“If Tinubu cannot be supported by the North, there’s no hope for Nigeria”, Dele Momodu

Publisher of Ovation Magazine and notable columnist, Mr. Dele Momodu said Tinubu his fit to contest for President of Nigeria, adding that he was certain Tinubu will perform.

Speaking through his popular column, Pendulum, in ThisDay newspaper, he said, “If Tinubu cannot be supported by the North, despite all he did for Muhammadu Buhari to become President, after chasing the shadows for three record times, then there is no hope for Nigeria

“I have followed his trajectory for close to three decades. His story is a stuff of fairy tales. All those who have disparaged, derided, denigrated and despised him have not been able to bring him down, despite their monumental efforts to achieve this.

“When you think he is supine, broken and out, he rises, like the Black onyx and soars again. I witnessed this, live and direct, during our exile days. Many times, we all felt down and out but Tinubu’s passion and influence re-engineered things and made us redouble our efforts.

“He is naturally smart and adequately fearless. A mutual friend once told a few of us that he is very sure Tinubu would still take the risk even if you say a particular venture will kill him. He has such kamikaze instincts. You can’t go far in life, if you’re too squeamish and Tinubu is a living proof that courage conquers all”, he said.

Even though former governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the ruling political party in Nigeria, All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has been cautiously and deliberately silent over his reported ambition for the presidency in 2023, his perceived ambition has continue to generate serious debate and fervent interests from across all strata of the society.
