Until now, we've had very little about PDP members expressing interest in the 2023 presidential race. The APC on the other hand, has been all over the place as posters of potential candidates to replace president Muhammadu Buhari have been sighted across the country, and on social media.

The PDP had previously debunk reports suggesting that the party would stick to its 2019 zoning arrangement as it heads to the polls in 2023. This perhaps, has given hope to candidates from other parts of the country, to express their interest in vying for the number office in the country.

Among potential candidates from the People's Democratic Party (PDP), to express interest in the 2023 presidential race, is a former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George, according to a report by Daily Trust.

Though the PDP leader in Lagos is yet to formally announce his intention, some of his supporters and close aides have started mobilising for him.

A group known as the Pathfinder Consortium emerged ostensibly to champion the ambition of George, who was one-time PDP Vice-Chairman in the South-West, Deputy National Chairman (South) and Deputy National Chairman in the PDP headquarters.

The group is led by Prince Uthman Shodipe-Dosumu, a Special Adviser to Bode George, as Director-General.

Shodipe-Dosunmu in a statement yesterday tagged: “2023: The Pathfinder is coming”, said a “pathfinder” who is believed to be Chief Bode George “is already warming up.”

The statement read: “The big game is afoot. The Grandmasters are now at the chessboard. The maneuverings are deepening in thoughtful articulations and firm, deliberate commitment.

“The schemings are widening far beyond the bright and the nocturnal passages. It is settled!!!

“Our vision s stripped of ethnic or sectarian articulations. It is about rebuilding the broken walls, rectifying the festering wrongs, healing the persisting wounds.

“The Pathfinder is warming up…… Serious business ! Watch out ! Link up with a New Beginning ! Be a part of a New Vision!

“We are aroused with a bold, audacious and redeeming leadership . We will engage, inform without derogatory withdrawal.

“We will challenge, debate, instruct without angry, expletive crudity. We will sustain and affirm in deliberate Churchillian supremacy.

“Pretenders and the perennial time-servers shall disappear from the fray. Only the robust and the lucid patriotic band shall endure.

“And the dark, disruptive uncertainties shall cease, giving way to a renewal and a rebirth of democratic contention. Soon, very soon, we will unveil the Big Masquerade.”
