strong leadership from Nigeria during these times, particularly questioning President Tinubu’s capacity to provide moral leadership even within the domestic context.
Filled with optimism, Pastor Bakare believed that God’s intervention in Nigeria is imminent after his state of the nation broadcast. He emphasized, “We must share what the Lord has revealed to us. Today’s state of the nation broadcast is a result of what we have seen and heard. After this state of the nation broadcast, you will witness God’s intervention in our country. Today will mark the moment when God intervened in Nigeria’s affairs.”
