The former Chairman of the defunct Congress Progressives Change, Senator Rufai Hanga, has accused the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu of preventing Pastor Tunde Bakare from running with President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.
Pastor Bakare ran with President Buhari in 2011 but they lost in 2015, while Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo ran and secured victory.
Hanga in an interview with Daily Trust said Buhari wanted to run with Bakare again in 2015 but Tinubu brought Osinbajo.
“There was a time that we wanted to merge with Tinubu’s party, the ACN, ahead of the 2011 election. These people went and told Buhari everything and that he shouldn’t accept anything from Tinubu.”
