An umbrella body of support groups backing Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo for president, the Progressive Project (TPP), has allegedly picked the All Progressives Congress (APC) expression of interest and nomination forms for the vice-president.
Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, confirmed the development in a series of tweets on Thursday.
It was said that Kabiru Gaya, senator from Kano, picked the forms worth N100 million for Osinbajo at the International Conference Centre (ICC) in Abuja.
“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,” he tweeted.
“Today, the forms have been 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 desire and resolve of the VP to serve the people of Nigeria with all his heart, experience and insights.”
Similarly, the Serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, Nigeria, Tunde Bakare, also purchased the APC N100m nomination and expression of interests forms, to contest the 2023 presidential primary in Abuja.
He joins the growing list of APC presidential aspirants ahead of May 30 primary elections.
