Presidential aspirant on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party and publisher of Ovation Magazine, Delete Momodu, has said he never campaigned for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.
Momodu stated this in an interview with media entrepreneur, Chude Jideonwo.
Speaking on his perception of Buhari, the ovation publisher said: “I actually like the man personally but his politics, no way.”
The presidential aspirant denied allegations that he promoted Buhari’s campaign for the presidency.
“I didn’t sell Buhari to you. All I did was post his pictures. There is no way anyone can say, I said you must go and vote for Buhari.
“The mess in Nigeria today is because Nigerians find it difficult to detach themselves from career politicians.
“But Nigeria cannot continue in this madness. Why we lack progress is because we are too embittered, too enraged it is unbelievable,” he said.
Momodu also spoke about how he lived in fear in London after fleeing the country following the crack down on pro-democracy activists by former head of state, Gen. Sani Abacha.
The Ovation publisher narrated how himself and his staff escaped a bomb explosion next to his office space around the Canary Wharf in London.
“So we got an office and second-hand furniture. So we decided to get a bottle of cognac and celebrate because we got an office not minding how we were going to pay printers.
“Then boom! There was a bomb next to our building. A massive explosion with over 100 houses blown apart.
“We started running, and I started shouting Abacha! Abacha!.
“I thought Abacha had discovered where I was. So we ran, and we saw police dogs everywhere. Apparently, they had evacuated the area, and we didn’t know because we were busy celebrating.
“But we were lucky the building was bombproof, and our building was able to withstand the impact,” he said.
