Some of Buhari’s political associates are nothing but ‘Ali Baba and 40 thieves’ – Bakare


General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has warned the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, to be careful in choosing members of his cabinet.

Speaking at the 26th anniversary of his church, tagged, ‘Democracy audit: chances, choices and consequences,’ Bakare stressed that the wasted years in Nigeria can only be restored if Buhari surrounds himself with men and women of goodwill, great intellectual capacity, competence and character.

“I pray sincerely that not all those who facilitated his winning the election will be among those who run the government. I did say before the election that I trust the person of General Buhari but not all those around him.

“I mean every word of it because many of them are nothing but Ali Baba and 40 thieves. And if these are the same who would go into government, you can’t fight evil with evil. You can as well kiss the anti-corruption stance of Mr. President-elect goodbye,” the pastor said.

However, he prayed for Buhari to have the needed wisdom and strength to choose the right people as people are already submitting applications to him to serve in the incoming administration.

“The vultures are now going round and round. If he does not have quality people around him, then they will put round pegs in square holes and within two years, we are back to square one.”
