PDP chairman: Agbaje picks nomination form… says he ‘ll resolve issues with Bode George


By; SUNDAY ODE, Abuja.
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Lagos in the 2015 general election, Jimi Agbaje, said on Tuesday that he would sort out the issue of contesting for the chairmanship of the party with Chief Bode George.
Agbaje spoke in Abuja when he picked the nomination form to contest for the chairmanship of the PDP in the scheduled August 17 national convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.
George, a former national official of the PDP who is also believed to be Agbaje’s political mentor is said to be eyeing the chairmanship position in the coming convention.
Fielding questions from newsmen after picking the form, the former PDP governorship aspirant said: “Leave that to us. We’ll resolve it at home.”
The chairmanship aspirant also vowed that if elected, he would ensure that the opposition party won back all the states it had lost to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last general election.
He also stated that he did not belong to any faction of the party but one who believed that “PDP should be all inclusive,” emphasizing that “we must win back the states we lost in 2015.”
Agbaje said he was out to restore stability to the party.
On the current micro-zoning controversy trailing preparations for the convention, Agbaje noted that the larger south to which the national chairman position had been zoned was only trying to see if it could get any consensus.
He pointed out, however that, “its not good to have consensus all the time.”
Also on Tuesday, a commissioner from Enugu state, Ude Okoye picked nomination form to contest as national youth leader.
