Senior Pastor of the Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare, and former running mate of President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the President is on a sure path of recovery.
Bakare, who disclosed this on Sunday during a press conference after his Sunday morning sermon titled, ‘The birth pangs of a new Nigeria’ also said the circumstances of Nigeria’s polity has led to the choice of elderly presidents.
“If you want to know whether the President (Muhammadu Buhari) is getting better (and) recovering, I said in the course of that message – he’s on the sure path to recovery. Give him time. Niger Republic has not seen their president for a while.
“Nigeria needs an energetic leader but the circumstances of our polity have brought us to where we are that the same country that the likes of (Yakubu) Godwin ruled at the age of 30 is now considering people in their 60s and 70s to administer it.
“What happened in France recently is a clear sign that there is going to be a change of guards almost worldwide. But let’s accept our own thing and resolve our issues with wisdom.
“(Between) the man in the intensive care unit and the doctor treating him or wishing him dead, you don’t know who will die first.
“If God sent Isaiah back to go and tell Hezekiah that He was adding 15 years to his life, He is the only one who can do what He wills to do.
“Nobody should wish another person dead. We should just pray, because you would put Nigeria in disaster,” he said.
He added that the President transmitted powers to Yemi Osinbajo before traveling.
“(Buhari) had never left without transmitting that power. So, there’s no trouble (this time round),” he noted.
