President Muhammadu Buhari is doubling efforts now to ensure that a legacy that cannot be erased is left behind.
This is the position of the Senior Pastor of the Latter Rain Assembly, LRA, Tunde Bakare, over the activities of the president in recent time.
Bakare made the submission on Sunday while speaking with journalists in Lagos.
“If you spend eight years and there is nothing tangible recorded against your name, that is not right. Remember, for a considerable part of his first term, he was ill; thank God he made it back. It’s like he is doubling efforts now to ensure that a legacy that cannot be erased is left behind because four years will soon come and go.”
He added that the president had been battling with the problem of corruption and insecurity with the view that Nigeria would develop well without those problems.
He however said to achieve a better Nigeria, there was the need for the president to rise above partisanship and petty ethnic sentiments.
He said every section of the country must be treated fairly, particularly, in the area of power sharing.
Said he: “Time has come to sit on a table of brotherhood and that’s why I said a President like President Muhammadu Buhari must rise up above partisanship and above petty ethnic sentiments, like Abraham Lincoln, like George Washington, to say let’s sit down, Nigeria must move forward.
“It is bigger than any of us and it will be better for us to work together by getting the best of the North and the best of the South to think through the road path for the greatness of this nation.
“I detest the saying that a particular section of this country must not be trusted with power; no! Then, we cannot live together because nobody is going to be servant of anybody.
“This is not time for mutual suspicion; this is a season for collaboration. All the infighting must stop; it is like father and mother are fighting and the children are confused. The season cannot afford this; let’s mend the fences. Let’s come together and let us begin to pursue a strategic objective that will set Nigeria on the path of predictable progress.”
