The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) aspirant, Chief Dele Momodu has denied claims that he has endorsed the former Governor of Lagos State and national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the 2023 presidential election.
There have been several publications making rounds that Momodu who is aspiring for the office of the Nigerian President, is in support of Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s presidential race.
Momodu on the evening of Saturday 15th January, 2022 took to his official Instagram page to clear the air. The PDP presidential aspirant wrote:
“I’VE NOT ENDORSED TINUBU – DELE MOMODU
In all honesty, I do not know who the media handlers of ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU are but I can reasonably confirm that they’ve been fumbling too much by being so cheap, unimaginative and jejune in their campaigns. Are they not ashamed that several people, including the respected DR AKINWUMI ADESINA of the African Development Bank, have publicly denied endorsing TINUBU for the 2023 Presidential election because of this unfortunate desperation to sell him as the only candidate of APC in 2023.
Now, I’m their latest victim. An article I wrote two years ago about TINUBU has suddenly become a fresh endorsement in 2022. What chicanery is this? While I have tremendous respect for ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU, his handlers have no right to engage in pure mischief by abusing our relationship. They’ve even made pamphlets of my article. But unknown to them, a lot of water has passed under the bridge since I wrote that article and I have my cogent reasons for not joining APC – PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI’s divisiveness and the culpable silence of TINUBU and the Vice President PROFESSOR YEMI OSINBAJO in condoning his excesses and keeping mute in the face of barefaced tyranny. Southern Leaders who crave to be President have failed to protect their own people from the blistering attacks they’ve endured under the Buhari government, most especially the people of the South East. The whole country is in turmoil and Northern Leaders have been more courageous in telling Buhari the blatant truth while ours have been so cowardly because of their insatiable propensity for power…
I have other reasons…
I earnestly ask the spin doctors to delete my name from their reckless and self seeking endorsements…
AARE DELE MOMODU
