PDP Chairmanship: George Cautions Party Members
National Chairmanship aspirant in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George has warned party members to refrain from anything that would cause confusion during the upcoming national convention of the party.
George gave the caution at a news conference in Abuja on Thursday after submitting his nomination form for the position.
He said the party could no longer afford further crisis, stressing the need to respect its constitution.
“We have to be extremely careful in managing the December 9 convention; we can no longer afford another crisis.
“Impunity and lack of respect for party constitution must not be allowed’’, he cautioned.
George also advised party delegates not to entrust the leadership of the party into the hands of an inexperienced politician.
He said it would be disastrous to allow someone not grounded in the workings of the party to takeover its control.
The aspirant likened the party to a ship at sea hit with bad weather saying it needed a competent and experienced captain to safely sail it ashore.
The party chieftain said if PDP sank, it could spell doom for the country’s democracy.
George said he was fit, experienced and was presenting himself for the service of the party and the country.
George however dismissed talks of a parallel national convention allegedly being threatened by some renegade members of the party saying that he was not aware of such.
He added: “I don’t know anything about that. I read it like you also read it.
He praised the National Caretaker Committee (NCC) under the leadership of Senator Ahmed Makarfi for their effort in managing the affairs of the party.
