The Lagos State Chapter of the PDP on Sunday night endorsed Chief Olabode George as their preferred candidate for the National Chairmanship position during the forthcoming December 9 National Convention of the party. The State Chairman of PDP, Dr Moshood Salvador, gave the certification at a feedback meeting between George and members of the party, held at the party’s secretariat in GRA, Ikeja.

George had been on a campaign in the Southern states of the country to seek support for votes ahead of the National Convention. There are about eight aspirants jostling for the National chairmanship seat of the party from the south. They include the former Governor of Ogun State, Chief Gbenga Daniel; former Minister of Education, Prof. Tunde Adeniran; former Minister of Youth Development, Prof. Taoheed Adedoja; and former Lagos State PDP governorship candidate, Mr Jimi Agbaje.

Others are Prince Uche Secondus, a former acting National Chairman of PDP, and Chief Raymond Dokpesi. Salvador said, “On behalf of Lagos PDP, we must vote for Chief Bode George come Dec. 9; the Southwest is the rightful region to have the chairman of our great party.
