Dele Momodu welcomes Wike’s eye on Aso Rock



Chief Dele Momodu on Sunday welcomes the Rivers State Governor, Mr. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike’s declaration to run for the office of the President of Nigeria under the platform of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).

Governor Wike, who made his intention known in Makurdi, Benue State after a meeting with PDP stakeholders, stressed that his priority will be to tackle the festering insecurity in the country and engender rule of law.

The Publisher of Ovation Magazine International on his Instagram said, “I’m happy to welcome my very dear friend and Brother GOVERNOR NYESOM WIKE into the Presidential race… His declaration will certainly bring some robustness and excitement to the race that has largely thrown up four Northern aspirants and two Southern aspirants who have bought their forms… with Wike in the race, we now have former Vice President ALHAJI ATIKU ABUBAKAR (Adamawa, North East), GOVERNOR BALA MOHAMMED (Bauchi, North East), GOVERNOR AMINU WAZIRI TAMBUWAL (Sokoto, North West), Former Governor/Senate President DR ABUBAKAR BUKOLA SARAKI (Kwara, North Central), Former Senate President/Secretary to Federal Government AYIM PIUS AYIM (Ebonyi, South East), Publisher/Journalist CHIEF DELE MOMODU (Edo, South South and Osun, South West)… Former Governor MR PETER OBI (Anambra, South East) was also reported to have joined the race but not sure he’s bought the form yet. Interesting weeks ahead…”

NEWSVERGE recalled that the People Democratic Party chieftain in February 2022 declared his intention to vie for the presidential ticket of the party.

During his declaration briefing, Momodu vowed to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2023 general election just as he began consultations with members of his Ihievbe ancestral community in Edo State to solicit their blessings.

Explaining while he is vying for the office of the president of the country, Governor Wike said that he will pragmatically tackle the issue of insecurity.

He said service chiefs and heads of other security agencies will be provided with the requisite equipment and incentives to discharge their constitutional obligations. According to him, they will also be given timeline to tackle the lingering insecurity as his administration will not be disposed to excuses.

“Today, you can’t talk about security in this country and you must understand that without security you can’t talk about governance. One first thing that anybody who takes an oath of office is sworn to, is that you must protect life and property. If you can’t protect life and property then you can’t talk about governance. So that major thing is that our people should be alive,” Wike said.
