Pastor Tunde Bakare has called out Buhari to tell him that he will never support anything that is against the rule of law and the violation of people’s right.
The founder and presiding pastor of Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare has tasked President Muhammadu Buhari to build a strong legacy that could determine an accurate succession after his tenure as president of Nigeria.
According to Daily Trust, He said a key responsibility that history bestows on Buhari is “to institutionalise systems of accurate succession that will build and sustain the Nigeria we desire.”
He also pointed out the issue of harassment of journalists and activists citing the case of the founder of Sahara Reporter and former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, who was recently released after spending over 200 days in custody over his #RevolutionNow campaign.
“Mustering the apparatus of government force against those who criticise the government by the words of their mouths or the strokes of their pens is nothing but a petty path of vengeance that will eventually boomerang.”
He stated that he will never support evil no more who is involved and any attempt to stifle free speech through the proposed social media regulation should be jettisoned.
“I will not support evil no matter who perpetrates it. I will not support the violation of people’s rights. Anything that is against the rule of law, I will not support it. It will never happen to me, that is like attacking my own constituency, it doesn’t matter whose ox is gored.”, Bakare added.
