If the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) really wants to solve the challenges facing it, as well as remain relevant outside the South South, then it should simply pick its chairman from the South West. Since its establishment, a candidate from the South West has never been chairman of the party, and not allowing a candidate from that region become chairman is like saying that the region does not matter to the party.
At the moment, the list of prospective candidates for the chairmanship position from the South West is interesting. We have Chief Olabode George, Mr Jimi Agbaje, Chief Gbenga Daniel, Professor Tunde Adeniran, Professor Wale Oladipo, among others.
Anyone who becomes the chairman among these candidates will definitely unite the party and reposition it for future challenges.
It is as a result of this that I want to call on all players in the ongoing crisis to drop their selfish ambitions and allow an impartial candidate from the South West take over.
