Ex presidential aspirant, publisher and journalist, Chief Dele Momodu, has traced his steps back to politics, by joining force with the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“…I am happy to declare that I am now a full-fledged participating member of the great and patriotic Peoples Democratic Party.”
Momodu made his move known to media men in the released Statement on Friday, October 29th.
Momodu stated that, the reason for his move is because,
“I have consulted widely. And it is clear to me that, given the dangerous and disastrous drift that our nation has experienced in the past six years, the only party from which amends can be made to rectify our situation is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)”
He lamented the steady decline in the overall development of things in the country under the President Buhari led All Progressives Congress, (APC) government.
In his opinion,
“This accords with my vehement opposition to the policies and practices of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and its leadership, which has denuded our country of everything we hold dear – national unity, cohesion, security, economic prosperity, educational advancement, social infrastructure, and above all, our cherished moral values.
The publisher cum journalist added,
“It is deeply saddening and regrettable that some of the biggest and landmark achievements recorded under the PDP administration have been diluted, wasted, or diminished by the present APC government.”
Momodu who believed his decision to ally with PDP is a good one, assured Nigerians that he is ready to contribute his quota to the growth and development of the country, soon after settling down as a card carrying member of the PDP.
