Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has bought the nomination and expression of interest forms of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to contest the ruling party’s presidential ticket for the 2023 elections.
He purchased the form on Thursday (today), same day Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Citadel Global Community Church Lagos, also bought the N100 million APC forms, even though he is yet to officially declare his intention.
Bakare is expected to declare his 2023 presidential ambition officially on Monday, at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja.
While Bakare came himself at the International Conference Centre (ICC) Abuja, to personally pick his forms, the VP had his forms picked up for him by his support groups led by Senator Kabiru Gaya.
Osinbajo’s aide on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, who confirmed this in post on his Twitter handle said, “A passionate team of support groups and individual Nigerians from across the country have raised funds to support the purchase of APC nomination forms for the Vice President’s 2023 presidential bid. Today, the forms are being collected by representatives of the team, just as the VP continues his interactions with APC stakeholders across the States.
“Today, he is in Cross River and Bayelsa States. It’s all about the VP’s desire to serve the people of Nigeria with all his heart, his experience, insight and knowledge.”
