Former Deputy National Chairman, South, of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olabode Ibiyinka George, has ward the party that fielding a Northern presidential candidate in 2027 by the party is a recipe for consignment into the dustbin of history.
George also added that selfishness and greedy on the part of some prominent leaders and members of the party was not only responsible for the party’s loss in the 2023 Presidential election, but have also driven the party to the precipice of looking danger and extinction.
He further averred that unless critical party issues are resolved now, the party may no longer be relevant in 2027.
George said all these while addressing a press conference in his Lugard Avenue office in Ikoyi, Lagos on Monday, alluding to Biblical Gamaliel’s warning to the Council of Leaders in Acts 5:3-5 not to do anything against the disciples of Jesus Christ.
He added that as modern Gamaliel, he is sounding a note of warning that no Northerner will be allowed to be the presidential candidate of the party until 2031.
