Dele Momodu Defends Peter Obi: Questions Calls for Treason Charges


Dele Momodu, a prominent figure within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has responded to the call by Senator Surajudeen Ajibola Basiru, the National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), for the federal government to prosecute Peter Obi, a member of the Labour Party (LP), for treason.

Political Controversy Unveiled:

Senator Basiru had recently asserted that it was time to examine some of Peter Obi’s statements, potentially involving the Attorney General of the Federation.

Momodu’s Perspective:

Dele Momodu took to his Instagram handle to share a picture of Bashiru and voiced his concerns.

He lamented that politicians were now issuing threats against Nigerians who peacefully express their opinions.

Recalling Political History:

Momodu delved into recent political history and recalled the rise of President Bola Tinubu, emphasizing that Tinubu had gained popularity through his relentless criticism of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

This opposition to dictatorship contributed significantly to Tinubu’s prominence.

Questioning Treason Charges:

Dele Momodu questioned the rationale behind calls for Peter Obi to be charged with treason merely for asking pertinent questions.

He raised concerns about the potential shift from military tyranny to civilian dictatorship in Nigeria.

A Warning Against Hero Worship:

In his closing remarks, Momodu warned against the resurgence of dangerous hero worship and urged vigilance in safeguarding democratic principles in the nation.


The clash of perspectives between Dele Momodu and Senator Basiru highlights the ongoing tensions in Nigerian politics, particularly surrounding the freedom of expression and the potential prosecution of Peter Obi.

This incident underscores the importance of open and respectful dialogue in the country’s political landscape.
