Senior Pastor of the Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare has said government officials in Nigeria have made corruption official.

Bakare, who said Nigeria was seen as a corrupt nation during the military era, added that it has not changed during the Buhari led administration.

He said “Despite the emergence of a new government on the heels of a strong anti-corruption campaign, despite the credence lent to this anti-corruption promise by the antecedents of President Muhammadu Buhari, and despite global acknowledgment that Nigeria has taken shovel loads off the peak of this mountain of filth.”

Adding that “For instance, given the unbridled looting of the treasury at the time, reportedly to the tune of over 1billion dollars as was subsequently uncovered following the exit of the military, it was obvious that the abnormal had become the norm, the illegal had become legal, the outrageous had become banal and the aberrant had become the gold standard.”

Pastor Tunde Bakare also called for a spiritual solution to the nation’s problems, adding that the Federal Government is helpless.
