Bakare slams govt for neglecting masses…says woe betides such govt.
The founder and serving overseer of Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare has taken a swipe on government for neglecting the masses and not attending to the welfare of the people.
Bakare in a sermon on Sunday October 27 monitored by The Cable said “Woe betides the government that does not know that the purpose of government is the welfare of the people.”
He was particularly miffed by the neglect of roads while also making a scathing remark about “2023 presidential hope-fools”
He expressed worry why people will continue to praise those who stole from them because the person is generous pointing out that, that a truly generous man is a man who “devises generous things, and by generosity, he shall stand”.
He said, “The eyes of those who see will not be dim. The ears of those who hear will listen. Also, the heart of the rash will understand knowledge and the tongue of the stammerers will be ready to speak plainly,”
“The foolish person would no longer be called generous. You can say ‘so so and so’ has stolen all the money in the state, but he is a very generous man, you are foolish.
“That’s why potholes are killing you, that’s what pools of water… you can’t drive now anymore because what is meant for road has been stolen since democracy began, they are living larger than life having jets here, having jets there, having house in Bourdillon, having house in this place, having house in that place, having house in every place at the expense of the public.
“You will not go without vomiting what you have stolen. Wait, and see. Because a king will reign in righteousness and princes will rule with justice. Unfortunately, Nigeria people, you celebrate your villains and crucify your heroes.”
Commenting on the flood situation in Lagos he said, “You’re complaining about Flood. Since 1999 the condition of this road for 30 years now since I’ve been here has remained the same. (The road by his church) They’ll do patch-patch, join-join, until rain comes and reveal that they have not been right with the people,”
“And you think your children will stand shoulder high above the perversity you have created? I see the race to 2023, congratulations Presidential ‘hope-fools’. You cannot, you have stolen what belong to all.
“You can tell the man, he is a very generous man, he would pay for your hospital bill. Because he didn’t build hospitals. The foolish person will no longer be called generous.
“Woe betides the government that does not know that the purpose of government is the welfare of the people.”
