Dele Momodu has vowed to campaign against President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election, noting that Nigeria deserves someone better than the 75-year-old president.
Momodu disclosed this on Monday, August 13, 2018, during a question and answer session on his Twitter account (@DeleMomodu).
He further went on to state that even though he wishes Buhari well, Nigeria deserves a stronger president.
He posted, “When the candidates emerge, I will proudly support one against APC, if BUHARI goes ahead to run… In a country of nearly 200m, I see and know a lot of vibrant candidates, young or old… If APC presents a different candidate, my choice may change but I won’t follow sheepishly!
“I may support a fresh candidate in any party including APC… There is nothing personal about BUHARI other than that in his present state, which is due to no fault of his, Nigeria deserves someone stronger… I wish him well always…”
The president ended months of speculation when he officially announced his intention to seek re-election in the 2019 presidential election during a meeting with the National Executive Committee of the APC on April 9, 2018.
