Tunde Bakare, General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, has said Nigeria does not need another election in 2019.
Delivering his state of the nation address at his church in Lagos, Bakare stressed that what the country needed at a time such as this was a renegotiation of its union.
Bakare’s speech reads in part: “Nigeria does not need an election come 2019, but needs renegotiation of its union.
“Let me reiterate that what Nigeria needs now is not another election but a return to the drawing board to renegotiate our union. You will recall that, in 2015, I made a similar declaration in the message titled ‘The Gathering Storm and Avoidable Shipwreck: How to Avoid Catastrophic Euroclydon’.
“In that address, I called for restructuring when others were clamouring for elections. Three years later, the majority that was wrong has become the minority, and the minority that was right is becoming the majority, even as restructuring has become the buzzword in our nation.”
Recall that the former running mate to President Muhammadu Buhari had condemned the President for not reacting swiftly to the crisis created by Fulani herdsmen across the country.
