If the Lagos Chapter of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) were the only chapter saddled with the sole responsibility of appointing a national chairman for the PDP, Bode George would be chairman.

The chapter on Sunday endorsed the candidacy of Olabode George for the National Chairmanship position during the forthcoming December 9 National Convention of the party.

The State Chairman of PDP, Dr Moshood Salvador, gave the certification at a feedback meeting between George and members of the party, held at the party’s secretariat in GRA, Ikeja.

George had been on a campaign in the Southern states of the country to seek support for votes ahead of the National Convention.

There are about eight aspirants jostling for the National chairmanship seat of the party from the south.

They include the former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel; former Minister of Education, Prof. Tunde Adeniran; former Minister of Youth Development, Prof. Taoheed Adedoja; and former Lagos State PDP governorship candidate, Jimi Agbaje.

Others are Prince Uche Secondus, a former acting National Chairman of PDP and Chief Raymond Dokpesi.

Salvador said, “On behalf of Lagos PDP, we must vote for Chief Bode George come Dec. 9; the Southwest is the rightful region to have the chairman of our great party.

“In the last dispensation, Ekiti produced the Vice- Chairman while Osun and Oyo states took the highest office. It is only Lagos that is left and what we want is the chairman.

“The South-East and the South-South have produced a chairman before that is why it is our turn to have the chairman of PDP.”
