Nigerian Political Parties Lack Ideological Differences, Says Bode George

A member of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Bode George, believes political parties in the country lack ideological differences.

He said this during his appearance
onChannels Television’s political flagship programme, Sunday Politics in Lagos.
“For me, if you look at the Nigerian politics, all political parties don’t have ideological differences – where you say far-right, far-left or centre-right, centre-left – we don’t have that,” the PDP chieftain said.
He also described the recent defection of dozens of members of the National Assembly from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to his party as ‘very good indeed’.
The erstwhile PDP National Vice-Chairman in the South-West noted that most of the defecting lawmakers were members of the opposition party who decided to return home after trying their luck somewhere else.
He was confident that the PDP has the capacity to contain the crisis that led to the exit of the lawmakers from the APC, having learned from their mistakes.
“You can’t but have such crisis and what will be the measure of the managers?” George asked, stressing that it was the capacity to handle and resolve the crisis.
“The PDP is not a contraction; the PDP is not a congregation of strange bird fellows, we have our methodologies. We have a concept, the concept by which this party was established are still there.”
