General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare has defended President Muhammadu Buhari’s slow administration saying; “Development under President Buhari Buhari has been slow because he inherited an empty treasury. He recalled that for six months, Buhari could not appoint ministers because there was no money to pay them.
According to Bakare, even though Buhari may have taken forever to assemble his cabinet because he inherited an empty treasury, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo who also inherited an empty treasury in 1999, managed to assemble the best cabinet from across the world.
Bakare however added that there are areas in which the Buhari administration has performed better as Nigeria in the last three years no longer import rice, which is an incredible achievement and 17 local governments occupied by Boko Haram, is no longer an issue.
Speaking on the administration of Buhari which many says have been hijacked by cabals, Bakare said You cannot be a clean man surrounded by rogues, if you don’t deal with those rogues, they would color you with the same tar.
The clergy however admitted life was relatively better under the former president Goodluck Jonathan even though there was endemic and entrenched corruption under his administration.
