A former presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dele Momodu, has described the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as a dictator.
Speaking during an appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Momodu recalled how Tinubu fell out with former Lagos State Governors – Babatunde Raji Fashola and Akinwunmi Ambode.
He also accused the APC presidential candidate of plotting to frustrate Bukola Saraki from emerging as the Senate President in 2015.
According to Momodu, when Tinubu was governor of Lagos State for eight years, he also had issues with his deputy governors.
He said: “I will never support a dictatorship. I suffered under a dictatorship, I was in detention, and exile for three years.
“That is why I have told does saying someone must be president by fire by force, count me out of it. Dictatorship has no way in my books.
“Once you begin to demonstrate a dictatorship, I will move back.”
Asked if Tinubu is a dictatorship, Momodu, the Publisher of Ovation magazine, said the former Lagos State governor is a potential dictator.
He also slammed the Minister of State for Labour and Employment and the APC’s Chief Spokesperson, Festus Keyamo, describing him as an attack dog who likes to yell.
Momodu said: “When he (Keyamo) is talking he doesn’t know how to calm down. He is my ‘aburo’, he is someone close to me but the moment they gave him this job of Minister in a Ministry he has been less than competent, where everything is in shambles.
“If I were in his shoes, I am sure I would have resigned. He is in that ministry and he has the time and audacity to be abusing me because all I did was an academic exercise.”
