Dele Momodu- APC a disgrace, packaging ‘fluke’ for Nigerians
Dele Momodu, a leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has criticized the incumbent All Progressives Congress (APC) for nominating Bola Ahmed Tinubu as its presidential candidate ahead of the February 25 election.
Momodu, who said on Tuesday during a Sunrise Daily segment on Channels Television, asserted that the ruling party has never before failed to keep its campaign promises.
This came after a quote attributed to the former governor of Lagos State, Raji Fashola, in which he stated that Nigerians needed the APC-led government for another four to eight years.
In a Channels Television interview, Fashola stated that Tinubu has the necessary training and credentials to succeed Buhari as president of Nigeria.
Momodu, on the other hand, insisted on Tuesday that the country’s ruling party was packaged failure, and that Tinubu was fixated on an absurd sense of entitlement.
The Nigerian government has lost control, he declared. The Nigerian populace has had enough.
I’m glad Tinubu and the First Lady have discussed it on several occasions. Tinubu, a career politician in charge of Lagos, is positioned as a regional force.
“It is terrible to suggest that Tinubu was responsible for Buhari’s election on his own.
Many persons, including Kwankwanso, Atiku, and Amaechi, contributed significantly to Buhari’s election as president. What should they do? Then if this is Tinubu’s reason for contesting president, then other people should also be entitled to the position.
“Nigerians should be aware that Tinubu’s campaign is not about a transfer of power to the South, but rather about a single person’s desire to be president. Unfortunately, the party’s packaging error means that it won’t work. Tinubu is ineligible to be president.
Speaking about the division within his party, Momodu criticized the persistent requests for a transfer of power to the South, saying the PDP had always been kind and equitable to the area.
Thus, he asked the party’s unhappy members to get together behind Atiku Abubakar, whom he described as a cosmopolitan candidate with an impressive platform.
“Some South-east competitors criticized Atiku’s idea to rotate power to the region. That is the primary reason the ticket was opened in the first place. Nyeson Wike began to make these demands following the presidential election, but in reality, the majority of them had successfully manoeuvred their way to unseat Secondus in favor of a northern chairman.
“I never argued that the South must gain power through force or fire. As a devoted party member, I had to leave since the authorities intended to alter the primary’s atmosphere. This is to encourage the unhappy members, who have every right to be angry, to band together behind the presidential candidate and move on.
