The Leader of Save Nigeria Group, Pastor Tunde Bakare has criticised the presidency for giving him a cow as Christmas gift.
The presiding pastor of the Latter Rain Church makes mockery of the gift while addressing his congregation on Sunday, noting that he did not solicit for the cow and would have returned it but for the persuasion from the presidency.
He added that the cost of the cow would have been inflated to the gain of the cronies of the president and that he will not be surprise if an elephant is given out by the presidency, insinuating that it amount to a waste of resources, misplaced priorities and a testament that the country has ‘low men’ in high places.
“I had a cow from the Presidency. I didn’t ask for it. They dropped it at the Save Nigeria Group office,” he said. He queried, “Is it cow that we need? If you check their books, one cow could have been bought for $5,000.
The rest of the money is pocketed. They prevailed on me not to return it.
“We are the cause of our problems. We feel big when Mr President sends us hampers; some go to them for contracts”.
