Popular journalist, Dele Momodu has joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Momodu announced his move to the PDP in a statement on Friday.
Giving reason for joining PDP, Momodu said his decision was based on the need to contribute meaningfully to the development of the country.
“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),” part of the statement read.
“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’m happy to declare that I am now a full-fledged participating member of the great and patriotic Peoples Democratic Party.”
Momodu also accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of failure to deliver democratic dividends to Nigerians.
“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.
