The General Overseer of Mountain of Liberation and Miracle Ministries a.k.a Liberation City, Pastor Chris Okafor, has called out popular Pastor/Politician Tunde Bakare for not speaking out against the hardship and bad governance in the country.
According to Pastor Chris Okafor, Tunde Bakare who was once President Buhari’s running mate, spearheaded the Save Nigeria protest against ex-President Goodluck Jonathan over some poorly calculated decisions his administration took. He further disclosed that most Pastors can’t speak out against the Government because of what they are benefiting from the administration.
Chris Okafor, who said Pastor Tunde Bakare should be ashamed of himself, disclosed that Nigeria needs to be saved now more than ever.

However recall that recently, Pastor Tunde Bakare, in his open letter, condemned President Muhammadu Bubari for not reacting swiftly to the crisis created by Fulani herdsmen across the country.
The cleric said Buhari’s government failed in the area of security, a situation which had permitted a genocide in some parts of the country.
In the statement, the former presidential running mate to Buhari said the president and his government did nothing about the genocide in Benue despite being warned 18 months earlier.
According to Bakare, “Nothing indicts the current government greater than its failure in one key performance area that ought to be its strength: security.
“Despite recent setbacks, we acknowledge the gains in the war against Boko Haram, but highly disturbing is the mayhem being continually unleashed by herdsmen on communities in different states across the country, including Benue, Taraba, Plateau, Adamawa, Kaduna, Enugu, Edo and Ogun States, leaving trails of weeping and wailing.
“The recent killings in Benue State are akin to the last straw that is set to break the camel’s back. Not only has the government failed to stop these killings across the country, it has done so against the backdrop of conspiratorial silence, choosing rather to label such attacks ‘an issue of communal misunderstanding’, as the Inspector General of Police recently did in respect of the Benue attacks; it has treated the menace with kid gloves even after the Global Terrorism Index 2015 described ‘militant’ herdsmen as ‘the fourth most deadly group of 2014’.
“Worse still, some of these killings have reportedly been carried out in collusion with the military.”
