George meets northern leaders over chairmanship bid
Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, yesterday met with leaders of the party from the northeast in continuation of consultations with stakeholders over his bid for the chairmanship position.
George met with the zonal executive, led by Ambassador Emmanuel Njuwa, and later with the zonal caucus, as well as Governors Ibrahim Dankwambo (Gombe) and Darius Ishiaku (Taraba).
George, during the meetings, sought their support for his election, promising to reposition and rebrand the party in line with the vision of its founding fathers to accommodate all interests and promote the common good above personal ambition.
He commended the founding fathers for their foresight in introducing the zoning system to give every part of the country a sense of belonging and for their insistence that the party be guided by justice, equity and fairness.
George said with his vast knowledge of the affairs of the party, he is the best material to take it to greater heights and ensure its return to the hearts of the people and to power in 2019.
