2023: I’ll run according to rules, Tunde Bakare assures Nigerians

The Pastor of the Citadel Global Community Church, Tunde Bakare, on Wednesday, assured his supporters that he will pick the presidential ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The clergyman had last week purchased the N100m expression of interest and nomination forms of the ruling party, joining over 20 others who had already procured the forms.

During his Monday’s declaration for the 2023 presidency, the cleric also announced that his campaign would be anchored on four pillars of peace, progress, prosperity and possibility.

Bakare, who was at the International Conference Centre in Abuja on Wednesday to submit his forms, said he already envisaged himself replacing the President,  Muhammadu Buhari.

He said, “My chances are as bright as that of any other person. I am eminently qualified either by age or experience or everything that counts in this race. And I trust God that I will emerge the winner.

“Anyone who participates in a race must run according to the rules. We have fulfilled our own side; it is now for the party to set the stage and to tell us what is next.

“What I know for now is that by the grace of God, we have decided to run according to the rules and we expect to win.”
