The former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, has called members of the party to be committed to reinforcing the party, so that it does not collapse.

He gave the advice at a reconciliation meeting of leaders and elders of the party held at Ikeja, Lagos on May 1st 2024.

Chief George urged members of the party to use the opportunity of the reconciliation to move the party forward to avert imminent disaster.

Elders and leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, including former Deputy National Chairman of the party, Chief Olabode George; former minister, Dr. Abimbola Ogunkelu; Hon. Phillips Aivoji; and Alhaji Muritala Ashorobi, among others, urged for true reconciliation within the fold on Wednesday, saying that the approaching 2027 general election is another golden opportunity for members to bury their differences and put on their thinking caps.

He appealed to members of the party not to allow themselves to be divided, rather they should come together and change the narrative by forgetting their differences in the interest of the party.

“If PDP collapses today, Nigeria may also collapse because this party is the engine room of our country.

“We should avoid a situation in which some members will move out of the party or mobilise Lagosians to vote for another candidate in 2027.

“PDP members should not be seen as enemies of the party and the state. This is the time to start serious reconciliation,” George said

He urged leaders and members of the party to respect the party constitution because lack of respect for it is the bane of the problem in the party.

He also enjoined leaders of the party to allow democratic principles excel in picking candidates for election and shun the ideas of imposing candidates.

In his welcome address, the Lagos state chairman of the PDP, Hon. Philip Aivoji said, the essence of the meeting was to ensure peace reign in the party and chart a roadmap for a cohesive party.

“It is crucial to emphasize unity among party members, to set aside differences and move forward. Internal conflict has weakened the party, and it has affected its progress and capacity building for members, unity is important we should put personal interest aside we must prioritised unity.”
