Pastor Tunde Bakare of The Citadel Global Community Church on Thursday purchased the All Progressives Congress (APC’s) expression of interest and nomination forms in Abuja.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the forms are sold at a total price of N100 million.
Bakare is a Nigerian Prophetic-Apostolic pastor. He was reportedly arrested in March 2002 after preaching sermons critical of then-president Olusegun Obasanjo. He was the running mate of the Nigerian presidential candidate Muhammadu Buhari in the 2011 Nigerian presidential election.
He was formerly a pastor at the Deeper Life Bible Church before he left to join the Redeemed Christian Church of God which he soon left to form his own.
Bakare was described by The Guardian as being one of the most politically influential pastors in Nigeria.
