Pastor Tunde Bakare, Founder and Senior Pastor of Latter Rain Assembly has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari’s government for comparing Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) with Afenifere and Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
Bakare, during a sermon in his Ogba-Ikeja church, said that;
“It is shameful for anyone to compare Miyetti Allah with Afenifere. Such person cannot be in his right senses to think that Miyetti Allah and Afenifere and Ohanaeze are the same.”
“How can a group that has been rated as the fourth most deadly group in the world by the United Nations, a group of terrorists, be the same as Afenifere? How can a group that kills people, rapes women, destroys houses be on the same scale as Afenifere? Do Afenifere members carry weapons?”
“And to show the true colour of the person doing the comparison, he left out the ACF from his comparison as if that one is above everybody else.”
“If you have to put Afenifere and Ohanaeze on the same scale as Miyetti Allah, why did you exclude the ACF? Is it not to tell everyone that the ACF is superior to other groups in the country?”
For those who don’t know, the president’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, had stated that the Presidency would continue to engage groups such as the Miyetti Allah, Afenifere and Ohanaeze Ndigbo in dialogue as part of the search for solutions and peace in the country.
