Nigerians have taken to social media to react to a picture of Chief Dele Momodu, the publisher of Ovation International Magazine and Ghana's president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo.

The astute journalist who recently joined the largest opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Congress (PDP) two months ago declared his intention to contest in the 2023 polls.

He has since been on the road creating alliances with some of Nigeria's political elites.

Momodu shared details of his unplanned meeting with Ghana's president on Instagram.

According to him, President Akuffo-Addo wished him well after they discussed his presidential ambitions.

"What an evening in Accra, Ghana, tonight!! I had invited two of my friends PASTOR ADE ADEBAJO and @ian_okus_ to dinner at La Chaumiere, my favorite French-Mediterranean restaurant.

"We had barely settled in when we saw the President of Ghana, NANA AKUFO-ADDO, stroll in leisurely. At first, we whispered to ourselves that it couldn’t be him but I was so sure because of his signature voice.

"He spoke impeccable French to his guest. Later, I told the Algerian Restauranteur AHMED HAMDI to mention my presence to PRESIDENT AKUFO-ADDO who was sitting next to our table. So I walked up to him and said 'Good evening Your Excellency…'

"He responded in kind, 'Good evening big man, heard you’re contesting to be the President of Nigeria. I wish you the best of luck…'

"No airs around him, only one security man and a driver. On his way out, we took a few pictures and said good night…"

Impressed with his networking skills, Nigerians took to social media to react to the meeting between the two.
