Kill Corruption, Not Nigerians, Tunde Bakare Tells Tinubu

On Sunday, Pastor Tunde Bakare, the Serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, called upon President Bola Tinubu to address the widespread corruption in the nation’s economy and alleviate the suffering of Nigerians.

“Mr President, even though you have announced some palliatives, let me remind you that palliatives cannot address the root cause of the problem,” Bakare said in an ideologically charged “State of the Nation” address broadcast on Sunday.

“Therefore, we demand that you address the root cause of the problem. Take the yoke off the neck of the poor, go after the loot, recover the loot, and retool it to the benefit of Nigerians. In simple terms, Mr President, kill corruption, not Nigerians.”

Bakare’s remarks echoed widespread feelings within the nation, seen through a brief nationwide protest and lengthy talks between organized labor and the Federal Government. These discussions followed fuel price increases due to subsidy removal and the growing cost of living.

Responding to this, Senator Ajibola Basiru, the National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), raised concerns about Bakare’s ability to criticize the President’s economic choices.

“I must quickly comment on what you played that Pastor Bakare said, although I don’t see him as a politician and, with respect to him, I don’t see him as even competent to say what he has said,” Basiru said.

“The fact that you are talking of palliatives does not mean that we’re not confronting the headlong of correcting the dysfunctions and imbalances in the economy. So, we’re both addressing the issue of palliative as an immediate step and addressing the fundamental problem.”
