General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has come under attack over his recent statement on President Muhammadu Buhari and ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.
Bakare had in an interview on Wednesday, said Buhari did not appoint ministers for six months because there was no money from previous administration to pay them.
He also spoke on Buhari’s government achievements.
According to him, “We are no longer importing rice for three years that is an incredible achievement by Buhari’s governmfnt, seventeen local government occupied by Boko Haram no longer an issue.”
But reacting, former aide to ex president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri countered the claims by Bakare concerning Buhari’s adminstration.
Omokri, on his Twitter page, pointed out flaws from Bakare’s speech, urging him to stop lying.
He wrote: “Pastor Tunde Bakare should stop LYING that Nigeria under Buhari no longer imports rice. According to the United States Department of Agriculture(USDA), rice imports have increased 60% under Buhari and we will be the world’s 2nd largest importer in 2019.
“Pastor Tunde Bakare should stop LYING that Buhari met an “empty treasury”. Jonathan handed over $2.07 billion in the Excess Crude Account, $29. 6 billion Foreign Reserve and $5.2 billion in NLNG dividends for the Buhari govt. Is that ‘empty treasury’?
“Pastor Tunde Bakare should stop LYING that Buhari has cleared Boko Haram from “seventeen local governments” in Borno. As Bakare was granting that interview, Baga, Doron-Baga, Kross Kawwa, Bunduran, Kekeno and Kukawa towns are under Boko Haram/ISWAP control.”
