Veteran journalist and Chairman of OVATION MEDIA GROUP, Dele Momodu has taken a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari and his government.
He said; “I see Buhari government as more pro-military than pro-democracy. I am hoping that the government of today, beyond naming the stadium after Abiola, beyond declaring the public holiday, I’m hoping that they will also be able to unite Nigeria.”
“When you see an executive arm that seeks to control everything, executive controls executive, executive controls judiciary, controls legislature, controls the media, that is military.”
“Absolute power, as they say, creates absolute dictatorship.”
For those who don’t know, Chief Dele Momodu was Nigeria’s Presidential candidate in 2011 on the platform of National Conscience Party (NCP).
