Pastor Tunde Bakare of The Citadel Global Community Church received 0 votes in the recently concluded All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential primaries.
After spending N100 million on the APC nomination and expression of interest form, the senior pastor did not bother flying around to meet with party officials or national delegates in their states.
On the other hand, Bakare has promised to win the ruling party’s presidential primary in 2022 and become Nigeria’s 16th president.
According to the priest, God has promised to appoint him President Buhari’s successor.
However, during the APC primaries conducted at Eagles Square in Abuja on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, the former Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) vice presidential candidate received not a single vote.
The primary election was won by Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the former Governor of Lagos State and the APC’s National Leader.
Tinubu received 1070 votes to defeat former Transportation Minister Chibuike Amaechi, who received 238 votes. Vice President Yemi Osinbajo came in third place with 177 votes.
Other options include:
Ahmed Lawal, 102
Yahaya Bello is a 25-year-old actress.
Dave Umahi is a twenty-year-old Hawaiian male.
21-year-old Ayade, Ben
Ahmed Sani is number three.
8 votes cast in the void
Bakare said at the national convention on Tuesday night, “I respect every aspirant here, including Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”
“However, I’m not stepping down for anyone.”
“By God’s grace, I am here to run for President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as the country’s 16th president.”
