The Serving Overseer of Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has berated those he described as 2023 presidential ‘hope-fools,’ saying they cannot succeed because they have stolen what belongs to the people.

He warns that persons living in highbrow Bourdillon, Ikoyi, Lagos, feeding fat on public funds and flying around in private jets will one day be made to vomit the funds they have stolen.

He subsequently lambasted the Lagos State Government for failing to fix the roads in the state since 1999.

Bakare said this during a sermon at the Latter Rain Assembly on Sunday, The Cable reports.

The firebrand cleric lamented the poor state of roads in Lagos State, adding that such “selfish people” have failed to impact positively on the lives of the people.

The activist-pastor said rather than treat such people as the thieves that they are, some would rather say “he is a thief but he is generous.”

He said, “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, Nigerian people, you celebrate your villains and crucify your heroes.”

Speaking about the floods in Lagos, the convener of the Save Nigeria Group added that the government had not done right by the people.

Bakare added, “You’re complaining about the flood. Since 1999, the condition of this road for 30 years now since I’ve been here has remained the same. They’ll do patch-patch, join-join until the rain comes and reveals 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 belongs 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 betide the government that does not know that the purpose of government is the welfare of the people.”
