Recently, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) faced some challenges that caused divisions within the party. This happened when the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, chose Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate for the upcoming presidential election. This decision led to demands for the resignation of the party’s national chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, by some party members, including former Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike.
Despite these challenges, Bode George, a chieftain of the PDP, remains hopeful and determined to bring the party back to its former glory. Speaking at a PDP general assembly in Lagos, George urged party members to stay strong and assured them that the party would not disappear.
George emphasized the importance of remaining steadfast during difficult times. He encouraged those who have been loyal to the party to continue their support. He promised that efforts would be made to move the PDP forward and regain its lost glory.
George also stressed the need for the party’s national leadership to conduct a thorough review of the past elections and address any issues that affected the party’s performance. This post-mortem analysis will help the PDP resolve its internal problems and strengthen the party for the future.
