Dele Momodu storms PDP headquarters, declares for presidency.
Dele Momodu, a publisher and newspaper writer, has announced his intention to run for president in 2023 on the Peoples Democratic Party platform (PDP).
He made the announcement after formally delivering his letter of intent to run for president to PDP National Chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, at the PDP National Secretariat in Abuja.
Momodu explained that he took the move because he could not become president unless his political party nominated him first.
In his remarks, Ayu stated that the party will provide a level playing field for all candidates and that the party has no favourite candidate.
The PDP president advised the aspirant to seek the party’s support, saying the aspirant had brought his political and media skills to the party.
He said the party would support him if he emerges as its candidate and will expect all other aspirants to team up with whoever becomes the standard-bearer of the party.
