I Had A Cow From The Presidency; I Didn’t Ask For It, Bakare Scoffs

Tunde Bakare

The convener of the Save Nigeria Group, Pastor Tunde Bakare has thrown the presidency’s kindness back at its face as he berated the presidency for giving him a cow as Christmas gift.

The presiding pastor of the Latter Rain Church and a frontline critic of the Jonathan’s administration makes mockery of the gift while addressing his congregation on Sunday, noting that he did not solicit for the cow and would have returned it but for the persuasion from the presidency.

According to him, the cost of the cow would have been inflated to the gain of the cronies of the president, adding that he will not be surprised if an elephant is given out by the presidency, insinuating that it amount to a waste of resources, misplaced priorities and a testament that the country has ‘low men’ in high places.

“I had a cow from the Presidency. I didn’t ask for it. They dropped it at the Save Nigeria Group office,” he said. He queried,

“Is it cow that we need? If you check their books, one cow could have been bought for $5,000. The rest of the money is pocketed. They prevailed on me not to return it. Thanks for the cow, but no thanks”.

He joked that his revelation might deny him a gift from President Goodluck Jonathan in 2014, “that means no cow for me next year (laughs). But we will have good roads, schools etc. We are the cause of our problems. We feel big when Mr President sends us hampers; some go to them for contracts”.

Counseling the presidency to channel such resources to build roads, hospitals and provide other social amenities for the masses, Bakare claimed that he will also give out the cow.

  • Hon Collins, are u really a honourable man?
    He should thank the president? For what? For a cow that will probably last a few days? When this man is telling you he’ll have preferred good road, more standard hospitals and less corruptions?… I can only begin to imagine how much cheaply u sold your votes last election.

  • Collins have shown us that we are the perpetrators of evil leaders in government.
    Bakare is speaking good concerning the welfare of the people of the nation but Collins is interested in ‘chop clean mouth’ corruption of our ‘leaders’ or rather ‘Dealers’.
    We should feel sory for Collins!
