Bakare: APC Owe Nigerians Explanation On Non-Implementation Of El-Rufai Report by nairavsdollars(f): 6:50am On Nov 18
Temidayo Akinsuyi, Lagos

Pastor Tunde Bakare, former vice presidential candidate and serving overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church (CGCC), has dispelled reports credited to him that he Presi­dent Muhammadu Buhari as president in 2023.

Speaking exclusively with Daily Independent, Bakare, who was a running mate to President Buhari in the 2011 presidential election on the platform of the defunct Con­gress for Progressives Change (CPC), said his position on the outcome of the just conclud­ed presidential election in the United States of America (USA), which was won by Joe Biden, was misconstrued by the media.

He said: “I’ve realised that the Nigerian press, some­times for the sake of their sale, use headlines that, when you read the entire story, you will be wondering, ‘what has this title got to do with this?".

“I can’t stop the press from doing whatever they will with what I said, but I will say to you that there is a difference between ambition and a vision that is clear to you. The com­panion of ambition is anxiety.

“You’ve been trying to scheme to make it happen, you pursue it and so on, but if it is a clear vision from heaven and it is clear in your spirit, it’s a question of time.

“Whoever is going to deal with God must have to be patient. The vision upon my head, like Daniel will say, I saw in 1967.

“It is not today. Go and interview some of my class­mates in secondary school, they will tell you that I shared it with them.

“Speak to my wife also. Be­fore I proposed to her, I spoke about it also.

“Ask Pastor E.A. Adeboye in 1984, when I became a part of his church, I spoke with him about where my journey is going.That was probably one of the reasons he encouraged me to step in when President Bu­hari asked me to be his run­ning mate. I don’t want you to continue asking people.”

Bakare, who said he does not belong to any political par­ty at the moment, said howev­er he had a significant role to play in the emergence of the 16th president of Nigeria in 2023.

“My destiny is intertwined with that of Nigeria. By the grace of God, I have a role to play.

“When I wrote the book on my mum titled, ‘The Woman Who Saw the Future’, page 85 of that book says: ‘By the time the 16th president will come into manifestation, I have a significant role to play and it is a role of destiny. I shared it with Mr. President himself.

“There is no place where the president and I sat down and said, ‘Oh, you will succeed me in 2023’.

“And I’ve not openly, any­where, joined a political par­ty and say this is the political party I’m going to use; neither have I put any structure in place.

“But I do know this, if God said to Samuel, to the House of Jesse, anoint one of his sons, I have provided myself a king in his house, King Saul can do whatever he wants to do, God has already said good­bye.

“All the Adonijahs of this world can have war chests and buy chariots to become the next king after David, if it belongs to Solomon, they may not invite him to their party.

“They will hail Adonijah and say ‘Hail King Adonijah’ before he will know that Sol­omon is the preferred choice.

“If it’s true or false, it’s a question of time. Be patient! These things will come into manifestations in the days to come.

“I believe very strongly that God is raising me to shep­herd this nation just as I have shepherded the church.

“In Psalms 78 verses 70-72, he took David from follow­ing the ewes, little sheep, to come and shepherd Israel as a nation, and he shepherded Israel with the integrity of his heart and the skillfulness of his hands.

“I can’t wait to step into the fray, add my own quota alongside other people, men and women of goodwill who want Nigeria to stop being a potentially great nation, to work for that great nation to manifest. Responsibility is a price of greatness and if we are responsible, we should think deep alongside others and create a blueprint that will transform Nigeria.”

While clarifying his state­ment on Joe Biden’s emer­gence, Bakare said he was merely emphasising the fact that nobody should be written off in a contest.

According to him, “I said, look at Joe Biden. Everyone more or less, wrote him off.

“They called him Sleepy Joe. They said he even made a blunder choosing a black lady (Kamala Harris) who joined lesbians together as husband and wife as his running mate. So, Biden had lost that elec­tion before it happened.

“Joe Biden looked harm­less but he won the election. Go and investigate, the bulk of the voters are young people.

“God will raise young princes of this nation who will do what is right very soon. That is the context in which I narrated what I said.

“I have no relationship with Joe Biden or with Don­ald Trump, but we know that whatever happens in America can have a domino effect on the entire world.

“So, if Joe Biden who no­body thought could muster any serious support ended up with the number of mil­lions of votes he got, then we have to be careful in writing people off.

“Although Biden had unique experience, not only as a senator but also as a for­mer vice president for eight years and he has attempted these thrice, he lost the pri­mary twice.

“When the time comes, he has it. President Buhari tried three different times until he got it the fourth time.”

Also, speaking on restruc­turing, Bakare who advocated geo-economic restructuring with emphasis on devolution of powers said the APC-led Federal Government owes Nigerians explanation why it has failed to implement the report of APC Committee on True Federalism headed by Governor Nasir El-Rufai.

