Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Dele Momodu said several friends of All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu have dumped him.

 

The top opposition official accused Tinubu of acting like an Emperor and misusing power.

 

Momodu is the Director of Strategic Communications, Atiku Abubakar-Ifeanyi Okowa Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).

 

In a statement, the spokesperson said Tinubu gave his predecessors tough times while they were in office as Lagos governors.

 

Momodu recalled that during Tinubu’s “egoistic battle” with Babatunde Fashola, he advised him to soft pedal: “He backtracked. In spite of him, Fashola continues to remain relevant in Nigerian politics.”

 

The PDP member said when Tinubu continued his tradition of “hire-and-fire” and started plotting against Akinwumi Ambode, he buried his love for Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to speak up against “the injustice”.

 

He confirmed that President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Governors, and many others begged Tinubu to no avail.

 

Momodu said the same personalities are those the APC flagbearer now wants to make him President. “Nigeria is looking for a President, with compassion and competence, not an Emperor!” he declared.

 

The statement also narrated how Tinubu attempted to stop Bukola Saraki from becoming the Senate President, but was “outsmarted”.

 

Momodu said the APC co-founder loves to bait the masquerade with a goat but will never release the rope.

 

“That’s why he kept losing his best friends like Musiliu Obanikoro, Ambode, Muiz Banire, Opeyemi Bamidele, Rauf Aregbesola, Fuad Oki, Adenrele Adeniran-Ogunsanya, Babafemi Ojudu, Rahman Owokoniran, Kashim Ibrahim-Imam, Aminu Tambuwal.”

 

He mentioned Yakubu Dogara, Nasir El Rufai, Babachir Lawal, Rotimi Akeredolu, Kayode Fayemi, Aro Lambo, Adeseye Ogunlewe, Jimi Agbaje, Ibikunle Amosun, Femi Pedro, Gbenga Daniel, Godwin Obaseki, Yinka Odumakin.

 

Kofo Akerele Bucknor, Remi Adikwu Bakare, Tunji Abayomi, Tokunbo Ajasin, Mulikat Akande, Chief Dapo Sarumi, Amos Akingba, Bolaji Akinyemi, Mojisola Akinfenwa, John Oyegun.

 

Others are Papa Ayo Adebanjo, Papa Abraham Adesanya, Dupe Adelaja, Toyin Fagbayi, Papa Olanihun Ajayi, Prince Dipo Eludoyin, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

 

Momodu further accused Tinubu of decimating pan-Yoruba group, Afenifere, after enjoying their “massive support when we came back from exile in 1998”.
