Bakare sparks fresh controversy, says ‘thieves’ in ‘Bourdillon’ won’t succeed in 2023

Pastor-Tunde-Bakare

Serving overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare, has sent a message to those living in highbrow Bourdillon, Ikoyi, Lagos, feeding fat on public funds saying that they would eventually be made to vomit the funds they have stolen.

Recall that only few weeks ago, a video of Bakare had surfaced where he was declaring that he would succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, generating widespread reactions.

TheCable reports that Bakare during a sermon at his church on Sunday, noted that the people were praising the one who stole from them, and regarding him as a generous man.

While lamenting the poor state of roads in Lagos State, the preacher criticised the state government for failing to fix the roads in the state since 1999. He added that such “selfish people” had failed to impact positively on the lives of the people.

The pastor noted that rather than treat such people as the thieves they were, some would rather say “he is a thief but he is generous.”

“The foolish person would no longer be called generous. You can say ‘so so and so’ has stolen all the money in the state, but he is a very generous man, you are foolish.

“That’s why potholes are killing you, that’s what pools of water… you can’t drive now anymore because what is meant for road has been stolen since democracy began, they are living larger than life having jets here, having jets there, having house in Bourdillon, having house in this place, having house in that place, having house in every place at the expense of the public.

“You will not go without vomiting what you have stolen. Wait, and see. Because a king will reign in righteousness and princes will rule with justice. Unfortunately, Nigeria people, you celebrate your villains and crucify your heroes.”

“You’re complaining about Flood. Since 1999 the condition of this road for 30 years now since I’ve been here has remained the same. They’ll do patch-patch, join-join, until rain comes and reveal that they have not been right with the people,” Bakare added.

“And you think your children will stand shoulder high above the perversity you have created? I see the race to 2023, congratulations Presidential ‘hope-fools’. You cannot, you have stolen what belong to all.

“You can tell the man, he is a very generous man, he would pay for your hospital bill. Because he didn’t build hospitals. The foolish person will no longer be called generous.

“Woe betides the government that does not know that the purpose of government is the welfare of the people.”
