General overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare has also weighed in on the visit of Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar to the United States.
Speaking his church at Ogba, Lagos on Sunday, the pastor said that Atiku’s US trip had no significance to Nigeria’s challenges. He noted that both the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC and the PDP “are busy chasing shadows.”
“what has going to America got to do with the challenges that we face? On both sides, they are busy chasing shadows”.
According should now focus on the real issues, now that he is back from America – having proven his accusers wrong.
In his words:
“We welcome the Wazirin of Adamawa, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar from the United States of America. We sincerely hope that now that he is back, now that the real issues are no longer who can go to America and return, he would face the real issues of our polity.
“How does that become an issue? Can he go to America, can he not go? What is the issue there, that it became frontpage of the tabloid? So what after you have come back?
“And then the opposition keep saying he can’t go, he can’t go, now he has gone; there is nothing as embarrassing than when he does something you say is impossible.
