Buhari said fuel will now be sold at N161 per liter in Nigeria, noting that other nations such as Ghana, Niger, Chad, Saudi Arabia and other oil-producing countries sell petrol on a higher prices than Nigeria.
this is his reason for raising the price of fuel in the country.
The General Overseer of Citadel Global Community Church, Tunde Bakare has stated that we are in a nation where the blind leads the seeing.
He made this known at an annual conference, The Platform, organised by Covenant Christian Centre in Lagos, on Thursday.
Speaking at the virtual event hosted by Poju Oyemade to commemorate the nation’s 60th independence anniversary, Bakare said no nation can make considerable progress when mediocre people are at its helm of affairs.
According to him, there was a need to ensure that the right people are in positions of leadership in order to put the country on the right track.
“If you compare our performance with the nations that began this journey with us — nations like Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and South Korea — they’ve left us behind. We are still in the woods and are yet to come out,” he said.
“We thank God we are still a nation and we trust God that as we dialogue this afternoon and others bring their ideas to the table, those that are leading us will begin to put the best of us in strategic positions to move our nation forward.
“No nation anywhere can survive or embark on predictable progress when mediocres are in charge.
“I’m not sure and I’m not limiting the Almighty and I hope this will not be seen as blasphemy; I’m not sure the Bible contemplates Nigerian leadership, because the Bible says when the blind leads the blind, they all end up in a ditch. But we’re in a nation where the blind leads the seeing.”
When asked what could be done to address the challenges bedevilling the country, he explained that there was a need for a change of orientation.
“I think we put the cart before the horse and whenever you put the cart before the horse, there is motion backward. We need to put the horse before the cart. We need urgent national redemption and until that takes place, we are just wasting our time,” he said
Bakare also berated President Muhammadu Buhari for failing to deliver on his campaign promises.
“The present government led by President Muhammadu Buhari announced three critical things as their focus or agenda as they were coming into power: security, diversified economy and fight against corruption,” he said.
“If you look at the security archictecture, you will know something is wrong when our soldiers from the battle line are releasing videos of ‘we’re tired.’
“When he took the mantle of leadership and he relocated as it were, he took the power base of the military to the war front and we all had a sigh of relief that something was going to happen, but today, there’s so much bloodletting and bloodshed. I’m not sure we have really won the battle against terrorism in our country.”
On why he has not led a protest against the recent fuel subsidy removal as he did during the previous administration under Goodluck Jonathan, he said the protest at the time was for the “voiceless”.
The President has sparked outrage on social media following a restriction of the comment section, limiting citizens to interact with Buhari’s speech.
President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier share a post via the microblogging platform, Twitter, on the commissioning of the standard gauge railway line from Itakpe to Warri via the steel town complex of Ajaokuta.
However, interacting under the tweet is limited to ‘only’ those allowed by the media publicity in charge of the president’s official Twitter page making it impossible for Nigerians to share their thoughts on the project.
This left citizens of the country with mixed reactions and a reason to question their right to publicly interact with the President of their dear nation, Nigeria.
While some kicked against the decision to lock the comment section, others pointed out that the presidency opted for the decision to lock the comment section because Nigerians have in recent times spammed the comment section of any of President Buhari’s tweets with ”I follow back”, ”Please Follow back”.
