has re-entered politics and joined Nigeria’s main
opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Momodu announced his move to the PDP in a
statement, explaining that 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
