Dele Momodu responds to allegations he betrayed his £500 vow to President Tinubu



Dele Momodu, a former presidential candidate, on Tuesday, alleged he never promised President Bola Tinubu his unwavering support in exchange for the £500 he provided him while in exile.

He made this assertion via a post on his X account, while noting that he had more than compensated the president for the assistance he provided.

Momodu was responding to conflicting accounts of an interview in which he purportedly promised to always back Tinubu.

He posted, “The APC goons will never get tired of circulating their own version of the interview I granted @chudeity a few years ago.

“They are so obsessed with the part I said Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu gave me 500 pounds in London during our exile years, as if that means I must become a perpetual slave because of that well appreciated support.

“Truth is, I repaid that favour a thousand fold, in ways I’m not willing to divulge, but the commonest being free and regular publicity on Ovation platforms running into thousands of dollars. It is called ‘adding value…’

“Nowhere did I say I will give unconditional support to Tinubu.”
