Renowned journalist and publisher of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu, has hooked up with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
This was announced in a statement made available to newsmen on Friday in which he explained that he was pushed to re-enter politics on altruistic grounds in order to serve Nigeria to the best of his capacity.
According to the former presidential candidate, “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).”
“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.
“For these reasons, I am happy to declare that I am now a full-fledged participating member of the great and patriotic Peoples Democratic Party.”
He praised the main opposition party, the PDP, for laying down remarkable achievements in their sixteen-year reign in power.
He equally condemned the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for failure in governance and the inability to deliver their campaign promises to Nigerians in the last six years.
“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,” he said.
“I wish to thank the leadership of my party, PDP, for fully accepting me with love and enthusiasm.
“I intend to serve Nigeria from within the PDP with all humility, purpose, vigour, and sincerity in whatever role the party and God deem fit for me,” he concluded.
