$2.1bn arms deal: Tunde Bakare calls for the sack of CBN governor

Popular Lagos pastor, Tunde Bakare who ran with President Buhari in the 2011 presidential election, has called for the sack of the Central Bank of Nigeria governor, Godwin Emefiele for his alleged role in the disbursement of the $2.1 billion arms deal fraud.

Tunde Bakare said this during his state of the nation address yesterday January 10th. He said;

"The CBN currently contributes negatively to the Nigerian state in more ways than one. Firstly, the CBN has become a conduit for politicians to drain the nation. Otherwise, how can a letter of barely two paragraphs, addressed to the current CBN Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, by the then NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), become the authority to incur expenditure leading to cash flow of $37m and several million euros? In decent climes, the CBN governor cannot continue in office while the NSA is accounting for his alleged offences” he said
Bakare said the current administration will record little or no success if the system of governance is not totally restructured
"Without restructuring, this administration may achieve little or no significant and sustainable success" he said
Bakare says his love for Nigeria has propelled him to always speak out and that all he has ever done for any government was without any monetary value or any gift that could mar his character
"Let me state for prosterity under God that I am not an agent of any individual and up till today, whatever I have done for any government, past or present, publicly or behind the scene I have done pro-bono. Never collected money from anyone nor any serious gift that could mar our character"he said

Sometimes, when men of God speak in such manner, you begin to wonder, are you sure.. i hope he looked very well whom the letter was addressed to. let's assume as a finance Director in your office, the CEO asked that certain amount be transferred for a course, what do you do. don't forget that this monies were meant for Arms against insurgency. is the CBN Governor supposed to monitor how it is purchased and deployed? Bakare, please give us a break. Is the CBN governor supposed to go and buy the arms when he is not in the Military or is he supposed to say Okonjo or Mr President I will not release the Money; and someone will still say, he is hampering the war against Terrorism. Tunde Bakare, if you were the one what will you do?

God bless you sir.
At least you are doing your best to see a Nigeria that works.
For a pastor of your caliber to come on a national TV to say you hv not collected money for any government speaks volumes about your character. I don't have to doubt you because you are one of the very few that answered the national call via confab that said you won't collect money that was meant for every participants.

Don't worry about what people say about you. It's your destiny, if man don't reward you, God in heaven will.

The racket had been going on for a long time. People need to note that we have been exposed to one letter of withdrawal of money. No one knows how many of such letters are issued o'er day, o'er week or o'er annum.

Our situation is extremely pathetic. People forget how Sanusi the former CBN governor single handedly awarded contracts and the fury it raised. This CBN Governor had done far more harm to our economy than any oast Governor. He assumed duty when the exchange rate was N159 to $1.00. Now it is N270. No one is asking him any questions. He is selfish and untrustworthy. He should have resigned or been fired. No one is asking questions ir probing him.

Pastor Bakare is right and he is one of the few Nigerians that can be relied upon to tell the truth no matter whose ox is gored.

Goodluck Jonathan, Okonjo Iweala, Col Dasuki, Godwin Emefiele should face an international probe for accountability and ethics while in public office. No one should honor or give them any awards for the pains and losses they caused their country

This is one pastor known to stand for the truth. i can recall how Pastor Bakare prophesied the sack of Emir Dasuki during Abacha era and it came to past.How his teachings changed some moneybags pastors to repentence. We dont have many of him.Our dear CBN governor knows that his days are numbered and even wondered why himself is still there.He was brought in to be used by Pres. Jonathan and has been used. IF you are WISE,you will support the truth.Really rear to come by with africans.We love and promote tribalism,nepotism and mediocrity. The Lord will help and heal our lands.BE WISE!!!

Anonymous said...

In the very first instance this appointment was not the best that Goodluck Jonathan should have made in national interest. Zenith Bank from which Emefieke was appointed has never been a patriotic bank in Nigeria. They offer only loans in excess of N500 million. They do not support SME loans. They are specialists in foreign exchange round tripping. This act of compromise was anticipated right from day one. Jonathan has been dragged low and more exposures are coming. Buhari is shielding Jonathan just because of the last minute Jonathan congratulatory phone call that prevented chaos. But then Jonathan must enter the dock to testify either as a prosecution witness or as an accused. Okonjo Iweala must be stripped of all national honors for unethical collaboration and for misguiding the President. She must enter the dock, then let her whistle and expose all the rest of the collaborators. Until Buhari probes the CBN the can of worms in the financial sector will remain hidden and continue to suck the economy

It's evident that all those condemning Pastor Tunde Bakare are sponsored agents of the CBN Governor. They are busy insulting the personality of the Pastor and not addressing his comments. In a sane nation, the CBN Governor should have resigned long ago. Emefiele is not a man of integrity. He should by now submit himself to the security authorities to show the extent of his involvement in the whole arm's deal.For God's sake let Buhari sack him without any further delay. With that, any other Governor will sit up, knowing that he is duty bound to defend the nation and not betray the people of Nigeria that is paying him salary through the commonwealth of the nation.

Sola Oyeniyi said...

It's funny at times when Christians say their fellow Christians should not be involved in politics! But let me just drop this here, my bible tells me that Joseph went from prison to become prime minister of Egypt after God gave him the required revelation which Potiphar neeeded at that time. Daniel was a governor in Babylon, a strange land in which he was taken into captivity. Except ofcourse, prime minister and governor are no longer political offices; then my argument becomes irrelevant. Have a good day guys.

Zekiel said...

Well, for those who have insulted the man of God, I pray God forgives you. Regarding him running for vice presidency, the Bible didnt say anything wrong about that. In fact, in Israel, prophets were the ones who ran the government indirectly, so as christians, you are not to abscond from politics, you are to initiate the change you wanna see. If when you get there, you are not making the change, rather, it is making you more corrupt, then you better flee.

As for those who think Godwin Emefiele had no choice because the order was from a superior, as the CBN Governor, you have the right to be convinced of the genuine reason why money is sought before you release it, if you are ordered and you know, corruption is around the corner, you could have resigned to uphold your integrity. I love the CBN governor, but sincerely, what Pastor Tunde Bakare said is the FACT, the CBN governor has a fault in that area too. The CBN is supposed to be totally independent from the Government. You could ask US Fed how it is run. Yes, the President appoints the Chairman of the Fed, but he cannot just remove him/her, and he cannot influence their decision in any way. That is why the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) of the US, an equivalent of Nigeria's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC), is regarded by many as the committee of the most powerful people in the world. They can direct US monetary policy anyhowthey like and that will surely affect the world economy.

So please, lets be factual and stop talking anyhow to men of God for you do not know what they carry, no matter what has been charged against them, it doesnt stop the fact that they are men of God. I hope you would have a change of perception.
