Action Congress of Nigeria governorship candidate in the coming Ondo State election has accused Congress for Progressive Change, Vice President Candidate in the 2011 Presidential election, Pastor Tunde Bakare of "pushing” General Muhammadu Buhari to failure during the election.
In a statement issues by the Director of Media, Publicity and Strategy of Akeredolu’s group, Idowu Ajanaku, said Bakare "is notorious for being on the losing side. He supported Gen. Muhammad Buhari in the last presidential election and pushed the much loved man with his ambition to become vice president until their party lost woefully. Nobody will take him serious, a man who has abused respected men of God in the land. How many of his predictions have come to pass. He predicted that Obasanjo will not become president in 1999 but the man ended up spending eight years in office.”
He spoke as the Convener of Save Nigeria Group (SNG), Pastor Tunde Bakare said the proposed regional integration in the South West should not be a partisan agenda, noting that the interest of the people should be considered first before that of any political party.
Bakare who predicted that Governor Olusegun Mimiko would win "hands down” and "nothing will happen” afterwards spoke in Lagos in reference to the plan by the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) to win the governorship election in Ondo State towards regional integration of the South West. He said the idea that only one political party could integrate the region economically was borne out of "colonial thinking” which was to the common people’s detriment.
