The Peoples Democratic Party has been warned that it risks losing the 2023 presidential election.
A prominent member and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Bode George gave the warning while speaking with journalists during the week in Lagos.
According to him, the lingering crisis bedevilling the party might cause its defeat in the 2023 presidential election.
He said he supports the call for Iyorchia Ayu to quit his position as the party’s National Chairman.
“We should not allow any sentiment – ethnicity or religion to divide us. Unfortunately, with what we are presently witnessing, our party may lose the next presidential election if we continue to disregard or fail to address the feeling and grievances of ‘alienation’ being presently experienced by the entire Southern population of this great country.
“If this issue is dismissed, we cannot expect votes from them.
“Until this party returns to the founding fathers’ principles of unity, with equity, fairness and justice being the pedestal for any political decision taken in this party, and ensuring broad-mindedness to accommodate the concerns of all zones in this country, PDP becomes vulnerable to disaster in the 2023 elections,” he said.
