President Jonathan should just quit power - Pastor Bakare

The Serving Overseer of
the Latter Rain Assembly
and Convener of the
Save Nigeria Group,
Pastor Tunde Bakare
today asked President
Goodluck Jonathan to quit power honourably
or be disgraced out of Aso Rock.
He made the pronouncement in a speech he read
in his packed church in Lagos, southwest Nigeria.
He titled the speech: How To Change Government
Peacefully And Make Society Better.
He said he was calling on Jonathan to resign
because he is too ill-equipped to rule the country
and that the problems of the country have
overwhelmed him.
“In spite of the president’s promises to deal with
insecurity head-on, this government appears
helpless because it cannot see the linkage
between corruption and violence,” he said.
Pastor Bakare, who quoted the scriptures

to prophetic revolutions and how God enthroned
kings and disgraced out of power those that failed
to keep His precepts and rule properly, decried

In the speech, which had four major headings:
Who Really Rules in the Affairs of Men; The
Purpose of Government in a Nation; How to
Change Government in a Peaceful Manner; and
The Way Forward, he also listed four factors that
could lead to change in the leadearship of the
country in the foreseeable future.
The pastor listed the Unquestionable God Factor,
Resignation, Impeachment and the People’s
Revolt as some of the options open to Jonathan.
Out of these options, he said the immediate one
is resignation which, according to him, “is not a
sign of weakness– it is a sign of patriotic
truthfulness. It is giving opportunity to those who
can do a better job in the interest of a nation to
carry on with nation-building where the exiting
leader stops.”
Bakare added that there will be change of
leadership in the country before 2015, saying
there will be a free and fair election before that
