A Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dele Moomodu, has expressed dissatisfaction with the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, insisting he will not join the ruling government.
According to the Ovation Magazine CEO, it would have been easier to support President Bola Tinubu, however, the Western countries were developed majorly by opposition parties.
He revealed this in a statement issued on Thursday, sharing pictures of himself with Tinubu hugging.
He wrote, “…All the countries we all wish to run to were made better through the huge sacrifices and excruciating pains of some opposition leaders. If it is about convenience, many of us would easily join any government in power but we must set new standards for our nation and kick against electoral malpractices.
“For me, it has nothing to do with who won or who lost but about the shambolic electoral process… It is my personal opinion and I stand by it. It would have been more convenient to defend my friend and Big Brother, but that’s not who I’m. It is a matter of principle…”
Recall that, the PEPT on Wednesday, upheld the victory of President Tinubu at the February 25 polls, dismissing the petitions against him.
