After denying ambition to run for presidency, Tunde Bakare Blasts President Buhari over herdsmen attacks

– The founder of the Latter Rain Assembly has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to end the bloodletting across Nigeria
– Bakare said the All Progressives Congress-led administration has failed in most of its mandate to Nigerians
– He decried the deep plunge in Nigeria’s employment rate which shot up from 8.25 to 18.8% within two years
A Lagos-based cleric and founder of the Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to end the continued bloodshed in the country.
Bakare who was a running mate to President Buhari in the 2011 election highlighted the failures of the All Progressives Congress-led administration.
Speaking during the a broadcast titled: “It’s Time To Renegotiate Our Union” , on Sunday, January 14, Bakare said Nigeria is in dire need of restructuring.
He said although the present government has focused its policy outlook on security, job creation and anti-corruption, there are numerous signs of retrogression around the nation.

Bakare said the President Buhari-led administration was “only patching cracks around the wall” while opponents of restructuring were doing so for personal and political gains.
The clergy further noted that the ineffectiveness of the anti-corruption war led by President Buhari could be seen in the loss of cases of corruption in Nigeria.

He also decried the deep plunge in Nigeria’s employment rate which shot up from 8.25 to 18.8% within two years.
Bakare said: “For instance, in April 2017, the Federal Government lost four high-profile corruption cases in 96 hours.
“These are in addition to bizarre developments such as failure of the government to confirm a substantive chairman for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), despite the fact that the same political party controls both the executive and the legislature.
“This is not to mention the public showdown between EFCC and the Department of State Services (DSS) officials, or the opposition of the director general of the DSS to the confirmation of the acting chairman of the EFCC.”
Condemning federal government’s failure to end killings by suspected herdsmen, Bakare said: “It has done so against the backdrop of conspiratorial silence, choosing rather to label such attacks ‘an issue of communal misunderstanding,’ as the Inspector General of Police recently did in respect of the Benue attacks.

“It has treated the menace with kid gloves, even after the Global Terrorism Index 2015 described militant herdsmen as the fourth most deadly group of 2014.
“Despite the antecedents of the marauders, including the recent Adamawa incidents, Mr. President, in his New Year address to the nation, did not consider the menace or the pain of victims of previous attacks worth a mention.

“It has been reported, for instance, that as a result of the failure of government to act, there have been reprisals on herdsmen, resulting in a vicious cycle of death and destruction. Yet, Buhari is rejecting the call to restructure our nation in order to bring lasting solutions to these and other signs of sectional discontent.”
