Popular pastor and presidential hopeful, Tunde Bakare says he has been chosen and ordained to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
Bakare made this known on Wednesday when he submitted his expression of interest and nomination forms for the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the International Conference Centre in Abuja.
The Senior Pastor of the Citadel Global Community Church, Tunde Bakare said he is eminently qualified either by age or experience to be the next president in 2023.
Bakare expressed optimism that he will emerge as the flagbearer of the ruling party and win the 2023 presidential election for the ruling party.
The APC chieftain reiterated that his campaign would be anchored on four pillars of peace, progress, prosperity and possibility.
He, however, promised to obey the rules and regulations of the party during the campaign and hope that the APC will create a level playing ground for all the aspirants.
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.”
The clergyman joins the likes of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, APC National Leader Bola Tinubu, Senate President Ahmad Lawan, and Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, among others.
