Presiding Pastor of Latter Rain Assembly, Dr. Tunde Bakare, has advocated that the country should return to true federalism to ensure devolution of powers to the component units and ensure their development.
According to him, if Nigeria does not opt for true federalism, the country will be merely be wasting time.
Bakare spoke on Saturday in a speech he delivered at the 14th anniversary of Foursquare Gospel Church, Asokoro, Abuja.
He argued that the prevailing situation had led to over concentration of power and economic resources at the centre.
“The truth must be told, what we need are strong federating units but not a powerful centre. Let every federating unit develop at its pace,”he said.
The cleric also spoke on the ongoing war against corruption in the country, saying the situation had become so bad that even clerics, who should teach morals, were now involved in graft.
Also speaking, Senior Pastor of Foursquare Gospel Church, Asokoro, Babajide Olowodola, stated that what the church had been doing was to make sure that “we are not part of the problem, but working hard to ensure that we bring solutions to the country’s economic problems.”
