Mark my words! Dele Momodu reveals Tinubu will contest for 2019 presidency

Media mogul and former presidential aspirant, Chief Dele Momodu has revealed that well respected and highly influential leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will contest in the 2019 presidential election. Dele Momodu reveals Tinubu.

Chief Momodu hinted that Yoruba leaders are preparing Tinubu for presidency come 2019. His comments came following the recent comments of the former interim chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande, which has continued to spark reactions across Nigeria.

Dele Momodu reveals Tinubu

Dele Momodu reveals TinubuRecall that Akande, a confidante of Tinubu, was recently quoted as saying there is no automatic ticket for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.

Political analysts consequently interpreted Akande’s comment to mean Tinubu is withdrawing support for the president.

Also joining the fray is Ife-born Chief Momodu who went further by suggesting that Tinubu will contest the 2019 presidential election.

He stated that the Yoruba leadership will no longer support any other tribe for presidency, adding that zoning would never work again in Nigeria’s politics.

“What Baba Akande has not said is simply that the days when the presidency would be voluntarily zoned to exclude most sections of the country in favour of another section, whether the candidate presented and supported by the people is competent or useless, are over.

“The truth is zoning never worked anyway, as some presidential candidates left their original parties for other parties in defiance of the zoning formula of their own party.

Dele Momodu reveals Tinubu“Without mincing words, it is obvious that the Yoruba leadership has decided it would no longer support other tribes, zones or regions to attain to power to the exclusion of their tribe. They would rather work hard, reach out, and join hands with like minds to get power.

“Their decision is borne out of the acute frustration and disappointment that makes them feel cheated about the Nigerian configuration which does not throw up the best but regularly favours the dregs of society who have only contributed to drawing Nigeria backward, in most cases.

“The campaign has probably started in earnest, culminating in the search for a Yoruba presidency,” Momodu, who is also the publisher of Ovation magazine, wrote.

He said though the governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose has thrown his hat into the ring, Tinubu is also warming up for his turn to take a major shot at the race of his life that is most significant.

Dele Momodu reveals Tinubu“Mark my words. One of the greatest political strategists in Nigeria, Tinubu is tired of being a kingmaker and he would rather be the king. Indeed, that has always been his ambition but this has been largely curtailed by circumstances.

“Like many of those who supported Major General Muhammadu Buhari to attain power, after so many attempts, the former Senator and former Governor of Lagos State, feels he’s not gotten the respect and relevance he deserves for his monumental effort. Accordingly, he seems determined to make a personal push.

“Apart from the virtues of Baba Akande that I have enumerated above, a lesser known one is his deep sense of loyalty,” Chief Momodu added.
