The Progressive Project (TPP), an umbrella body of support groups backing Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo for president, has allegedly picked the All Progressives Congress (APC) expression of interest and nomination forms for the vice-president.
Kabiru Gaya, senator from Kano, picked the forms worth N100 million for Osinbajo at the International Conference Centre (ICC) in Abuja.
Laolu Akande, spokesman of the vice-president, confirmed the development in a series of tweets on Thursday.
“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.”
Tunde Bakare, the overseer of the Citadel GAlobal Community Church, also purchased the forms.
Other presidential hopefuls on the platform of the party are still expected to pick the forms.
