2023 Presidency: Dele Momodu retires, reveals those that should run the race
Media Mogul, Dele Momodu has retired on his ambition for 2023 presidency.
Momodu on Thursday announced that he has passed the baton to the likes of Omoyele Sowore, Fela Durotoye and Kingsley Moghalu.
He made this known while responding to a Nigerian user on Twitter who asked him about running for 2023 presidency.
The fan had said; “I thought it was a 2023 campaign poster. You look presidential in style and content any day.”
Responding, Momodu wrote: “ No such ambition again.
“Let the Sowores, Moghalus and Durotoyes pick the batons from us.”
Recall, Prof. Kingsley Moghalu during the 2019 presidential election was the candidate of the Young Progressives Party, YPP while Sowore was candidate of African Action Congress, AAC.
It would be recalled that Dele Momodu had earlier revealed that his ambition to become Nigeria president in the 2011 general election was borne of frustration for the country.
In September 2010, Momodu submitted his expression of interest form to contest for the 2011 presidential polls on the platform of the Labour Party (LP).
He later resigned from LP in December 2010 and joined the National Conscience Party (NCP) where he contested and lost the election.
Momodu, according to the election result released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), polled 26,376 votes which ranked him 11th in the election log.
Since the election, Momodu said he returned to his business to prevent him to “join the growing list of serial contesters who contest and lose at every election.”
