The serving Overseer of Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has criticized President Muhammadu Buhari for the choice he made as regards the appointment of some of his ministers.
He was particularly pique that the minister of Budget and Planning, Udo Udoma , who is a lawyer was a wrong choice.
“ Udo Udoma is a lawyer. What experience has he gotten in economics other that federal character to earn him the ministry of budget and economic planning”, he queried.
Bakare was also miffed that there is corruption around President Buhari, adding that that was why he war tar with corruption.
Bakare said that former president Olusegun Obasanjo had the best cabinet, with the best and brightest minds from across the world, adding that Buhari has not been able to do same because of his political party.
“The allegations by the Nigerian public is that those around the president are also stealing, and some names have been mentioned. You cannot be a clean man surrounded by rogues, if you don’t deal with those rogues, they would colour you with the same tar,” Bakare added.
“Development under President Buhari Buhari has been slow because as he said, he inherited an empty treasury. For six months, he could not appoint ministers because there was no money to pay them, and little by little, thank God, oil picked up.
“But a person like Obasanjo will now attack him and say, rightly, the price of oil had fallen completely and I met an empty treasury but I didn’t give excuses, I worked.
“But the difference is this, Obasanjo assembled the best, the brightest from across the nations of the earth, economists that knew their onions, to begin to help steer the affairs of the nation, and that is less seen in this administration.”
Bakare said the difference between what Obasanjo did and what Buhari is doing is that the former did it under one party, the People Democratic Party, while Buhari is doing his under the All Progressives Congress, which he (Bakare) called a union of strange bedfellows.
