Veteran Journalist and Publisher of Ovation International, Dele Momodu has announced his return to partisan
Momodu also announced his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).
In a statement released on Friday, Mr. Momodu said he joined the main opposition because it is the only party that can rescue the country from its dangerous and disastrous path set upon by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
“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,” Mr Momodu said.
“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).
“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.”
Momodu was a member of the National Conscience Party(NCP). and was its Presidential candidate in the 2011 presidential election.
