The serving Overseer of Global Citadel Community Church (CGCC), Pastor Tunde Bakare, has assessed his conduct during Tuesday’s presidential primary election of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja.
Although he did not get any vote at the contest, the preacher, as he calls himself, said he passed the character and courage test by abstaining from paying the party’s delegates.
Prior to the shadow poll, the cleric had shunned calls for him to step down for other stronger contenders, vowing that he would rather step up.
At the end of the proceeding, APC national stalwart, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, clinched the ticket with 1,271 votes to become the paryy’s flag bearer.
In a statement released on Thursday, Bakare said he spoke the truth in the midst of wolves.
“I am happy that I have passed the test of character by not paying any delegate.
“I passed the test of courage by speaking the truth in the midst of wolves and the test of conviction by standing true to my beliefs. Those who will make a difference must be different,” he said.
