Buhari attending Ajimobi-Ganduje wedding shows how insensitive our leaders are – Pastor Tunde Bakare



Buhari attending Ajimobi-Ganduje wedding shows how insensitive our leaders are - Pastor Tunde Bakare - BellaNaijaPastor of the Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare, has said President Muhammadu Buhari attending the Ajimobi-Ganduje wedding on Saturday shows how insensitive Nigerian leaders are, The Cable reports.

President Buhari was on Saturday at the wedding ceremony of Idris Abiola Ajimobi and Fatima Umar Ganduje in Kano State.

Idris Ajimobi is the son of Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi, while Fatima Ganduje is the daughter of Kano State Governor Umar Ganduje.

Other governors in the country were also in attendance, with leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), including Bola Tinubu.

Bakare said Buhari attending the wedding just 2 weeks after the abduction of 110 girls by Boko Haram, and 2 days after the killing of several in Rann, was insensitive.

We’ve gotten to a stage in the country where the President is like a king, he said, giving the example of a minister welcoming Yusuf Buhari at the airport when he returned from Germany where he went to for further treatment after his motorcycle accident. He said:

Forgive my ill-mannerism, but I could not comprehend why a governor will celebrate the wedding of his daughter, and another governor of his son, on the front pages of newspapers, flashing it before our eyes, when other peoples’ daughters are in captivity.

If any of them had lost a daughter in that captivity, would they celebrate that way? I know the Bible says rejoice with them that rejoice, but I do not know what the president of Nigeria was doing there.

And somebody came to say, let me explain to you, it is Islamic tradition, before this time, about January, they had agreed, that he will be the one to give the bride away and Tinubu will be the one to pay the dowry, and present the son, and they agreed long before now.

I looked at him and said the president of Nigeria wanted to come to my daughter’s wedding, and I said to him, sir, don’t come. That is beneath your office. Face the work of the state and keep serving.

And 22 governors showed up to mark register, when 110 daughters of citizens of your nation were captured by Boko Haram that you said you have already technically defeated?

It just shows how insensitive our leaders are. We have gotten to a stage that our president has become a king and a monarch. That his son who rode his pleasurable bike that almost claimed his life, will be returning from an overseas trip, where he had received special healthcare that Nigerians cannot afford, that it took a whole minister of state to go and welcome him, because he has no job.

If you truly know the truth, you will weep, if you know how much we are owing as a nation, you will weep. For 16 years of PDP they borrowed N6 trillion, for three years of APC, they borrowed N11 trillion.

And they are not going to pay the debt. You and I, and our children, and our children’s children will pay the debt, unless they write them off again.

    They are all cut from the same cloth. Nigerians should be willing to take the risk of fresh candidates in 2019.

    oh please, how else can you get 22 governors in one sitting without having to pay their airfare.

    At this point, weddings and funerals are the place to be to do cost-saving governmental work.

      @tunmi, the Nigerian taxpayers are not only paying for said 22 governors and the President for a supposedly private visit, but also for the 22 ADCs, DSS personnel, police orderlies and guards, personal assistants, and the sundry hangers-on that travel with the Circus carnival that we call ‘government’ in Nigeria.

    Buhari may also be telling us that the kidnapping is not all that serous!
    That the girls are hidden for an agenda/ business. Are people not benefiting from Chibok girls saga? Shine your eyes

    In addition, at least 200 tax payer cars fueled with taxes will be there. What am I saying, even our not so VIP friends in Nigeria have their own orderlies talk less of these ” royals”. When will the people stop giving welfare to these leeches? Housing?, Car, ✅, driver, paid for. Orderlies for each “Oga✅, if Oga has 5 wives, each wife gets an orderly ✅?Pocket money from state and fed for events” etc. These folks live in McCastle section 8 housing and get all their welfare from taxpayers. It’s opposite the developed countries and I wish people will forget “slaying” on SM even for a week and protest this evil on SM. Anyway Naijas are used to suffering and “owambeing”
