Pastor Tunde Bakare, the overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, has called for a spiritual solution to the nation’s problems, adding that the Federal Government is helpless.

He said this at a prayer session held in his church for the nation.

Bakare said “I need to call your attention to the comments made by my brother and governor of Kaduna State, Nasir el-Rufai, who said Nigeria had sunk deeper than any human being can redeem. If the people in government, who promised us change can say this, where does our hope lie?

“So, you can begin to wonder where the nation is heading towards. The Peoples Democratic Party couldn’t do it. The people who promised change have started saying the nation’s problems are deeper than human beings could solve. Who do you turn to to solve our problems?

“What they are saying is that we should turn to God to solve our problems. What we know is that Nigeria will work in our own time.”

According to Punch Newspapers, Bakare also criticised the present administration for not taking the issue of the kidnapped Chibok girls seriously.

Pastor Tunde Bakare is an outspoken preacher whose comments on national issues have sparked soul searching discussions among the political class.
