Nigeria In One Minute

Bakare to Nigerians, be patient change for good takes time



Pastor Tunde Bakare, the Serving Overseer of Latter Rain Assembly, has begged Nigerians to be patient with President Muhammadu Buhari.

He spoke with State House correspondents after meeting the President at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Friday, assuring that the expected change will come but still need a little time.

“I will like to appeal to all Nigerians that we should just excise a bit of patience. This change will not become chain that will tie all of us down.

“Change for good takes time and we should just exercise a little bit more of patience. We trust that government is listening and the leaders are listening too and they will respond to the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians.

“Pain is part of gain. No pain, no gain. The years of wastage and all that we have done wrong have finally caught up with us.

“All we are praying for is wisdom for this government to think right and to do the right things, so that gradually, we can begin to come out of the woods,” he said.

Bakare, was Buhari’s running mate in the 2011 presidential election on the platform of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC).
