The former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Bode George, says the party may lose the next presidential election if they continue to disregard or fail to address the feeling and grievances of ‘alienation’ being presently experienced by the entire Southern population of this great country. If this issue is dismissed, we cannot expect votes from them. He also advised the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, to resign.
Addressing issues facing the party, George says, in May this year, we elected our presidential candidate in the person of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, setting aside the principle of rotation as enshrined in the constitution of our party in the interest of peace and unity of our party. Today, we are in a situation in which our National Chairman is from the same zone as our presidential candidate.
Speaking further in the press conference, George said, the party should be seen to pursue noble causes and not ethnic agenda. Ethnic groups in this country are at the precipice of collapse. It has never been this bad historically and Nigerians are waiting for us to change the situation for the better.
He concluded by saying, not until the party returns to the founding fathers principles of unity, with equity, fairness and justice, ensuring broad-mindedness to accommodate the concerns of all zones in this country PDP becomes vulnerable to disaster in the 2023 elections.
