2023: Okorocha Slams Pastor Tunde Bakare For Saying Igbos Are Cursed

Former Governor of Imo State and Senator representing Imo West, Rochas Okorocha has slammed the General Overseer of Citadel Global Community Church, formerly known as Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare.

Speaking on Tuesday when the National Youth Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dayo Israel, paid him a visit, Okorocha said Bakare was wrong form saying Igbos cannot rule Nigeria, because they are under a curse.

He stated that people from the Southeast are an asset to the country.

Recall that Bakare in a viral video had claimed that an Igbo man cannot become president of the country.

“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,” Bakare had said.

However, Rochas Okorocha described Bakare’s preaching as an overstatement and unwarranted.


“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,” he said.

While admitting that Igbos are not good politicians, the former governor insisted that they are not the problem.
