Bode George Tells Ayu To Quit As PDP National Chairman

A former deputy national chairman (South) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, has urged the party’s national chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, to honour his promise and resign from office.

 

George said his call to Ayu was predicated on the fact that the party’s national chairman had earlier promised to quit if a northerner like him emerge the PDP’s presidential candidate for the 2023 elections in order to ensure some balance.

He has called on aggrieved members of the party to close rank for the benefit of the party.

 

While urging the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to reach out to aggrieved members of the party, George also appealed to the Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, to continue to show interest in the party’s affairs.

George made his position known on Wednesday at a conference held at his Ikoyi residence in Lagos.

 

He said, “I aspired to serve as national chairman, but had to bury the ambition when it was not zoned to the South-West, contrary to the expectation of party faithful in the region.

“Ayu once said if the presidential candidate should emerge from the North, he will resign. I want to take on him for his word. Why are you now trying to reverse the role? Your word must be your bond.

 

“After the chairman was zoned to the North, the presidential slot should have been zoned to the South. With what the APC has done to Nigeria, zoning is now more important than in 1999.

“However, I appeal to all sides to sheathe their swords. National elections are coming and the party must be ready to convince Nigerians that it can manage the re.s of the country in the best interest of the people.

 

“It is absolutely necessary and makes a lot of sense for the candidate who wants to wear the big crown, Atiku Abubakar, to start the networking of people and multiple congregation effort that will make the party succeed.

“I urge Ezenwo Wike to maintain an abiding interest and fidelity to the PDP which is the best in terms of national outlook, format and reputation. Politicians should bear in mind that in politics, you win some and you lose some.”
