PDP crisis: Bode George expresses anger over vote of confidence on Ayu

A former Chairman of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George, has said peace has yet to return to the opposition party because salient issues fuelling the crisis in the party have not been resolved.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that George, in a recent interview with Punch, disclosed that the immediate past Chairman of the PDP BoT, Walid Jibrin, was forced to resign and replaced with Adolphus Wabara, describing last week’s vote of confidence in Iyorchia Ayu by the party National Executive Committee (NEC) as a “shenanigan”.

“I am not too sure peace has returned to the PDP,” George said.

“All those shenanigans that they carried out last week are not going to work. How many people came there? It was more of the northern Peoples Democratic Party versus the southern Peoples Democratic Party. Where is the national PDP?

“I left the meeting when people were making comments that were arrogant. I felt really uncomfortable, instead of telling the man (the truth), they will say ‘nobody like you.’

“So, I got up and walked out because I did not want anything that will spoil my day. I have been in this party since 1998 and I have never seen it this way.

“That is why I said they are trying to divide the party (between the North and the South) and it is very dangerous.”
