A publisher of Ovation magazine and presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dele Momodu said he love the APC presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu, but he can’t support him because APC has done too much damage to Nigeria.

In his Instagram post on Friday, Momodu recounted his experience with the wife of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Remi Tinubu, who asked him if he is going to campaign for her husband, at the funeral of a chieftain of the APC, the late Kemi Nelson in Lagos.

He wrote: “Before some people add salt and pepper (sic) to it, I need to state precisely what happened. Senator Tokunbo Abiru and Dr Tunji Olowolafe and I had walked in about the same time and we went to greet my very dear sister, Senator Oluremi Tinubu. Immediately she saw me, we exchanged our usual pleasantries and then she asked me, “So, Bob  Dee, you’re not going to campaign for my husband?” I smiled and remained very calm before replying, “Your Excellency, I’m in PDP.” She apparently didn’t find it funny and regaled us with the past I shared with her husband and I tried to calm her down.

“Anyway, I went back to my seat and pondered on what just happened and I soliloquised. Before the PDP primary, I had been asked repeatedly by journalists if I’ll dump PDP if I don’t get the ticket, my answer was NO (sic). So if I had gotten the PDP ticket, would I step down for TINUBU of APC, the answer is No (sic).

He added, “APC candidates are promising to continue Buhari’s “good works!” I joined PDP in order to sack APC from power and to do this I needed a strong opposition party.

“I love Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. We’ve truly come way back. APC has done too much damage to Nigeria.

“I choose to place Nigeria above friendship… I will try my best to support and encourage our PDP candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to do the right things in our party and to rescue our dear beloved country from the vestiges of oppression, religious intolerance, poverty, terrorism, infrastructure decay, economic wows, unemployment.”
