A former deputy national chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George, has insisted that the national chairman of the party, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, must resign for peace to reign.
Speaking with Daily Trust on Tuesday, George noted that Ayu promised to vacate his seat if the party produced a presidential candidate from the North.
He also challenged the PDP national chairman to let his word be his bond, adding that South is not interested in the position of Director General of the presidential campaign council.
“In the interest of equity, fairness and justice, the national chairman should vacate his seat for a southerner.
“I have no apology for what I am saying because if the reverse is the case where you have all the positions in the South, will the North be happy?
āSo, what is good for the goose is good for the gander. The party chairman came out yesterday (Monday) and said he was given a four-year term and that he was not ready to go.
āEven if he was elected today as chairman and the situation in the country changes, the interest of the party should be higher and be respected than the individual interest. The party is not a private company. It is owned by all members,ā he said.
George warned that the PDP must do the right thing if the party is interested in winning the 2023 election.
