Momodu cautions against recycling of same leaders – Nexus News

Otunba Dele Momodu, a presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), yesterday stated that the growth, progress and development of the country could not be attained by recycling the same set of people as rulers.

Momodu, the Ovation Publisher, said this at the Alarere residence of the Olubadan-designate, Dr. Lekan Balogun, during his consultation visit to the new monarch.

He disclosed that Nigerians had over the years been lamenting about the numerous problems facing the country, but solutions to those crisis could not be achieved through the same set of people that had remained in the corridors of power.

“It has been said that the classical definition of insanity is to repeat the same thing over time and expect different results,” he said, stating that the desire to change the situation informed his decision to contest for President in the 2023 general election.


He recalled that he made a similar attempt to contest 11 years ago under the aegis of National Conscience Party (NCP) but would be using a bigger platform, the PDP, for the fulfillment of his dream this time due to its popularity.

He said: “Nobody knows about how things work or move in Nigeria better than the new Olubadan because of his deep and versed knowledge of either politics or administration, hence, I won’t go into reeling out policies to you Kabiyesi.

“Rather, I ‘ll crave Baba’s indulgence to present three volumes of books that I had written, which encapsulate my policies.”

Afterwards Momodu presented the three volumes of books with the titles Pendulum 1, Pendulum 2 and Fighting Lions (The untold story of Dele Momodu’s presidential campaign) to the monarch.

The Olubadan-designate, who welcomed the presidential aspirant and his associates, was joined by his Olori, Olufunmilayo and Ekarun Olubadan, High Chief Hamidu Ajibade.

Ajibade, who spoke on behalf of the monarch, noted that Momodu had used his profession through publication of Ovation magazine to positively project and improve the cause of Nigeria and Nigerians, praying that his efforts of the past years would go a very long way to enhance his aspiration.

He urged the aspirant’s wife, Mobolaji, who among others came with Momodu to Ibadan, to always pray for him, emphasizing that without the support of women in men’s life, to succeed would be difficult.
