Breaking! Dele Momodu dumps Tinubu, joins PDP

By  | 

Veteran journalist and publisher, Dele Momodu has announced his re-entry into the political space ahead of the 2023 polls.

The former presidential candidate, in a statement on Friday, stated that he has joined Nigeria’s main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Momodu explained that his decision was pursuant of the need 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).

“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.”

The veteran journalist, a known ally of the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu who is said to be eyeing the presidency in 2023, berated the party for failing to deliver its campaign promises.

“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.
