George on Tuesday, August 10, noted that at this time, the leadership and ranks of the PDP were unstable which led him to start considering resigning, The Cable also reported.
“As an elder, as a leader of this party, and as somebody who served for ten years at the NWC, I saw the platform of our party wobbling.You cannot do anything meaningful when your party is not stable.
“It (PDP) became so petty and so rowdy. When you disregard the ground norm, the constitution of the party, then what are you doing? You are translating it as if it is your private company."
The PDP bigwig added that if he had left the party, the only destination would have been his home since he cannot join any other political platform.
