A former presidential candidate, publisher, and journalist, Dele Momodu, Friday, re-entered politics, as he joined the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP)
Momodu announced this in a statement on Friday.
He said he joined politics following his decision to contribute meaningfully to the development of the country.
He said: “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 said in the statement released on Friday morning.
“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 said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has failed in delivering democratic dividends to Nigerians, even as he noted that the PDP has landmark achievements to show for their 16-year rule.
“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 added
