As the 2023 general elections draw nearer, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Bode George, has urged aggrieved members of the party to sheathe their swords for the benefit of the party.
The Southwest chieftain of the PDP asked Atiku Abubakar the party’s presidential candidate, to reach out to angry members of the platform.
George, who pleaded with Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State to continue to show interest in the party’s affairs, also urged the party’s National Chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, to honour his promise and resign.
Speaking at a press conference held at his residence in Ikoyi, Lagos, George said, “Ayu once said if the presidential candidate should emerge from the North, he’ll resign. I want to take on him for his word. Why are you now trying to reverse the role? Your word must be your bond.
“However, I appeal to all sides to sheathe their swords.
“It’s absolutely necessary and makes a lot of sense for the candidate who wants to wear the big crown, Atiku Abubakar, to start the networking of people and multiple congregation of efforts that’ll make the party succeed.
