A chairmanship aspirant in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)’s December 9 National Convention, George Olabode, has warned against any act that could cause further crisis in party during the event.
Olabode gave the caution at a news conference in Abuja after submitting his nomination form for the chairmanship race.
He said that the party could no longer afford further crisis, stressing the need to respect its constitution.
“We have to be extremely careful in managing the Dec. 9 convention; we can no longer afford another crisis.
“Impunity and lack of respect for the party’s constitution must not be allowed,” he cautioned. He said the party could not afford to entrust its leadership in the hands of novices or someone that had not been part of its management team.
The aspirant likened the party to a ship at sea hit with bad weather saying it needed a competent and experienced captain to sail it safely ashore.
Olabode, who said that he was fit, experienced and was presenting himself for the service of the party and the country, was also of the opinion that if PDP sank, it could spell doom for the country’s democracy.
