PDP at ‘cliff of disaster’ – Bode George

Chief Olabode George, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday bemoaned what he described as the ignoble status of his party, expressing that PDP was precariously placed at the ‘cliff of disaster.’ He said from his own prism, the party had lost the focus and the vision that once earned it the glory.

George, a pioneer member of the PDP and also a national Vice Chairman spoke further that confusion engulfed the party, mourning what he described as the absence of semblance of clarity and lack of visible and acceptable guiding momentum to move the party beyond the ‘cliff of disaster.’

“It is as if we are all frozen in a grand confusion and imperilled by our own collective contributions to the present crisis,” George lamented calling for the leaders and supporters of the party to stand firm and be counted on the path of justice. He pointed out that it was high time stakeholders in the party took redemptive steps to salvage it.

He continued: “There are too many appealing choices. But we must stand firm and fast. We must make a stand to confront the maladies now confronting our party. We must be counted to be on the righteous and the redeeming side of history.

“We must take the hard and the most enduring choice. We must never shy away from the bitter truth. We must talk to one another with sincerity of purpose and with constant purity of focus. There are no pretences anymore.
He advised that the party should retrace its step by ensuring discipline and unity among members, adding that: “We have derailed in a mournful way from guidance, the nuance and the formative directions of the party’s founding fathers. We have upturned and disturbed the normal building blocks and the structures of an orderly organization.”
