The founder of The Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari indeed inherited ‘rot’ from the past administration and is working himself to the bones in order to put things in order. He implored Nigerians to be patient with the President as the desired change cannot be achieved in one day.
Recall that Buhari had recently said memories of the past administration led by President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan will never be overlooked, stressing that he will continue to keep the “mistakes” in view, to guard against repeating them, as according to him, the sufferings presently experienced in the country are the outcome of those mistakes.
Speaking with the Punch, the convener of the Save Nigeria Group backed the President, saying, “The human memory is fickle and we forget things easily. In the past administration, in Borno State, how many local governments were seized by Boko Haram? They were many. But today, not a single one is being controlled by the sect.
“President Buhari inherited rot from the past administration and we forget so quickly because our expectations are so high. The Change mantra was so real to us that we thought those who were tenants would become landlords overnight and those who were riding ‘okada’ would just own Mercedes Benz cars.
“Things don’t happen that way. If it took God seven days to fix the chaos in the earth, please give us a break because a day with God is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day. Is this government working or they are just sleeping? “I love what former President Olusegun Obasanjo said recently. He told us how he inherited a low foreign reserve and then went ahead to get the best and the brightest people to build it. That’s what is needed here.