“Well, they have done something on restructuring but not as much as one would have expected. But you cannot say they’ve not done anything because under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, the Nasir El-Rufai committee was formed to look into the issue of true federal­ism and restructuring.

“They made fantastic, for­midable recommendations to the government and to APC. Why the government has not implemented it and what is hindering them, they will have the questions to answer in the days to come. But they still have the oppor­tunity within the next one or two years because there is no army that is as powerful as an idea whose time has come.

“I’m emphasising geo-eco­nomic restructuring so that we don’t put the cart before the horse. Let us begin with the devolution of powers. Let us make the centre less attrac­tive, not weak, strong state and strong centre. And states that have commonalities in culture, ethnicity, language and proximity can come to­gether and form geo-political zones without disrupting the structure. But let them put their resources together to develop their own area.

“Nigeria needs redemption right now and we are praying to God so that it can be prop­erly restructured and it can be better than it ever was in our trajectory”, he said.

Whoever you plan to sell to us in 2023, better forget it and concentrate on selling the gospel of the kingdom, as every clergy that is worth his calling should. Same way Mbaka sold PMB to us way back in 2015 as the Messiah of Nigeria. Everyone knows that PMB turned out to be an accomplished failure.

Whoever thinks Nigeria would be restructured under this present administration is day dreaming.

Time and quality of people surrounding the admin Doesn't favor that.

favor914:
only Mumus think the Federal Government has the prerogative to restructure Nigeria, those are sentimental children that know nothing about Government. Two third of the states of the federation is needed (26) for any restructuring, it will never happen in your lifetime.

Two-Third Majority is 24, a good reason why South East is currently 5 states today and North West is 7. An injustice to Southern Protectorate; if you say Protectorate is "old skool", check the Legal system.

I believe we can still achieve restructuring gradually, leaving the contentious aspect till another time

28. Amending the Nigerian Constitution to ensure devolution of powers, duties, and responsibilities to states in order to entrench true Federalism – FAILED#

President Buhari and the APC have continuously mocked proponents of restructuring and have denied they ever made the promise.

This Tunde Bakare must be day dreaming or grand-standing.As if he does not know that no promise ever made by these liars, fraudsters and criminal have have ever been honoured.

The Affairs of NIGERIA is mostly run by Northerners, expecting reform, restructuring is as good as expecting buhari administration to accept IPOB request for Biafra, that's mission impossible, we all know how the greedy Northern Politicians and Elites will be badly affected hence restructuring isn't in their agenda!

El rufai report means nothing....what we want is simple

1) a Nigeria with 6 zones
2) let people be give choice to choose we zone they want through referendum
3) each zones would decide how many Provence they have and how it's created and how power is shared
4) each zone control their police , tax system , education , agro policy and minimum wage
5) each zone has an election vote of one ...wining each zones means one vote u need four vote to rule Nigeria

Nothing like restructuring, just another cliche that failures use as a reason for their shortcomings, ask them to elaborate on what restructuring means in real context, they don’t have a clue, just empty water cannon heads follow follow.

Explain what you mean by restructuring? Restructure your state first, so there could be equality & harmony amongst all tribes, good governance, & we hold the State Government accountable, do you need President Buhari for that?, Charity they say begins at home.

Ok.
I want restructure because we in the south control our population, We are ready to build our region, we only give birth to children we can cater for and we do not allow illegal immigrants to come in into the south , we may have very few Beninese coming in but they contributes to the economy compare to how Chadians, Malian, Nigeriens and Senegalese are following in from the north, after staying there for a while they gather courage and then move to the south to sell stuffs on wheel barrows and ride okadas , they are the one responsible for banditry , bokoharam and kidnapping, the northerners are not proactive enough to stop the menance , you can see Yoruba has establish Amotekun to fight the insecurity when the northererns doing whatever we don't know in Kastina, Kaduna south, Kaduna -Abuja express way, kogi Axis. That is what you get when you keep your border open for your kinsmen to come in without documentation because of votes and electoral gain, that is what you get when a governor from Niger republic came with his entourages to campaign for you in kano , because he want to get Nigeriens in kano to vote for you and you pretend you don't know their are aliens in the country

No 2. If you look at how states receive funds from the federation account , the northern states have no excuse not to be more developed than the southern states because they are even getting more money, but their youth either join bandits or move to the south to ride okada, why? Because they lack education which their politicians are doing little and nothing at all to improve, a parasitic relationship will only pull down the south.

There are so many states in Nigeria with potential to be great, Kogi and Benue alone can feed Nigeria if they go into mechanized farming, but they keeping waiting for fund from the center, or tax bread ,
