Publisher Ovation Magazine, Otunba Dele Momodu today met President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa Abuja today.

According to the former presidential candidate of the National Conscience Party (NCP), the meeting held at the instance of the president after he read the journalist’s column, Pendulum in national daily Thisday. The column titled A Desperate Memo to President Buhari where he told Buhari some bitter truth about his presidency.

“Sir, let me say right away that the goodwill garnered during your campaigns and the jubilation that heralded your recent victory are fast fading and you need to, as a matter of urgency, convince the people of Nigeria that you’re now ready to hit the ground running. They are not going to listen to excuses since you had 30 years after quitting the high office to onerously prepare for the job again. For them it is immaterial that you met an empty treasury or that you are mostly surrounded by selfish, corruptive influences and impostors,” he wrote.

Apparently President Buhari felt the hard talk and saw the need to discuss further with the politician who openly supports the All Progressives Congress but is not a card-carrying member of the party.

Although the meeting held behind closed door between Buhari and Dele Momodu alone, the journalist informed Nigerians on social media that he just met the president.

“My meeting with the President was very candid and also rib-cracking!” he wrote.

“The president and I were alone throughout the meeting discussing various topics.”

“After our beautiful encounter, The President saw me to the door and still spent minutes to speak on important issues. Thank you sir,” he wrote.

  1. This is the same Buhari some critics branded as a tyrant, an autocratic leader. Mr. President, I salute your large heart and willingness to accommodate constructive criticism. Please, keep it up.
