The Lagos State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has constituted its Leaders’ Advisory Council with former Deputy National Chairman of the party, Chief Olabode George, nominated as the “rallying leader” of the party in the state.
The inauguration was part of moves to reposition the party which has wobbled over the years owing to internal crises.
