Just In: Dele Momodu Re-Enters Politics, Joins PDP
Momodu announced his move to PDP in a statement on Friday, explaining that his decision was based on the need to contribute meaningfully to the development of the country.
He accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of failing in delivering democratic dividends to Nigerians, maintaining that PDP has landmark achievements to show for their 16-year rule.
It is with a deep sense of responsibility and commitment to a unified and developed Nigeria that I have decided to re-enter the political arena and join the fray of active politicking again.
I have been very frustrated about the state of our country and the manner the ruling party APC has virtually returned and reduced Nigeria to the rubbles of the stone age.
I have decided to stop my perpetual lamentations and join hands with other patriotic Nigerians to rescue our nation from the brink of a calamitous collapse.
Therefore, in line with practicing what I have preached for a few years now, I believe that only by joining mainstream politics and becoming a member of one of the leading opposition parties can I hope to make such meaningful difference as I have been demanding of others.
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).
The publisher thanked the party for accepting him into its fold and hailed PDP members for being steadfast and resolute despite the hurdles stacked against them.
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.
