PDP will snatch Lagos from APC in 2027 – Bode George

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has vowed to takeover Lagos State in 2027.

This is even as the opposition party has begun moves to reconcile all aggrieved individuals within its fold ahead of the 2027 general election.

PDP chieftain, Chief Bode George, disclosed this during an interview with AriseTV on Tuesday night.

George said the PDP had not been functioning well in Lagos state because its structure had been weakened.

He also blamed the situation on the absence of a leader who will serve as a rallying point in the chapter.

However, after several indoor meetings, some stakeholders of the party last Wednesday held a reconciliatory meeting to put the state chapter of the party in order ahead of the 2027 general election.

At the stakeholders’ meeting, which was held in Ikeja, the party chieftains stressed the need for forgiveness and unity within the party to increase the party’s chances at the forthcoming elections.

Shedding light on the series of efforts made at uniting the party ahead of the 2027 elections, the party stalwart noted that there was light at the end of the tunnel.

He, however, admitted that though there were some pockets of aggrieved members yet to be sorted out, the reconciliatory process was making meaningful headway.

“In any organisation, any political party, you will have a kind of turmoil immediately after you lose an election; but the ability of the party and the managers of the party to get everybody back to a discussion table where we will do an in-depth postmortem analysis of what happened,” George said.

“How did we lose the elections, who were the people who were committed and loyal to the party, who were the other people who didn’t perform, who are the other people who are pretending that they are members of your party when they are working for your opposition?

“This is what we are going through now and I’m very happy that yesterday’s meeting in Ibadan that was chaired by the governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, and with all the other leaders from all the states of the Southwest came out to be a brilliant move.

“It shows that we still have leaders with the ability to rise above the pettiness, the inuendos of those who are struggling to get into positions in the party. You’ve got to work for it.”

Speaking further, George affirmed that efforts at ensuring the party was well-positioned for the 2027 general elections have been so far successful.
