A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Chief Ebenezer Babatope, has said that Chief Olabode George is the most qualified person to be the party’s national chairman.
Bode George is battling for the PDP chairmanship position ahead of the party’s December 9, convention.
He said: “How can anyone say George should step down for a more youthful candidate? No, that is wrong, George will never step down for anybody.
“What the party needs at this point in time is someone with maturity, experience and passion to reposition the party and return it to winning ways.
“I can tell you that Chief Bode George is an embodiment of all that. He is experienced, tested and trusted. He is a stickler to the philosophies of the party and he will deliver.
“You see, the elders can’t be governors but they give directions to the youths based on their experience.
“The issue of youthfulness does not come in here; George is the best to lead the party.”
