2011 Presidency: Momodou Or Okotie?

PLEASE VOTE

Who would you rather have as Nigeria's next president : Dele Momodu, IBB, Jonathan, Utomi  or Pastor Chris Okotie ?

Team Momodou with Dele and Bright Ikpechi

Ovation publisher Dele Momodu wants to be Nigeria's next president. A tall ambition huh? But not an impossible one. Some Naija youths have already endorsed him. He will contest under Labour Party of Nigeria. Will you vote for him?

in a sane country ,everyone mentioned has a chance cos they are all vibrant and young to rule our nation Nigeria, but with what we have today in Nigerian a lot of home work has to be done cos the PDP people are still around the corner.

we do not need to be calling these people names, for putting up their intrest to Rule this country, we all had better sit tight , protect our votes and pray to God for a new Nigerian.lets all critcize rightly.

as for me i would not mind a Kris Okotie , he got what it takes to rule , not minding the pastor stuff.

@mike that was a good analysis, non bias as you really hit the nail on the head.

and why exactly are people castigating Okotie?. . . it will be stúpid to think it's because the dude is a Pastor.

@Tru Mantra: a really sensible post you've got sir!\

@Post: If Becomerich is not on the list, then my dream of moving Yorubas and Edos to bayelsa will never be met, and therefore, i'd keep my vote to myself

I still do not get why Nigerians deceive themselves that there is any semblance of practiced democracy in Nigeria. Is it that the failure of our country has so hunted us that we are prepared to cling to fantasies of credible elections so we do not lose our sanity. Lets be clear: Almost no election is free or fair in Nigeria. Election in Nigeria is not a matter of party ideology or candidate capability, its a matter of which party is more able to rig than the other and which judge decides your case at the electoral tribunal. Politicians, especially those in PDP, do not necessarily need your vote to come to power. If they did, they will take the governance of this country more seriously.

i dont know dele momodu and i dont have anything against him. but if he wants to contest and win an election, those whom you put on ur team do count. those you accept their endorsement and do foto ups with matter. this picture on this thread reveals something, dude in the middle of the picture is on the momodu team and was the same dude on the IBB2007 team. i guess dude is just an opportunist who dances to the current drummer and doesnt mind whom the drummer is.

The ONLY THREE people I''ll support are: Donald Duke, Pat Utomi & Chris Okotie in that order.

Duke being the only one tested. All other folks are OLD WINE.

It's becoming clearer President Goodluck will most likely WIN [He will NOT reform our democractic structure because that would clearly play into the hands of the ANTI-INCUMBENT wave flowing through the Nation]

PDP must go!

Please DO NOT SELL YOUR VOTES! not even to SENTIMENTS!

IBB and Jonathan are the only sensible options here. IBB won't have many supporters but he's the most capable. Whether he'll have Nigeria's interest at heart remains to be seen so why take the chance? Jonathan then seems the next best option. Dele is just a punk. As is Okotie. Pat is refined, I think, but it takes a lot of guile to rule this here country. He doesn't seem to have plenty of that.

I watched Okotie's interview on one TV station and I was disappointed because the man could not answer simple questions. He could not sell his ideas if he had any. he spent all the time criticizing the PDP. I won't vote fr any aspirant who is unable to tell me what he will do about the myriads of problems facing theis country especially the power sector.

Good grief, I can't believe this! Momodu or Kris Okotie for president?! What are we going to hear next?

It only shows the abyssmal level of pathethic, leprous, lascivious decay and bastardisation that the exalted office of Predidency has descended in the contrivance called Nigeria.

I won't be shocked if we wake up tomorrow and we hear that Baba Suwe, Pasuma, Obesere, Saheed Osupa, Tuface, Usuofia or Aki and Pawpaw or Jim Iyke have all declared their intention to run for presidency in 2011!

Only God Almighty can save this Sodom and Gomorrah called Nigeria.

My preferred candidate would be Donald Duke. I witnessed the transformation of Cross River state during his tenure. For me, the next president should be an individual that has demonstrated his proficiency at the national or state levels.

Here are my opinions about the names on the list;

Pat Utomi: His experience in the corporate world via Volkswagen Nigeria, while useful, does not demonstrate adequate administrative ability as the organization failed while he was at the helm. Still, his credibility is unquestionable and having him as president would guaranty a change in direction for Nigeria.

Dele Momodu: Unlike several other people, I do not hold running Ovation against him. Rather, it demonstrates his ability to identify and make use of opportunities even in challenging situations. This is a trait that the next Nigerian president cannot do without. Still, his sub-par articles for Thisday as well as his annoying name dropping do not endear me to him. I cannot honestly say that he strikes me as having the character and vision required to be our commander-in-chief.

Chris Okotie: Many have castigated him simply for being a pastor. This is simply wrong. The fact that he is a man of the cloth (kinda) does not mean that his aspirations need remail in that area only. He has been an outspoken critic of bad governance for several years and has been actively involved in community service via his church, The Household of God. To his credit, he is eloquent and adept at communicating ideas. This is an invaluable ability in a country like Nigeria where IBB has been described as a charismatic leader. I would love to hear Okotie address the UN as president of Nigeria and I am sure that many on this forum would as well, even if only to experience the grammatical onslaught that he would unleash.

Still, it must be said that his administrative abilities have not been proven on a national or even state level. HIs church does not have branches as far as I know and it is likely that as president he will be unable to hit the ground running. His party will also face the challenges that every "regional" part does and this is a minus.

IBB: Anyone who votes for IBB is either suffering from Amnesia, has been bribed or is guilty of gross and unforgivable ignorance.

