In this interview Rudolf Okonkwo talks to Pastor Tunde Bakare on range of issues affecting the Nigerian church.
Your point would have been objective until you the last sentence. That is exactly what is pushing Nigeria backward. Ethnic sentiment
If u don't like what Bakare is saying, it's ya own cup of bitter tea. If Buhari. on the other hand is rich, like his contemporaries, it will be plastered all over him. Or is he one of the retired heads of state bidding for P.H.C.N? People love writing rubbish when they hate to appreciate courage and doggedness in fighting corruption and its evil perpetrators. Bakare is all right and so is Buhari, believe it or not.
Compare and contrast your reporting pattern on Sheikh Gumi and Pastor Bakare. Is this a headline: "Pastor Tunde Bakare Speaks On The State Of The Nigerian Church On SaharaTV"? While on Gummi you wrote "The Northern Emirate System is UnIslamic"- Gumi, to fuel another controversy. Even from the beginning Bakare appeared to be a prophet of doom in his response while Gummi never called for protest, revolution that cannot be said of Pastor Bakare. The type of questions you asked the two shows how partial you are? Why you did not write "Gumi speaks on the state of Northern Traditional Institutions" or "Nigeria should anticipate the like of Arab revolutions"? This is subjective, bias and sentimental reporting.
sorry for bakare......just hope he doesnt miss it all at last. busy fighting and castigating his fellow pastors will neva earn him anything from nigerians.
he has failed the church, why dont he be neutral and fight for d so-called nigerian masses? may God help him
Bakare is even worst than the pastors he is criticizing for Buhari, SNG and CPC. We all saw Buhari fly about in jets to campaign-with bakare a man of God! Why did he not use horses instead? Bakare who kept quiet while Christians were being killed daily in the North by members of Boko Haram which his mentor Buhari heads-has no moral right to talk about social issues! Life is a choice! It was this same Bakare who said Buhari was too old for aso rock-but later went back to swallow his own vomit-by becoming the VP to him. Bakare it was who asked if late abiola had no elders in his family to advise him against going into politics-Abiola never came back alive from that trip-if bakare had stayed out of politics like Desmond tutu ati Martin Luther king-and fought for the rights of the masses-he would have won the hearts of many-again why did bakare remain silent all this while when Yoruba pastors started buying jets in 9ja until an Itsekiri man was gifted one by God!?
Pastor Bakare is just saying his own.
I was enjoying your write up until I got the part about Jesse Jackson "as a clergy fighting a bad system." Who do you recon quarterback corruption in all Nigerian govt, be it civilian or military?
The Pastors and Bishops, like Bakare have nothing to offer for constituting themselves as instruments of silent mass destruction being used by the europeans to destroy generations of Nigerians, Africans and Whites silently through continuous pressure on ignorant citizens to accept that Jesus is the only way and deceiving innocent followers to falsely believe that their reward is in heaven in the event of death, thereby losing all rights as human beings while alive. They should tell the truth to enable the people receive Divine Knowledge to know why they are living. So they should shut up.
Pastor Bakare and Rev Kukah are doing their job well,it is clear that our whole establishment is swimming in the gutter of corruption and the clergy are towing their lines instead of opposing them.
Rev Desmond Tutu,Rev Martin Luther(jnr),the venerable Dalai Lama,Rev Jesse Jackson to mention a few are clergy who have fought bad systems and prevailed.However the private jet pastors who mingle with corrupt politicians and receive donations from people who partake in criminal activities are a total disgrace to Christianity.
To Rev Bakare,more grease to your elbow and God is there to judge you,no man can do that judgement,just keep saying the truth.
