I Pity President Buhari – El Rufai Laments at Tunde Bakare’s Church

by on August 1, 2016

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai was at the Sunday service of  The Latter Rain Assembly, where he was a guest. El Rufai noted that the Economic state of Nigeria was saddening and that Nigeria was passing through the worst economic downturn ever.

He added that President Muhammadu Buhari has appeared on the scene to bail Nigeria out of economic difficulties.

“We have always known that there is massive corruption in Nigeria but the revelations of the past one year have shocked even the most pessimistic of critics. Nearly 70 per cent of Nigeria’s oil revenues disappeared without a trace”.

“Of course, there must be consequences for that. When we sit down with President Buhari these days, I pity him. I pity him because he has always become President anytime Nigeria is in trouble.

“First, it was after the NPN (National Party of Nigeria) government had almost grounded the economy (in 1984) and now, after a massive looting of the nation’s treasury; and he has to lead the team to fix it.

“But we are working round the clock to fix these problems. With your prayers and the cooperation of Nigerians, we shall surmount these problems.”

President Buhari loves humanity passionately; his strength is that he believes everyone could be trusted, which is also a weakness. When he gives people any assignment, he expects people to carry out the assignment with all honesty.Unfortunately, this is not so all the time as we have seen over time and that’s why I said it is a weakness.

“The President is not a man who has interest in making money for himself or for his friends. Mistakes could be made; only God is perfect.”

Speaking on his position as the governor of Kaduna state, El-Rufai attributed it to the advice of Pastor Tunde Bakare, the general overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, who he said invited him to join the Congress for Progressive Change in 2011.

“I already made up my mind never to go into public office after I left office the last time. Pastor Bakare told me that I should not be bitter; that I should forgive anyone who might have offended me and should move on with my life.

“He then invited me to the join Buhari’s party, the CPC, in 2011 and we have continued since then. Today, I’m close to President Buhari because of what Pastor Bakare has done. Today, I’m a governor because of what Pastor Bakare has done. I’m no longer sad; I’ve forgiven everyone; and I’m no longer bitter.

“More importantly, we need the prayers of Nigerians to succeed.”

    So unfortunately the way Nigerians are looking things totally out of reasoning eyes. El- Ruafa’i lamented what happened before, that lead to our present conditions. and putting everything humanly possible to fix it. but the shallow minds are saying trashed?
