One of the aspirants for the post of the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Bode George has said he stands a better chance of piloting the affairs of the party with his experience and wisdom.
He made this known in Abuja after being cleared by the Screening Committee ahead of Saturdays’s Convention.
Speaking with journalists, George said: “I have been tested. I have passed through crisis in the past with the party. And I stand to be corrected if there is anybody that has served ten years.
“It’s not an apprenticeship time now. There is no time for experimentation. We have just a year to the full national election. We cannot afford to have a new hand managing any part of the party from the ward to the local government, or to the highest level. That is what we are bringing.
“The party went through crisis and we are lucky we survived. Now so, we’ve been given a second chance. We can’t afford to mess it up.
The age question…
When questioned about his age, he queried ” Are Dokpesi and Daniel in their twenties?,”
“When you talk about age, see this grey hair , is like a bank account. What you store there, memory, experience and wisdom are what you will use when you have crisis like this.
“Remember, the ultimate measure of a man is not where he is when there is peace, but where he stands in times of crisis,” he stated.
