Kola Ologbodiyan has spoken severally for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the past. Tuesday, Kola resurfaced on Channels Television. In an interview anchored by Terry Ikumi, Ologbodiyan warns the Bola Tinubu administration against deploying soldiers to the Nigerien border to fight a war…
Ologbodiyan who appeared Tuesday on Channels TV said the consensus on the street shows most Nigerians are opposed to a war with Niger Republic.
Said the PDP member who did not “intend to overheat” the system, “A hungry man cannot fight a war.”
He defended the former Governor of Rivers State, Chief Nyesom Wike who is serving as FCT Minister, saying there is no time Wike has said that “he is not a member of the PDP.”
The one-time image maker dismissed hints that the current governor of Rivers State, Sir Siminalayi Joseph Fubara is not attending meetings called by the party.
Apart from holding the position of the Vice Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, Ologbodiyan insisted, Fubara has been participating in party affairs.
He said he was rather prepared as an individual and a politician to wait for the outcome of matters which are pending in the tribunal to be disposed of instead of overheating the polity by commenting right now on them.
Asked why PDP has been unable to take critical decisions on issues affecting the party such as party discipline, the former Spokesman said the National Executive Committee, NEC, has not met.
Ologbodiyan noted that only NEC has the power to take positions that are not only far reaching but also binding.
The PDP chieftain expressed optimism that the PDP despite what is seen as challenges facing it would remain standing as a national party.
On the forthcoming elections in Kogi, the former Spokesman of the PDP at the national level said there are indications that Senator Dino Melaye could pull off a win in November.
He appealed to voters in Kogi State, regardless of their tribe, religion or creed, to rally round the PDP and ensure through their votes that change comes to the State.
Ologbodiyan refused to discuss the Tinubu administration, refused to join issues with the FCT Minister, but said any government that desperately wants to bring down the cost of governance has no business naming 48 persons as federal ministers.
The former party spokesman affirmed that behind – the – scene talks are going on to reconcile warring groups inside the party.
