Bode George, a 74-year-old chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has declared 2023 Presidential ambition.
YaahooJournalist reports that the 74-year-old, a former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, indicated his interest in contesting for the presidency seat in 2023 through The Pathfinder Consortium, a group led by Uthman Shodipe-Dosunmu, George’s special adviser.
The statement released by The Pathfinder Consortium did not reveal what platform George would be running on.
George’s special adviser said the group will soon unveil George whom he described as a pathfinder and “big masquerade” who will bring a new beginning to the country.
His statement came a week after Walid Jibrin, chairman of the board of trustees (BoT) of PDP, said the party will soon commence the search for its 2019 presidential candidate.
According to George’s special adviser, “We will engage, inform without derogatory withdrawal. We will challenge, debate, instruct without angry, expletive crudity. We will sustain and affirm in deliberate Churchillian supremacy,” Shodipe-Dosunmu said.
“Pretenders and the perennial time-servers shall disappear from the fray. Only the robust and lucid patriotic band shall endure.
“And the dark, disruptive uncertainties shall cease, giving way to renewal and rebirth of democratic contention.
“It is settled!!! Our vision is stripped of ethnic or sectarian articulations. It is about rebuilding the broken walls, rectifying the festering wrongs, healing the persisting wounds,” the statement added.
