PDP Chairmanship: George Urges Makarfi To Exhibit Leadership Qualities
The National Caretaker Committee Chairman of the PDP, Ahmed Makarfi has been accused of bias by one of the aspirants seeking to lead the PDP from December 9, 2017.
Olabode George, a former Deputy National Chairman of the party, had on Tuesday called for the resignation of Makarfi.
Makarfi has, however, insisted he was not going to step down, saying he has done no wrong.
But George in his response on Thursday said the issue he raised recently had to do with what he perceived to be an inadvertent abdication of responsibility by the present managers of the party.
George in a statement through the Director General of his campaign organization, Ibrahim Aliyu, noted that the caretaker committee must exercise equitable, fair and justiceable leadership.
“Our position is that the present superintending leadership of our party should play the original role of spurring and encouraging a balanced, participatory unity wherein every zone within the Nigerian union is given a sense of equitable accommodation and a sense of belonging.
“That is the essence of micro-zoning. If the chairmanship position was zoned to the South-West last year in Port Harcourt in a logical embrace of the dictates of our founding fathers, what has changed now? Frankly, nothing!
“This is the very puzzle that yet confounds everyone. The solution of course, does not reside on the pages of newspapers. We believe we should go back to NEC for a proper and more enduring resolution of the current issue.”
