Dele Momodu Denies Endorsing Tinubu’s Presidential Bid

Media mogul and Presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dele Momodu, has denied backing Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s plan to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.

Reports had emerged on Friday, Naija News gathered, claiming the Ovation magazine publisher had endorsed the presidential ambition of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Reacting in a statement on Saturday, Dele Momodu slammed individuals handling Tinubu’s publicity, accusing them of being cheap, unimaginative and jejune in their campaigns.

According to the socialite, the article in circulation which Tinubu media handlers are claiming is an endorsement was written two years ago.

He accused these individuals of being too desperate to sell the former Lagos State governor as the only candidate of APC in 2023.

Dele Momodu wrote: “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.”

He stated that 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.

Momodu stated that the whole country is in turmoil, adding that northern leaders have been more courageous in telling Buhari the blatant truth.

“I earnestly ask the spin doctors to delete my name from their reckless and self seeking endorsements,” he added.
