Fiery Pastor Tunde Bakare, founder and senior pastor of the Citadel Global Community Church in Lagos, says, President Muhammadu Buhari has disappointed Nigerians by not meeting their expectations.
Bakare who was the Vice-Presidential candidate to Buhari in the 2011 election, said in an Instagram Live Chat with the popular journalist and publisher of Ovation magazine based in Ghana, Dele Momodu.
“As far as I know and I have said it before, the expectations of Nigerians including the gentleman interviewing me and everyone who rose up at that time to say we need a breath fresh air by bringing President Buhari.
” I think whatever it is, the expectations have not been met and so, therefore, there is a feeling of disappointment everywhere,” the cleric said.
On whether Buhari has changed, Bakare said: “It is still the same President Buhari. In the midst of many competing interests and challenges.
“We all respond to things differently but as far as I know, the President is still himself, he is till Muhammadu Buhari.
“You can say power changes people but as power changed, is he making the best of the situation and the circumstance he has found himself in? You will be the one to answer that question.”
Bakare was, however, hopeful that things could still improve before the end of the Buhari administration in 2023.
“I don’t pray that this will continue till 2023. If this continues till 2023, we are in a big problem.”
