One of the leading aspirants for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairmanship seat Chief Bode George has withdrawn from the race.
George, who is a member of PDP Board of Trustees, made this announcement during a conference in Abuja on Friday.
The convention is billed to take place on Saturday, Dec. 9 at Eagle Square, Abuja.
George, one of the nine contenders for the position, has been vehement in the call for the resignation of the caretaker committee Chairman, Ahmed Makarfi, accusing him of skewing the chairmanship position against other eight candidates in favour of one.
He, however, said he did not withdraw for any candidate.
He said he was withdrawing from the race on a matter of principle, saying it was wrong for the party not to have micro-zone the office of the national chairman.
