Why I considered leaving PDP -Chief Bode George



A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George, says he almost left the party over the alleged poor management of the party.

He said  the National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus-led national working committee turned the party into a “private enterprise”.

The chieftain, however, said he had no intention to join another political party after leaving the opposition party.

He also said the crisis rocking the opposition party is that political bigwigs in the party are  jostling for shares of its structure ahead of the 2023 polls.

George, said this in an interview with Channels Television, he said: “As an elder, as a leader of this party, and as somebody who served for ten years at the NWC, I saw the platform of our party wobbling. You cannot do anything meaningful when your party is not stable.

“What I will tell Nigerians is this: today is a special day in the annals of the PDP’s history.

“That the elders, having considered, having seen what is going on in the party, decided to save the party because the founding fathers have a certain mission and that mission is so vital for the Nigerian state. We have been giving very adequate solid issues on national matters and we did it.

“It (PDP) became so petty and so rowdy. When you disregard the ground norm, the constitution of the party, then what are you doing? You are translating it as if it is your private company.

“We saw this and I won’t like to go further into the debris and filth.

“The way they were managing the party fell short of seriousness. So as a concerned member, I was thinking that I should leave the party and go home and rest because I won’t join any party after PDP.”
