A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olabode George, has stated how the party can reclaim power from the All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2019.
George said appointing a credible person as national chairman would determine the performance of the party in the 2019 presidential elections.
The former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, said that it was necessary for the national leadership to appoint a credible person to lead its party.
He declared that for the party to appoint someone, who had no understanding of the direction and manifesto of the party would be catastrophic for the it in the 2019 general elections.
According to him, “The chairmanship position coming to the South means if the party is serious, the party must look for a credible, responsible and respectable person, who has the network and experience.
“It has to be a person who has the details of the party and not some ’bambino.’
“The PDP must avoid going from frying pan to fire and bring an appropriate person.
“Anybody lower than the level of the chairman of APC will be inappropriate. We have to get somebody that will be at par in political experience and understanding of the tenets of the party.’’
On the recent fight between the Segun Adewale and Moshood Salvador factions of the party in Lagos, the PDP chieftain told the police to bring all those involved in the fracas to book.
He, however, called on party members to work together for the benefit of the party, saying that the party would not condone indiscipline among its members.
