SNG not against Jonathan but bad governance, corruption, says Pastor Bakare

Pastor Tunde Bakare, the Convener of the Save Nigeria Group (SNG), said on Sunday that the group was not against President Goodluck Jonathan but bad governance and corruption.

Briefing journalists in Ikeja, Mr. Bakare said the group was against the misappropriation of state funds, embezzlement and whoever does any of such and similar things.
He said that the messages he preached at the Later Rain Assembly Church were only in favour of righteousness, justice and truth.
“There are threats against me and am being asked to tone down my messages. There is nothing anyone can do against the truth.
“I will continue my preaching until Nigeria is liberated from all ills,” Mr. Bakare said.
He said that his messages were being perceived as partisan.
“By definition, partisanship is someone who actively supports a party, cause or principle.
“By that definition, everyone should support a cause because if you don’t stand for anything, you will fall for everything.
“I will never compromise the truth; I have principles I stand for and the nation’s situation is offensive to me.
“I refuse to be intimidated by arrests. I cannot tone down my messages because of perceived partisanship,” he said.
Mr. Bakare urged the congregation never to compromise on the truth.
Yinka Odumakin, the SNG’s Spokesman and Dr Okei Odumakin, the President of the Campaign for Democracy, also attended the briefing.
