Actress Hilda Dokubo has mocked senior pastor of Citadel Global Community Church (CGCC) Tunde Bakare for scoring zero votes at the presidential primary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) held in Abuja.
This result was announced after the sorting of ballots on Wednesday, June 8 following the end of voting.
Bakare, who was President Muhammadu Buhari’s running mate in 2011, bought the N100 million presidential forms in early May.
Reacting to the loss in an Instagram post on Wednesday Hilda Dokubo wrote: “So even Pastor Tunde Bakare did not vote for himself? What a “stepping up” hahaha”.
In another post, the actress wrote: “One hundred million Naira which could have been used effectively for evangelism or jobless youths in church.”
In September 2019, the clergyman said God told him he would succeed President Buhari in 2023.
Just before the convention began, Bakare told Channels TV that he pitched his candidacy to the delegates through bulk SMS.
His words: “I got to all the delegates and sent them bulk SMS in different languages. There is no single delegate – not the ones that have been banned because when they were running all around, they were going to statutory delegates that cannot vote.
“I didn’t go to them. I got the information and booklet of all the delegates in every state and every local government and everyone got a message from me, and many responded.”
Bakare also said he did not believe in financial inducement to get votes.
