The publisher of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu has vowed that he won’t give up his 2023 presidential ambition for anyone because he’s a man of principle.
Dele Momodu Speaks On His Presidential Ambition
The media mogul, who is a presidential hopeful on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), insisted that he will remain in the race till the date of the party’s presidential primary election scheduled for May 28.
Momodu, who stated this on Friday after appearing before the party’s screening committee in Abuja, said the exercise was successful, adding that members of the committee are among “the most experienced members” of PDP.
He said, “I was very excited to see them. It was a very straightforward exercise. I’m looking forward to robust engagement with Nigerians in the coming days and weeks,” he said.
“It is going to be exciting. Anyone who feels Dele Momodu is here to waste time or to step down for somebody, tell them that Dele Momodu is a man of principle.
“My message to the delegates is that they should not sell their conscience; they should vote their conscience.
“I don’t have money but I have integrity, I have a reputation, I have a global brand. Our founding fathers in Nigeria, chief Obafemi Awolowo, Nnamdi Azikiwe — they all had journalism background.”
Momodu also said Nigeria needs a president who can take decisions that will have a positive impact on citizens’ lives.
“The world can only be changed by intellectuals and not by money. Everywhere in the world now, people are electing superstars. You need somebody who has been interacting with Nigerians to be president and will be able to take charge from day one,” he added.
KanyiDaily recalls that Dele Momodu had claimed that he was preserved by God to defeat the ruling the All Progressives Congress (APC) and become Nigeria’s president in 2023.
