The General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare has called on Nigerians to be patient with President Muhammadu Buhari, adding that the President has a “good heart, and will bring the country “out of the woods”.
He said this while speaking to State House correspondents when he visited the president on Friday.
“It’s too early and just too soon to begin to judge. If there is anything I know about Mr. President, it is that he has a good heart. He loves this country and he wants the country to run well. But it takes time. I know we are all impatient and in a hurry and I trust we will come out of the woods,” he said.
“When you are driving on a wrong direction, for example, you are going to Ibadan and you face Badagry, and you get to Cotonou and you realise you have gone in the wrong direction for too long a time, then you make a U-turn, there will be some suffering you have to go through.
Pain is part of gain. No pain no gain. The years of wastage and all that we have done wrong has finally caught up with us. All we are praying for is wisdom for this government to do things right and to do the right things so that gradually, we can begin to come out of the woods,” he added.
