The Serving Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to tell the national security operatives to rescue the Chibok girls from their abductors or sack its leadership if not capable of discharging their duties.
Bakare, who stated this during Sunday’s thanksgiving service in his Lagos church, said this should be achieved in record time “whatever means they have to use, either by flying continuously over Sambisa forest, we should do it until we locate them.”
He frowned on the level of work done thus far on the search of the missing girls, blaming the security operatives of not doing enough to rescue the girls from the Boko Haram terrorists who had since claimed to have the girls in their custody. Bakare charged President Buhari to review his intelligence network if not capable of rising to the challenges of his office. “If the DSS head is not doing the right thing, he should be changed,” Bakare said.
“How can we as a nation not know where the Chibok girls are?” Bakare asked rhetorically, saying: “Let us as a nation learn how to put a round peg in a round hole.” Commenting on President Buhari’s sincerity as the country’s leader, Bakare said: “I told my wife, this is the first time we have a president that will be very sincere and precise about what is happening, but I said we need more than sincerity.
“How many of you watched the media chat, you will see that the president was sincere with the state of the nation, but we need more than sincerity. “Even, if the DSS head is from Daura or anywhere, if he is not performing, let us get somebody who will do the right thing. If these girls are daughters of the politicians, do you think we wouldn’t have located them?”
Bakare said it was unacceptable to give up the girls, advising that a special task force should be set up to specifically rescue the girls wherever they are and if the head of the intelligence agencies fails to carry out the assignment, they should be sacked.
