- Pastor Tunde Bakare has warned Nigerians ahead of 2019 general elcetions
- He warned that Nigeria was on a collision course again as the 2019 elections draw near
- Bakare said he worked closely behind the scenes with the two leading candidates in the presidential elections in 2015
Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly (LRA), says he worked with President Muhammadu Buhari and former president Goodluck Jonathan to ensure Nigeria escaped disintegration in 2015.
Bakare who disclosed this while speaking in Glasgow, UK, to the African forum Scotland and the Association of Nigerians in Scotland also warned that the country was on a collision course again as the 2019 elections approach.
“Unknown to many observers, in 2015, following the lifting of the embargo, I worked closely behind the scenes with the two leading candidates in the presidential elections at the time, then President Goodluck Jonathan of the PDP and General Muhammadu Buhari of the APC, towards ensuring that the election results were upheld and that the transition was smooth,” he said.
Going further, preacher said that: “I saw at close quarters how the fate of a nation could hang on a single decision. Therefore, believe me when I tell you that we escaped disintegration by the whiskers.
“Now, four years after that escape, our nation is once again headed on a collision course with probable instability unless the tense atmosphere associated with our four-year electocratic insanity is managed with utmost wisdom.
“Once again, I have found myself in the inner workings of the chaotic political process and I can tell you that we live in precarious times. How long can our nation stand if we continue along this path? Is it not time to address the foundations once and for all?
“What, then, is the way forward and what is the role of the diaspora? Answers to these questions will constitute the concluding aspects of this address.”
