Also speaking during the convention, the PDP governorship candidate for the 2015 election in Lagos State and one of the chairmanship aspirants, Mr Jimi Agbaje, said he withdrew from the race to brighten the chances of the South-West.

George said the Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee of the Party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi was wrong not to have insisted on micro-zoning of the relevant positions.

He said: "It appears the PDP is bent on self-destruction, I can't be part of this, the chairmanship position has been sold to the highest bidder". It appears that PDP is bent on self destruction.

George had cited alleged hijack of the chairmanship contest by interests behind Uche Secondus. It has lost its soul.

He, therefore, demanded an apology from Wike over the alleged insult, saying that he would not stand by why insult was heaped on his people. I can not be part of this criminal allegation, the PDP is now mangled.

"But this old, legitimate and morally sound micro-zoning principle has now been trashed, dumped in the waste bin, flung into the gutter by very little men who have compromised the pivotal moral anchor of civilised engagement for temporary selfish gains".

"I hereby withdraw from the fraud".

"What did I say about the Yoruba?" He, however, explained that he did not step down from the race for anybody, but for the process and on principle, adding that his measure of experience was too heavy.

Dokpesi advised the party's leadership to evolve ways of financing it, rather than depending on some of its bigwigs.

He also said George, as one of the founding fathers of the PDP, could not run away from the party.

Wike said this at the Eagles Square in Abuja on Saturday, during the ongoing PDP elective national convention.

Seriake added that leaders of the party would do everything possible to ensure that aggrieved nerves were calmed. Godswill Akpabio said that the party stalwarts were prepared to support and work with whoever emerged as its chairman. Please drop your comment!
