The former president said he was working with other stakeholders to ensure that the party was well organised to take back power.
Promising that the mistakes of the past would not be repeated, Jonathan advised the party to take steps to regain the confidence of the electorate.
Earlier, George congratulated the former president on his 60th birthday.
George urged the ex-President to ensure that the PDP emerged stronger from the forthcoming national convention slated for December 9.
