Happening Now: Bode George Officially Declares For PDP Chairmanship
The tussle for the chairmanship position of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has started and Mr Olabode George is officially declaring interest in the position.
It is funfair at the event holding at the City Hall in Lagos island area of Lagos State, with some Lagos masquerades entertaining supporters and members of the party that had gathered to witness the event.
Addressing the gathering, the Chairman of Olabode George campaign organisation Ebenezer Babatope told the gathering that George was the most qualified among those aspiring for the post.
This is the time for the PDP to get it right again and this can only be done under the leadership of George, he stated.
Endorsement for Mr George is already coming in, with a former Minister of Information and later Communication, Dapo Sarumi, taking the lead.
He said: "As one of the foundation members of the party, George is better equipped to lead the PDP".
