A Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George has warned against calls for the party’s 2023 presidential ticket to be thrown open to all regions of the country.
Bode George Warns PDP Against Open Ticket
The PDP chieftain, who stated this during a chat with Arise TV on Tuesday, warned that failure to zone the presidential ticket means the party is “looking for serious trouble” and would be “roundly defeated” in the 2023 general election.
He said the PDP must “embrace equity, justice and fairness”, adding that throwing the presidential ticket open will “be doing incalculable damage to the psychological minds of the majority of people who are not card-carrying members of the party”.
“If the party decides that, I can emphatically say we are looking for serious trouble and we will be roundly defeated. A warning shot and a good lesson for us to think about,” the PDP chieftain said.
“Let’s think about how this country can grow. Turn by turn Nigeria limited, what’s wrong in doing that. Like I said, it’s not a 100 metres dash race but a continuum. Let there be equity, justice and fairness.
“Let’s not go through that route because we will be doing incalculable damage to the psychological minds of the majority of people who are not card-carrying members of the party.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Bode George had also vowed that he will leave Nigeria if the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu wins the 2023 presidential election.
