Serving overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has spoken up against the Buhari-led administration.
While preaching in his church recently, the popular clergyman recounted how he supported Buhari to get to where he is today, but he doesn’t listen to him anymore because he now has “smelly mouth”.
Pastor Bakare, who was Buhari’s running mate in the 2011 presidential election, cited how biblical prophets rose up against bad governments and said he’s no longer interested in meeting or having a dialogue with anyone because “this is war”.
He also dared the president to come after him “since that is his usual style”.
“Sovereignty is not in your hand anymore, you are commander-in-chief of nothing, except the people put you there. The highest office in the land is the office of the citizen. Nigerians are going to rise and demand for their rights.
“And I dare you to try to stretch your hand against me like you have done to others, then you will know whether God sent me or I’m just empty and just making noise.
“Nigeria for Nigeria; the time to save this country has come; the government can’t save us, the military can’t safe us, Nigerians must rise and demand for what is rightly theirs.
“Get out of my way, get out of my way, this is the final warning. I loved you, I served you, I respected you, I did everything to make it work for you but you turned against me and God has turned against you, get out of my way”
Pastor Bakare also announced that the “Nigeria-for Nigeria Movement” has begun and he is prepared to lead the movement. According to him, the movement will liberate Nigeria.
