2023: Momodu declares intention to contest PDP primary
About three months after dumping his Labour Party for the PDP, vanity fair publisher Dele Momodu has signified his intention to contest the party’s 2023 presidential ticket.
This will be the second time he will be duking it out with veteran contestants and aspirants in the presidential race.
Among those he will be doing battle with in the primary are ex-V.P Atiku Abubakar, Gov. Aminu Tambuwal, and ex-Sen. President Bukola Saraki.
The Ovation publisher indicated his interest in a letter he handed the PDP National Chairman Iyorcha Ayu at the party’s secretariat in Abuja.
Momodu, the National Daily reported, complained on his defection to the opposition that the APC had fouled up the gains and achievement of the PDP.
And, as a patriot, he had to play his part.
“I have consulted widely. And it is clear to me that given the dangerous and disastrous drift that our nation has experienced in the past six years, the only party from which amends can be made to rectify our situation is the Peoples Democratic Party,” he said last year.
Before then, the former presidential candidate had criticized the PDP for doing nothing over the years.
He was among those who placated former President Goodluck Jonathan to let go following the victory of the APC candidate Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.
