War Of Words: Okorocha Drags Bakare| READ DETAILS

Federal lawmaker and ex- governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has dragged Pastor Tunde Bakare, the General Overseer of Citadel Global Community Church, in a war of words ahead of the brewing 2023 elections.

Clergyman, Tunde Bakare while weighing in on the issue of zoning in the wake of 2023’s deciding moment, took a swipe at the Igbos.

The cleric cum politician insisted the quest for a President of Igbo extraction would only be a dead end as the Igbos were a ”cursed people”.

Reacting, Okorocha who represents the Imo West Senatorial district at the 9th Senate, launched an onslaught on Bakare, refuting his views about the Igbo clan.

During a visit by the All Progressives Congress National Youth Leader, Dayo Israel to his Unity House Campaign office in Abuja, the outspoken politician stressed that the Igbos remain an asset to Nigeria as they could be found thriving everywhere.

Debunking Bakare’s claim that the first Prime Minister of Nigeria, Tafawa Balewa, cursed the Igbos before he was killed in the 1996 coup, Okorocha went on to state he would ”remove the curse”.

Why should anyone in this country say the Igbo man cannot be president of Nigeria? I was at Imo State and I told them the reason why the Igbo cannot rule Nigeria and I want to remove the curse today.

Do you know what happened? The day Tafawa Balewa was killed, they removed his turban, poured wine on his head, forced him to drink, and shot him. In the process, he cursed them saying, ‘none of your tribe will ever rule Nigeria.

I want to break the curse today because this generation of Igbos was not part of those people. By the authority of God’s word, I reverse the curse of Tafawa Balewa over the Igbo generation. Henceforth, the Igbo’s will have access to the throne like any other Nigerian”.

When I listened to Bakare mention that the Igbos are cursed in the cause of his preaching, I think that is an overstatement and unwarranted preaching. I must state here categorically that Igbos are not cursed and they will never be cursed.

They are peaceful and blessed Nigerians who are found in every nook and cranny of this country. They may not be good politicians, because of the kind of politics we play in Nigeria, but definitely, they are not cursed. Igbos are a great asset to this country. They are not the problem.”

Meanwhile, Bakare’s statement was captured in a viral video.
