May 10, 2024 | Politics | 0 comments

Bode George, an esteemed figure in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has come forward to support the controversial appointment of Nyesom Wike, the former Governor of Rivers State, as Minister of the Federal Capital Territory in the administration led by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Speaking in an interview on Arise TV, George highlighted Wike’s loyalty to the PDP, noting that despite his appointment in the APC-led government, Wike remains a steadfast member of the PDP. He referenced historical instances where members of different parties served in administrations led by opposing parties, citing the example of Chief Bola Ige, who held a key position in the government of President Olusegun Obasanjo despite being a member of the Alliance for Democracy.

George emphasized that serving in the APC government doesn’t imply Wike’s departure from the PDP, asserting that there are internal matters within the party that need resolution. He reiterated Wike’s commitment to the PDP cause and dismissed any notion of him working against the party.

Addressing internal strife within the party, particularly in Ondo State, George advocated for adherence to the party’s constitution. He applauded efforts, like the recent meeting in Oyo State chaired by Governor Seyi Makinde, aimed at resolving internal conflicts.

Responding to criticisms about the PDP’s organizational structure in Lagos State, George disagreed with assertions made by Adetokunbo Pearse, another party leader. He stressed the importance of discipline within the party and assured that leadership is actively engaged in implementing reforms to strengthen the party’s position.

The PDP has been grappling with internal tensions, notably between former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and Nyesom Wike, who have pursued divergent agendas. Wike’s alignment with the G5 governors and other stakeholders within the party has led to conflicting interests, particularly evident in their stance against Atiku during the 2023 presidential election.
