Nigerian journalist and publisher of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu has revealed why he will win the presidency in 2023 under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Dele Momodu Speaks On His Presidential Ambition
KanyiDaily recalls that Dele Momodu had declared his presidential ambition on Thursday, January 13, when he met the PDP chairman, Ayorchia Ayu, at the party headquarters in Abuja.
During an interview on Channels Television on Thursday, the media mogul said has been preserved by God to defeat the ruling the All Progressives Congress (APC) and become Nigeria’s president.
Asked if he can withstand the influence of Atiku Abubakar and other PDP aspirants, Momodu said he is the biggest brand in Nigeria, adding that no aspirant has friends across party lines like him.
He said, “I don’t like to sound immodest. There is no brand bigger than — brand Dele Momodu — in Nigeria. I’m not even talking about the party
“I will be one of the few candidates similar to Chief Abiola who will have support across party lines. There is no individual who is relying only on his party who should feel comfortable about winning an election. I’m one of the few.
“When I joined the PDP, my first assignment is to ask the young people to start registering online —iampdp.com — go and check how many people have registered
“If you cannot drive out the youth, the biggest political party — the youth — I called the voters’ party, if a party ignores the voters and you want to defeat an incumbent party like APC, where they have people who don’t care about anything.
“You must get, one, a candidate with a very clean record, no controversy. You must get a candidate who is youth-friendly. You must get a candidate who is cosmopolitan.
“You must get a candidate who is friends with everybody but very firm who can speak truth to power. I have been speaking truth to power despite the fact that most of these guys are my friends. You hardly find such in any political party. Dele Momodu was preserved by God for that role.”
When asked if he would leave the PDP if he did not get the ticket, he said he would support any candidate who emerges as the party’s standard-bearer.
KanyiDaily recalls that Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi had also declared his intention to contest the 2023 presidential election, saying he was acting on God’s directive.
