However, Pastor Tunde Bakare of The Citadel Global Community Church has vowed not to step down for Bola Tinubu or anyone according to Daily Post. The pastor started by making claims that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission will go after some aspirants after the APC presidential primary is over. According to him, they are “bringing delegates with delegates”.
Pastor Tunde Bakare: “All my campaigns were through bulk SMS. I am not here to step down for Tinubu or anyone. I am here by the Grace of God to step up with the help of the delegates. I am confident that I will become the 16th president of Nigeria”.
