Labour Party Has No Solid Root – Bode George

Bode George, a former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says Labour Party (LP) has no solid root, lacks the robust structure needed to succeed in national elections, The Herald reports.

Speaking to a group of PDP members gathering for reconciliation, George said the party was considering welcoming Peter Obi back into the fold following his campaign as the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in 2023.

According to George, the PDP is a well-known party, unlike the Labour Party, which he said has no solid roots.

“The Labour Party doesn’t have the root. I have traversed every state in the country; there is nowhere you will not know or hear about our party because it carries the full colour of Nigeria.

“The LP was a movement; they don’t have a solid root. LP came out of anger; it doesn’t have the ‘kind of root we have. LP is a wind. Where was Obi? We can still talk to him if he wants to.

George also stated that a candidate from the North should not be the PDP’s choice for president in 2027, highlighting the need to have a candidate from the South.

He stressed that PDP members should support a candidate from the South to contest and defeat the APC candidate in the 2027 elections.

George concluded by stating, “Until 2031, nobody should think of contesting for the presidential ticket of our party from the North. The real elders in our party should stand up and tell the truth.”
