We cannot continue this way because we have something to offer this country, and we will by the grace of God,” he said.

He said he would continue to pray for the day when  every Nigerian would come out and make their votes count, urging Nigerians to desist from allowing themselves to be deceived by ‘stomach infrastructure’ when the needed infrastructure in their communities had decayed.

 Recall that Bakare was Buhari’s presidential running mate in 2011. He had also at Calgary, Canada, in an interview published on January 3, predicted that he would succeed Buhari as Nigeria’s 16th president or head of state.
