Ovation publisher Dele Momodu says he defected from the ruling APC to the PDP because President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime is ruining Nigeria.
“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,” said Mr Momodu in a statement.
He added, “I am happy to declare that I am now a full-fledged participating member of the great and patriotic Peoples Democratic Party.”
Mr Momodu claimed that since assuming power six years ago, the APC had led Nigeria down a terrible path. He accused the APC of stripping the country of everything it holds sacred, including national unity, educational advancement, economic prosperity, security, and social infrastructure.
“I have consulted widely,” he explained. “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).”
