Pastor Tunde Bakare has opened up on why got zero votes at the All Progressives Congress presidential primary election last week.
Bakare, the Overseer Pastor at the Citadel Global Community Church in Lagos, had claimed that God told him he would be the next president of Nigeria.
He, however, failed to get a single vote during last Tuesday’s presidential primary of the ruling party.
On Sunday, he told his church members that he was unable to get a single vote during the primary because he refused play certain kinds of politics and compromise his values.
The cleric spoke on the topic “A New Nigeria is possible.”
He said, “Our heads remain unbowed because we did not compromise on the values that are integral to building a New Nigeria.
“For us, the means have always been as important as the end. This is why we confidently wear our zero votes as a badge of zero tolerance for a certain kind of politics.
“This is not the work of just one man or woman or just one party, but the calling upon every Nigerian worthy of the name.”
Bakare, who expressed hope that God is going to bless Nigeria with leaders that love justice and not money, urged Nigerians to rally round the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, to transform the country.
