A former Minister of Transport, Chief Ebenezer Babatope, said on Tuesday the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would regain its voice if the former Deputy National Chairman of the party, Chief Olabode George, leads the party.
Babatope, who spoke during the Bode George Campaign Organisation meeting in Lagos, said the PDP needs an experience leader to pilot its affairs ahead of the 2019 general elections.
He said the party was working hard to resolve all its problems, adding that only tested hands will make the party vibrant ahead of 2019.
He said: “We have absolutely resolved and affirmed that our party can only be enhanced and renewed towards the winning ways only when we bring out the tested, the proven, the matured and the responsible person to lead us to electoral victory in 2019.
“This is not the time for trial and error. This is not the time for some crude illogic experimentation. We dare not fail and we dare not falter. We dare not temporize nor make the wrong move. Chief Olabode Ibiyinka George is now the man of destiny. He is the right choice for our party now in these challenging times.
“I want to be absolutely clear about our purpose here today. What we do here and now is the voluntary collective effort of all leaders of the South West and even beyond who mean well for our party and our nation.
“Nothing here, let me emphasize firmly, has any direct connection with my good friend Bode. This is our own initiative. We are the people drafting Chief Bode George to put his hat in the ring and come out boldly to contest for the position of our national chairman.”
