Three Major Things Tunde Bakare Said After Meeting With Buhari At The Presidential Villa (Photos)

The founder of Citadel Global Community church, Pastor Tunde Bakare on Friday met with president Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa.

After the meeting, the clergyman spoke with State House Correspondents and expressed his views regarding some issues.

This article will take a look at three major things he said after the meeting.

1. Pastor Tunde Bakare noted that the kind of president the country needs at the moment is the one that can drive the nation to 'Eldorado'.

2. Tunde Bakare also appreciated the Nigerian Senate for consenting to the electronic transmission of results, saying beyond that, the country should also adopt electronic voting.

3. Lastly, when the clergyman was asked whether he would contest in 2023, he said he will do so only if God and Nigerians want him to.

Pastor Tunde Bakare was Buhari's running mate in 2011 under the platform of the Congress for Progressives Change (CPC). Muhammadu Buhari was defeated in the election by former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

Pastor Tunde Bakare was right to call for the adoption of electronic voting in the country. There are a lot of people who are disenfranchised in the society today simply because they are not chanced to go to polling units during elections.

However, if electronic voting is adopted in the country, voting exercise will be more easier for people. It will be wonderful and it will also enhance our democracy.

What do you have to say about this? Do you think Nigeria should adopt electronic voting? Please share your views with us.
