Rahman explained that all factional groups within the Lagos APC were disbanded to promote discipline and unity within the party.

In another news report, Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Citadel Global Community Church says he has a vision to become the next president after Muhammadu Buhari.
In a recent interview with Sunday Sun, the man of God maintained that he would be the 16th president.
According to him, he has never had the ambition to become president, but a vision, which he says are two different things.
On media reports about him saying he will be the next president after Buhari, Bakare responded: "Yes, I said so in the Church. I am a free citizen, my desire can be expressed and anyone who is angry about that can express their own.
I said he is number 15 and I will be number 16." Speaking about the clamour for Igbo presidency, the cleric said though every citizen has the right to express his or her own political aspirations, it is who the cap fits that wears it.
He noted that a day will come when it will not matter the ethnic nationality, but it will be who can deliver.
