Dele Momodu Dele Momodu

The Chief Executive Officer and Publisher, Ovation Magazine and The Boss Newspaper, Chief Dele Momodu, yesterday expressed concern about the lack of unity in the country, saying that those who have been oppressed are afraid that people who have amassed so much wealth in Nigeria will continue to oppress them.

Momodu, who on spoke ARISE News Channel, also declared his interest in running for the presidency of Nigeria. He described politics as managing people and resources, adding that it is impossible to become the president of a country as complex as Nigeria if you don’t prepare for it.

He noted that the best way to change the mindset of the oppressed is by bringing someone who is bold enough to challenge that status quo, adding that there is no country in the world that things ever changed if one man is not ready to make that sacrifice.

On what he is likely to do differently being a new comer on the platform of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), he said the first thing he would do, is to prove to the party that he can win them the ticket, adding that any serious party that wants to win an election, will not just pick someone who does not have the global appeal.
