“I entered the contest on the micro-zoning principle, which has been thrashed by little men who have compromised. It appears the PDP is bent on self-destruction. I can’t be part of this. The chairmanship position has been sold to the highest bidder,” George stated while a briefing newsmen at his campaign office in Abuja. “I entere

d the race due to the micro zoning arrangement. This micro zoning has been trashed, dumped on the dust bin for personal reason. It appears that PDP is bent on self destruction.

It has lost its soul. “I cannot be part of this criminal allegation. The PDP is now mangled. “I hereby withdraw from the fraud.

  1. Who are the followers of Bode George? Personally i do not believe the Elderly Man (Oga Bode George) has the clout to do the opposition Job in any form. He'll sell out and that's the major reason he cannot be allowed to take the chairmanship position. He may turn out to be another Ali Modu Sherrif.

    1. 1. Your perception is wrong. Looking at all the candidates, who else has the clout more than Bode George? 2. You are not good at history. Over the past 18 years of existence of PDP, who among the candidates that has been so committed to the development and progress of PDP like Bode George?No body. Who among them is so vocal in the media defending the party PDP like Bode George? No body. Bode George has demonstrated unreserved commitment to PDP more than anybody else. I have listen to him on many occasions on TV for many years. His views are intellectually based not arrogance, insult and abuse. For many years Bode George has tried to defend and explain to people why PDD is better than other parties. Even in the time of ACN in South west, Bode George would be sweating it out on TV trying to show why his party is a better party. Wike is too young and inexperience to champion or decide on the leadership of PDP. The emergence of Modu Sheriff as PDP chairman was the handiwork of Wike and Fayose. Bode George's voice was loud and clear in the struggle to retrieve PDP from the grips of Modu Sherrif. Seriously, you are very very,unfair to Bode George by your statement. I don't know him one on one. But when it comes to facts let us say the truth as they are. David
