"My PVC This Time Is For A Better Nigeria" - Pastor Tunde Bakare

Oduduwa hall of Obafemi Awolowo University was the place to be on Wednesday 28th January 2015 as Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter rain Assembly spoke on the topic; Nigeria beyond 2015 in a lecture hosted by the Angola Hall Executives in collaboration with the Students' Union.

Pastor Tunde Bakare who was the running mate of General Muhammadu Buhari in the 2011 Presidential Elections under the umbrella of the then CPC said that even though it was expected of him to be loyal to the General, his PVC this time is for a better Nigeria. He also listed a few power blocs which influenced the elections in Nigeria some of which included The Past Leaders, Traditional rulers, Governors just to mention a few. He ultimately mentioned the strongest power block which he called the people power bloc urging the students and everybody present to participate in the forthcoming elections as they were the future of the country.
The Pastor gave quite a number of reasons why 2015 was an important year for Nigeria one of which is the fact that 2015 is Nigeria’s first post centenary year and there had been speculations that Nigeria was just an experiment of Lord Lugard with a time frame of 100 years. Based on this speculation the International community was carefully waiting to see result of Lord Lugard’s experiment. Another reason was the February elections which he said was a defining moment for Nigeria as the results could be the beginning of the change we had been waiting for or a big step towards the opposite.

Some of the other dignitaries who also spoke at the event was Yinka Odumakin, a one-time PRO of Great Ife Students Union and Student Activist, Comrade Ola Diamond, Comrade Christian Love, the hall Warden of Angola Hall, Mr Kuku. Awards were also presented to Pastor Tunde Bakare and Yinka Odumakin for their contributions to the development of the Country.
