The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has begun reconciliation of aggrieved members, indicating interest in bringing back the Labour Party (LP) flagbearer in the 2023 presidential election, Peter Obi to its fold.
The PDP made this known on Monday, December 11, during a press briefing in Lagos state to address the party’s internal issues, Newsmen report added.
Speaking on behalf of the PDP stalwarts, Bode George maintained that a southern PDP candidate should be given the party’s presidential ticket, as that is the only way the All Progressives Congress (APC) could be kicked out, Newsmen reported.
George insisted that the LP does not have the structure to win national elections. Hence, Obi should consider returning to the party.
He said: “The Labour Party doesn’t have the root. The LP was a movement; they don’t have a solid root. LP came out of anger; it doesn’t have the kind of root we have. LP is a wind. Where was Obi? We can still talk to him if he wants to.”
