Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Olabode George yesterday while addressing a conference at the Lagos PDP secretariat said the party was in ruins and imminent danger because the Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike and Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose are bent in destroying the party.
He said the August 17 convention would have divided the party more, stressing that the convention was hijacked by the two governors to prosecute their 2019 ambitions.
“This is indeed a sad period for the PDP; the sky is dark and bleak. The party is now at the edge of a cliff, dangling before imminent ruins and forfeiture. Our party has lost its soul, its fundamental defining logic of existence, stripped of all values of justice, fairness and equity.
“We thought that the crisis provoked by the issue of Senator Ali Modu-Sheriff would be finally laid to rest after the August 17 convention, but we couldn’t be more wrong.
To be specific Wike and Fayose have both succeeded in forming an unholy alliance against the growth and development of our party.”
He said having reviewed the situation, leaders of the party should never allow Wike and Fayose to come near any crucial decision making process again.
He then submitted by saying:
“Port Harcourt should never be allowed again to host the convention as long as Wike remains governor.
“We are happy the charade was halted in its tracks.
The dubious convention was written, produced, directed and managed by Wike and Fayose. This will never happen again.
“Our party is dying. Benighted and unprincipled men have seized the jugular of our party.”
They are hell bent on destroying what they cannot build.
They have apparently sworn to destroy, to manipulate, to thwart the people’s will and sabotage the cause of democracy,”
