Pastor Tunde Bakare, General Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, Nigeria, has revealed what he would do if he fails to win the APC presidential ticket.
Bakare bought the N100 million APC presidential nomination and expression of interest forms on Thursday.
He said if he did not win the ticket, he would support whoever won.
“A Southerner is a Nigerian, a Northerner is a Nigerian.
“We trust God that the best, the fittest and the most competent will emerge and the one who truly loves our people, especially the poor will rise to fix our nation,’’ Bakare said.
“There is only one seat. Whoever wins, the rest of us most rise to support him to rebuild Nigeria, East, West, North or South, Nigeria is our country,’’ he stressed.
According to Bakare, “I trust God helping us with men of goodwill, East, West, North and South of the country and across party lines, male and female we will rise and rebuild our nation.
“This will be in such a way that the devastation we are experiencing, we would see it no more.
“Our programme is very simple: peace, prosperity, progress and possibilities. Upon those four pillars Nigeria will be rebuilt and the hope of many citizens will be rekindled.
“We are all going to join hands to make it happen. No other nation will fix our nation for us.’’
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Bakare was President Muhammad Buhari’s Vice-Presidential candidate in 2011 on the platform of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change.
