A key member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s presidential campaign council, Dele Momodu, on Tuesday described Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a potential dictator.
Mr. Momodu made this assertion while speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today which was monitored by Africa Daily News, New York.
‘I will never support a dictatorship,’ he said. ‘I suffered under dictatorship. I was in detention, I was in exile for three years. Dictatorship has no way in my books.’
“So once you begin to demonstrate dictatorship, I will move back. He (Tinubu) is a potential dictator.”
Tinubu is the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress in next year’s election.
Meanwhile, Mr. Festus Keyamo who is the Minister of State for Labour and Employment has lambasted the Director of Strategic Communications of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s Presidential Campaign Council, Dele Momodu, after the latter accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate, Bola Tinubu, of plagiarism.
The Ovation Magazine publisher had on Sunday labeled Tinubu’s 80-page policy document as a plagiarised version of late MKO Abiola’s ‘Hope ‘93’ manifesto, which was rehashed with Buhari’s 2015 Action Plan.
In his article titled ‘APC: Renewed hope or forlorn hope?’ Momodu disclosed that it was unfortunate Tinubu couldn’t come up with original ideas and resorted to copying the memory of a man whose hope for Nigeria was noble.
But a livid Keyamo chided Momodu in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday, saying the PDP’s strategy director is running a ‘cheap’ hatchet job to impress his ‘new paymasters.’
The spokesperson of Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council further stated that it appeared the opposition party was unaware that Nigerians have rejected them.
The minister recalled that Momodu has lived in Lagos for over three decades and knows the state it was before and after 1999 when Tinubu was a governor.
