Emi lo kan Politics is bad, It is a politics of Entitlement – Pastor Tunde Bakare

The Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church and former presidential aspirant, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has slammed ‘Emi Lo kan’ Politics. Says it is bad. While preaching on Sunday via a television broadcast He said,

“Politics of entitlement. This is the ‘emi lo kan’ kind of politics that insists on one’s turn, even if circumstances do not align, is bad.”

“Politics of entitlement also manifests as perennial candidacy, not with the intent to serve, but to gratify long personal ambitions. It could also manifest as insistence on a given political office as a reward for what one considers a lifetime of sacrifice to the nation.”

“Politicians with a sense of entitlement evade political debates and do not consider it imperative to communicate with the electorate. Entitlement politics will breed an imperial presidency that is distant from the people and has no sense of responsibility or accountability to the people. Such imperial governance will slide towards dictatorship and will be intolerant of dissent.”

“Good politics, good governance, fellow Nigerians, having completed our analysis of bad politics and the bad governance it outputs, let us now take a look at good politics and its output of good governance. Good politics is pragmatic politics in the interest of the people.”

The slogan, ‘Emi lo kan’ is a Yoruba phrase meaning, “It’s my turn” first said by the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, in Ogun State, in the build up to the primary election of the party. And that has been his slogan.

No gunman or unknown gunmen or what is it called can stop the election. We have continued to carry out various operations and we will continue to carry it out.
