Only Tinubu Couldn’t Win His Base, And You Said He’s The Champion In The North? - Dele Momodu

Dele Momodu, a leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), claims that the "preponderance of the Igbo people in Lagos" is what allowed Peter Obi, the Labour Party's (LP) candidate, to win the state of Lagos in the just ended presidential election.

Momodu, a supporter of PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, claimed that whereas Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Party (APC) was unable to hang on to his stronghold in Lagos, both Obi and Atiku maintained their respective geopolitical bases.

In particular, the Bimodal Voter Registration System (BVAS) and the timely transmission of results through its Result Viewing Portal, he said that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had fallen short of their commitments (IReV).

He asserted that the APC leadership under President Muhammadu Buhari ought to have informed People that the APC is not yet prepared to take office and should not have bothered to hold elections.

The PDP leader referred to the presidential election on February 25, 2023 as one of Nigeria's worst since the First Republic.

While speaking, he queried, “Obi started in the East. He had his base intact. Atiku had his base intact in the North-East and the North-West. The only person who could not hold his base was Bola Tinubu, and now, you are telling me that a man who could not hold his base is the champion in the north?
