"I" in 51:50 is Muhammad, pbuh. See also 51:50-55 below. All 6 verses together make it clearer.

So, flee to Allah. Indeed I am a plain warner sent by Him for you. (50) And do not make up any other god along with Allah. Indeed I am a plain warner sent by Him for you. (51) In similar way, no messenger came to those before them, but they said, ?(He is) a magician or a madman.? (52) Have they handed down this (saying) to each other as a legacy? Rather they are a rebellious people. (53) So, turn away from them, for you are not blamed. (54) And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers. (55)

Peace,
Khalil

It can be understood as Prophet Muhammad. If so, there should be quotation marks, which is what God orders Muhammad to say to his people.
There is no god except God
