PDP disintegrate more as Bode George also fights Ayu, like Wike

Seems the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is getting divided the more, as a respected Chieftain of the party, Bode George, just like Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike is fighting the national chairman of the party, Senator Iyorcha Ayu.

George says Ayu must quit before the commencement of electioneering campaigns for 2023 general elections.

George was special guest to Governor Nyesom Wike Thursday at Omerelu, Ikwerre Local Government Area for the inauguration of internal roads constructed by the Rivers State Government.

The chief host, Governor Wike on the occasion also attacked Ayu, accusing the PDP Chairman of ingratitude after he and associates helped to return him as Chairman, adding that nothing will save Ayu from being removed.

Bode George said, “The issue of the Chairman of PDP must be addressed before commencement of campaigns for the 2023 elections. It is an antithesis and against the norms and culture of our party that our presidential candidate, our national chairman and the chairman of the Board of Trustee will come from one section of the country.
“Party members from the south are already feeling alienated. PDP is not a private company. So, before we start the presidential campaign at the end of this month, the National Chairman must go to the South. That is what Governor Wike is saying and as a life member of the Board of Trustees of our party, I support this position 100 percent.

“Statutorily, it is the National Chairman who hands over the party’s flag to our presidential candidate. How will party members from the South feel when they see that at all political rallies Southerners have no public political representation.”
“But we can only go back to Aso Rock if we are united and not divided. Some people are abusing Governor Wike, he is a trouble shooter. Those abusing him, as an elder and as a father in this party, I am directing them, they must stop immediately.

“Because Governor Wike is only fighting for injustice, for equity, for fairness in our party. He is not only a strong pillar in this party, but a mobiliser, a financier and an actualizer. Since he joined the PDP, he has not left this party. Am also in a founding father of the party and since 1998 I have not left this party.”
