The founder of the Latter Rain Assembly in Lagos, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has revealed why Gen. Muhammadu Buhari of the APC might not be able to defeat incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan in next year’s presidential elections.

According to the clergyman, Buhari’s integrity and determination to wipe out corruption in Nigeria may not be enough to make the former Head of State as a good leader that would make Nigeria a great again.

Below is Pastor Bakare’s views on Buhari and the 2015 presidential elections during an interview conducted before the former Army general emerged as APC’s presidential candidate:

It would be recalled that Pastor  Bakare had recently blamed former President Olusegun Obasanjo for the sorry state of student unionism in the country today.

According to the Convener of the Save Nigeria Group, SNG,  Obasanjo when he was military head of state  carved his name on marble as a villain of democracy in 1978.

General Olusegun Obasanjo’s government ordered the brutal suppression of that protest. Live bullets were unleashed on protesting students,” he said.

“As we proceeded outside University of Lagos main gate, I narrowly escaped death as Akintunde Ojo, the young man standing just beside me, was gunned down. Through that incident, Obasanjo carved his name on marble as a villain of democracy.”
