IBB: Pastor Bakare Blacklists Dokpesi’s AIT


The convener of the Save Nigeria Group and serving overseer of
The Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare has blacklisted
Africa Independent Television, AIT, from airing one of the church’s
very important events.

He made the announcement during his sermon at his church in
Lagos, Nigeria, yesterday.

Pastor Bakare said the television station, which has been
broadcasting his yearly State of the Nation address every October,
will not air the live telecast this year.

Although he did not explain the reason for dumping AIT for another
TV station, which he is yet to mention, many members of the church
believe the action may not be unconnected with the appointment of
the owner of the TV station, Raymond Dokpesi, as the Campaign
Director for General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (retd) for the
2011 presidential election.

Bakare, who had earlier vowed that Nigerians would never allow
Babangida to return to power, said though other aspirants have
signified their interest to contest, it was certain that IBB would never
enjoy the support of members of his church and the vast majority of
Nigerians. He had earlier asked Nigerians to vote for IBB with stones.

He also announced yesterday that the Save Nigeria Group, SNG,
had started sensitising Nigerians on the need to register and ensure
that they vote during the elections and make sure their votes count.

According to him, Nigerians cannot afford to be complacent
anymore. And as such they must participate actively in the electoral
process so that the current looters in government would be voted
out in 2011.

He said SNG would embark on the sensitisation campaign in all the
six geopolitical zones in the country, adding that his church would
fast and pray on 24 and 25 September for Nigeria in order to have
free, fair and credible elections next year.

Bakare said Nigeria would be saved, changed and the country would
be great again after credible leaders had been voted into power.
