A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and publisher of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu, has said that certain individuals, especially northern leaders within the All Progressives Congress, are not supporting Bola Tinubu's ambition genuinely.

Speaking on Channels Television's 2023 Verdict, which was monitored by Legit.ng, Momodu said these leaders within the ruling party are only positioning themselves for the next election cycle in 2027, knowing fully well that the party's current flagbearer will not win at the polls.

Governor Nasir El-Rufai is not genuinely supporting Tinubu - Momodu

Speaking further, Momodu noted that some southerners were excited at hearing Governor Nasir El-Rufai recently become very vocal with his support for Tinubu.

He, however, noted that such support is not genuine as El-Rufai knows and understands that Tinubu will not win the 2023 presidential election.

He said:

"It is not about power returning to the south, they know that no southerner can win without the north and no northerner can win without the south.

"The truth is they are playing the game, they know the man (Tinubu) is going nowhere, and there are too many reasons why Tinubu will not be president.
"When your vices outweigh your virtues, no country will accept you."