Goodluck Honathan: His actions since becoming president have sometimes appeared to be impulsive and improperly informed. In addition, he is a part of the PDP. By default, I will not vote for anyone that flies the PDP flag. Still, he has displayed the admirable quality of being a good listener. Nigerian leaders are known for turning a deaf ear to their followers or not having ears at all. I would prefer that he ensures that INEC conducts a credible election ad thus leaves his footprints in the sands of Nigeria's time. One year in office is enough for this perhaps well meaning but unelected president and his party. The PDP has to go!

In all, I would like to see a series of debates where these candidates would face off against each other. A scenario where different experts constitute a panel that poses relevant questions would be ideal. What plans do they have for diversifying Nigeria's economy and moving away from a crude oil centered economic policy? How do they plan to tackle the infrastructure challenges that their predecessors have failed to deal with? What is their position on the Constitution and making the necessary amendments? Can they outline their plans for building or repairing the Nigerian identity at home and abroad? And finally, how do they intend to solve the problem of the absence of a national identification scheme that allows for up to date information on the citizens and resident of Nigeria?

People, I hope that our election year will bring great surprises!

Dele Momodu may be an underdog right now but time will tell. My first pick is GJ, because the power of incumbent is huge. After that is Dele Momodu. He is more appealing to every corner of Nigeria than Pat Utomi. First of all, he's from Edo, second of all he's more of Yoruba [I guarantee him 60% of Yoruba votes, he's both Christian and Muslim (he will appeal to atleast 40% of the Northerners and then the least group that will never vote for him still has 10% of theirs to vote for him because of their son [Basket-mouth]. Utomi will never win presidency in Nigeria, he will only have huge votes nowhere more than Iboland. The South-south people know that the camaraderie between them and Ibos is just an affected interplay between any prey and predator out there. It’s amazing that despite the malicious moves by some faceless people to portray heroic stunts of Dele Momodu as villain (airoju and airaye ko ni je ki gbogbo won se gbaun gbaun kiri jigba – nitori Dele, se emu pe opon ti sun ni?), he has never been alleged for any malfeasance or venal malpractices order than using his God-given adroit and cumbersome prolific instincts. Dele’s case wasn’t like those opportunists out-there, he became success; virtually by dints of much hardworking. For those out-there pointing fingers and dubbed Dele as "Idolizing Pen-Robbers," why can’t you blame FORBES MAGAZINE too? It lists Columbian, Mexican drug-barons and other people with questionable acts on its 2010 world billionaires’ pyramid. I am still thinking who will get my vote comes 2011, my heart tickling with GJ’s ineptitude and that requires one’s to question the authenticity of his Ph.D – but guess what it’s in Zoology though, he supposed to be in Yankari Game Reserve talking care of our endanger wild animals [it’s only in Nigeria goats kill Lions]. I want to give him the benefit of doubt till December this year.

It's not that I don't have issues with your perception of the other Gentlemen, but to say that Obj was inept and lacked vision is nothing but a sweeping unsubstantiated/tested statement . Think again my brother. We may not have liked some of his policies or his person or temperament but I think He deserves better than you 're handing him unless you can come-up with yard-sticks, facts and figures, o.k.

But he will try as a leader . Chris Okotie , eloquent, dapper and  a ladies man any day, but is that what nigeria really needs? Who is Dele Momodu ? Ok I remember that boot licker who collects money from our thieving politicians in the name of a magazine. ( thiefu thiefu jankoliko)  Please who ever that knows this Sabongida Ora man should warn him to mind his Ovation business. Before we know it now , Bisi Olatilo will declare his presidential ambition too what a joker.

momodou is always looking washed out and okotie may be fresh but not what naija needs. How do we raise idiagbong from the dead or better let one arise on horse back with an armoure.that is the hand, migthy that naija needs. The rest of the political contenders have been tried and tested, they all failled especialy O.U.K. who messed up Abia state. The lucky Jona, if he can swallow the fish will have our botes.

Dele Ko, Momodu ni. Nobody knows him plssssssssssssss

IBB is just trying reclaim populance. He is a failure.

Okotie is a big time comedian. Joker of the highest order

Utomi is educated but lacks administrative value. He is not well-known in 9ja politics

G. Jonathan is better of but still need ideas

If am to vote, i will go by Goodluck Jonathan because he has ears of listening.

Pat Utomi has my voted anyday and it is very worrisome that some many folks here prefer GJ. The man has proved to be worse than Yara-dull, by his wasteful spending and hidden embezzlement. I wonder when Nigerians will ever learn.

I hope and pray and wish that Dele Momoudu will not become the president of naija

He does not appeal to the youth at any level

I know the country has done many wrong things but if Nigeria can vote a man who made his money by "Idolising Pen-Robbers" is made president of the country then we might as well all just move enmass to Ghana and allow naija to rot more

have you guys read the "amala jounalism" that the guy uploads weekly on thisday, utter tosh in all angles

He always keeps going on how he sat in first class and saw XYZ and how he stayed in this or that hotel

And then goes on to vilify nigeria yet he still uses those his 35mm to take picrures of them

I despise Bob Dee,,,,,very much

Pat Utomi ##Not so popular. Not a really tested administrator. The Volkswagen collapse is a test case

Dele Momodou ## No Chance. Dele can sell his children cos of money and popularity. He is an owanbe man like Alao-Akala.

Kris Okotie ## He is a confused joker. No chance.He needs to seek the face of God first.

IBB## Wicked and mean. His only obstacle is GEJ

Goodluck Jonathan ## May eventually win, but may beat OBJ's record in terms of ineptitude and lack of vision

@poster

Try to avoid the name "IBB" to presidency in your subsequent post or poll.

The inclusion of IBB makes the list look funny, useless and non-serious.

Always fight to avoid the name.
