Why I Now Oppose Buhari – Dele Momodu Speaks Up
Dele Momodu, a 2011 presidential candidate, has disclosed his reasons for opposing the president, Major Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd).
In a post on his verified Facebook page, Momodu stated that Buhari’s style of governance is horrible, which has made Nigeria regress.
“My opposition to Buhari today is nothing personal. He is likeable when you meet him, but his administrative style is horrible.
“His government has taken Nigeria back to the Stone Age. We have never been this divided.
“The economy is wobbly, while insecurity is at its worst ever in supposed peacetime.
The veteran journalist also stated how he got into politics despite not joining a political party. In 2015, Momodu worked with Buhari under the All Progressives Congress party.
However, Momodu made a case for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, stating that the party is the solution to the country’s current challenges.
“[The] PDP is the only practical political available within which serious opposition can hope to sack the APC behemoth and send them back to wherever they came from,” he wrote.
