Pastor Tunde Bakare, of the Latter Rain Assembly  has said that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari can only be described as ‘helpless’ not ‘clueless’ and that  what Nigerians should do is support the administration and give it more time so that it can fulfill all the campaign promises made to the people.

Speaking on Channels television,  on Sunday, Bakare said that the Buhari’s government fight against insurgency lead to the  appointed new service chiefs and cooperation from African countries .

“President Buhari’s administration is not clueless but helpless on the issue of insecurity. He met with neighbouring countries, changed service chiefs and formed ties with the leaders of the Western nations to seek their support in tackling insurgency. That is why we must all rise up to support his administration.”

He went on to say that “Buhari took his time to choose the ministers. If anyone says they are not the best or competent, the person should tell me the charges against them in court. Are those nominated competent? Are they Nigerians? I know that there is federal character. If you don’t have those you want, you pick those available. The President has said not all of them will have portfolios. If our constitution says we must have 36 ministers and we don’t have the resources to pay them, it is time to change that constitution.”

See the case of Rotimi Amaechi with all the battles he fought with the past administration. I do not also see any horse-trading in their screening and confirmation by the Senate.”
