Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly, on Sunday spoke about Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s leaked memo to President Muhammadu Buhari.
During his sermon on Sunday Bakare said “I can never deny that I knew about the memo; I knew about it. I flew from Lagos to meet El-Rufai in Abuja to discuss the contents with President Buhari. There were just three of us at the meeting.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state had earlier confirmed the authenticity of the memo he wrote to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Mr. El-Rufai had said in his memo that many Nigerians were not happy with the APC administration of Mr. Buhari.
He said it was partly because the president had surrounded himself with “clueless” and inexperience persons, such as his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal.
“The memo was an assessment of what was going on; where mistakes had been made and things were not going on well; and what could be done to move the country forward”, Pastor Bakare said.
“It was not an attack on anybody or on the President but some sons of disobedience around President Buhari leaked the memo to Sahara Reporters to make it look as if it was meant to attack the President for their own selfish interests.
“Can you imagine that the memo was written in September last year and some people think that they could gain from that? Woe betide anyone who thinks he can further his interests by manipulating anything in this era.”
