Why has this award not been closed since the Hall of shame was closed?

Isnt it comical that some people would protest their kinsman Achebe being nominated and not do the same when Nnaji their kinsman is nominated for this?

Taking a cursory look at this thread with emphasis on the votes cast so far,I can safely conclude that the self styled Serving Overseer of Latter Rain Assembly,Pastor Tunde Bakare is coasting home to victory,without pre-empting the moderators and those who are yet to cast their votes.

However,below is my tribute to the man I refer to as as a multi-dimensional persona.Tunde Bakare,pastor,politician,lawyer,activist:

Tunde Bakare 58 IS A LAWYER AND PASTOR but he is standing out from the maddening crowd of lewd lawyers and prodigal pastors.He has shown exemplary courage and taken his courage on a road show.He and his group, the Save Nigeria Group, has touched the imagination of his fellow citizens by restoring their right to question and challenge inequitable government policies by unblocking their minds ,which have been weighed down by successive oppressive governments.

However,the consistency with which Bakare challenges the government to do what is right and lawful for the benefit of the Nigerian citizens often portrays as a man who is wont to cause controversy and set the society on fire.He is a man of courage.He has moved against the virulent forces.

When Gani Fawehinmi was alive,people accused the irrepressible human rights lawyer of the love of fame and publicity simply because he showed courage in confronting the establishment when occasions called for it,but he needed neither fame nor publicity because he had both already though his legal writings and publications.For Gani and Bakare,the show of courage is no scheme for advancement,it is no scheme to to humiliate others or to make life comfortable for themselves.For them,the show of courage seems to be a way of life.For real men of courage,fear is afraid of them.

Bakare,the Pastor of Latter Rain Assembly has shown the kind of courage exhibited by the Hebrew midwives,Shiphrah and Puah,who were instructed by the autocratic King Pharoah of Egypt to kill all boys as soon as they were born.The defied the King and let the boys live.Bakare’s courage can also be compared to that of Moses’s mother who hid her newly born son for three months and risked the anger of the King.Her courage saved her boy.

Bakare is the equivalent of the Good Samaritan.Some Pastors are Bad Samaritans,they are truth benders,they scavenge for money by hook or crook,their only desire is to build empires of filth and this vaulting ambition blinds them to the true essence of religion,blinds them from dispensing the gift of Good Samaritanism.At a time of depression,desperation sends people to all sort of places for placation but Bakare is one of the exceptional shepherds who worry about the well-being of their sheep whether the attend his church or not.That is why he would take up the fight for a better Nigeria.

Bakare is also a lawyer.Lawyers are partisan professionals.They are hired by one party,they speak for one party,they defend one party,the party that hires them.As a lawyer,he could have chosen to defend big,thieving multi-nationals who are ripping off poor widows and orphans but he did not.No one hired Bakare but he is defending Nigeria without a fee.That is the stuff of patriotism.

Bakare does not have the gift of flaming oratory.He says commonsensical things in a frank and direct manner.He doesn’t waste words,he just says what needs to be said but what he says touches the nerve because it is true.Truth is oratory.It needs no embellishment,no decoration,no dressing up.And it takes me of courage to say the truth,the inconvenient truth and to fight for its triumph.

A good Nigeria can only be built by courage.As J.M Barrie said “Courage is the thing.All goes if courage goes.”.Tunde Bakare,pastor,lawyer,activist is a man of great courage which is why NAIRALANDERS in my humble opinion has chosen him as winner of the POLITICS SECTION:HALL OF FAME 2012.
