Written by Adewale Adeyemi on January 16, 2023
Ahead of the presidential elections holding next month across the country, the Serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has warned Nigerians to avoid politicians with a sense of entitlement.
Bakare gave this counsel while speaking at his State of the Nation Address which took place during service at his church in Oregun, Lagos, even as he also charged Nigerians to reject vote buyers in the 2023 election and called for the entrenchment of good politics which focuses on issues of development.
Tribune online reports that the cleric, while offering the counsel, warned that politics of entitlement, which he referred to in his speech as “Emi lokan type of politics,” manifests among perennial candidacy, not with the intent to serve, but to gratify long-term personal ambitions, declaring that Nigerian presidency was not a reward for anyone’s lifetime of sacrifice to the nation.
