The Serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church (CGCC), Pastor Tunde Bakare on Thursday purchased the All Progressives Congress nomination and expression of interest forms.
Naija News had earlier reported that Bakare officially declared his intention to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari at the end of his tenure.
The cleric declared his presidential ambition during the virtual meeting unveiling Project 16 to Nigerians in the diaspora with the theme “The portrait of a new Nigeria”.
Bakare said: “Considering the prevailing state of the nation, Nigerians desperately need a leader who can reconcile grievous historical and current differences, reintegrate the various ethnic and religious constituent parts into true nationhood, and rebuild the broken walls of federalism while maximising the country’s diverse geo-economic potential.
“This brings me to the brand, PTB. PTB is currently an acronym for Pastor ‘Tunde Bakare. The PTB brand is the rallying point for ‘Project 16.’
“Nevertheless, Project 16 is not just about me. It is not about the presidential ambition of any man. In any case, I do not have a self-generated ambition. What I do have is a vision of a New Nigeria that was birthed in me from childhood and an honest aspiration to serve as the sixteenth president of my beloved nation, Nigeria.”
Bakare would hope to clinch the presidential ticket of the ruling party ahead of other aspirants.
