A chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George, has said that if members of the party cannot unify it at the moment, there is no guarantee that the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, can unify Nigeria when he becomes president.
George was commenting on the crisis rocking the party during an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today.
On Wednesday, some members of Wike’s team vowed not to join Atiku campaign council until the party’s Nationla Chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, resigns. But Atiku said he would not prevail on Ayu to step aside.
Speaking on the TV programme, George said, “Our candidate has this onus; he said that he is a unifier. If we cannot unify our party at this small level, what is the guarantee that when he gets there he will be ready to unify this country. Otherwise you will be talking of constitution.”
He stated that he was not consulted for nomination of members from Lagos State into the campaign council.
He added, “Was I consulted for nomination from Lagos State? All the other people were they consulted? If you want to do it on your own, good luck to you. Those are the things that we notice and we now decided that if they don’t want to us to participate in the national campaign then we must go back to the public and let them know.”
