Lagos PDP Elders Tackle Bode George Over Comment On Obasanjo

Published

on

bode-georgeElders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State have berated a chieftain of the party, Chief Olabode George, for his comments on former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

In a statement by Prof Tunde Olayinka, the elders said: “Whilst we are shocked at Chief Obasanjo’s action since an elder statesman is expected to be politically matured, we condemn in totality the words of Bode George, who called the former President an ingrate.

“Bode George is the ingrate not Obasanjo. He lacks the moral right to insult the PDP’s National Leader, his benefactor and former godfather.

“The Yoruba have a saying that a river that forgets its source will dry up forever. Obasanjo made Bode George who he is today.

“We want to recall that Bode George met us in PDP. He did not attend the April 1999 Jos convention, which delivered Obasanjo.

“When Bode George joined the PDP, he was not recognised. At that time, Sarunmi was the PDP arrowhead in Lagos.

“At the PDP Congress in October 1999 held at 1, Akilo Street, Ikeja, Obasanjo sent a directive to the delegates that Bode George should be imposed as the National Vice Chairman (Southwest) and Alhaji Murtala Ashorobi should be the Lagos State Chairman.

“Sarunmi became a minister at the time and Obasanjo told everybody that Bode George was his eyes and ears and anybody who did not want him should leave the PDP.

“Had he risen through the party hierarchy as required, he would not disrespect or misunderstand democratic norms.

“He presides over the Lagos PDP affairs with military precision.

“Why does Bode George try to play god all the time? He has deceived Jonathan and is still deceiving him.

“Bode George is not our arrowhead and we reject him as a leader. He does not represent our views.

“He is a beneficiary of the crisis between Obasanjo and Jonathan so he should stop fanning the embers of discord”.

    Prof, go and work and deliver your party and stop raking up mud. Obasanjo was not even an original member of the group that founded the PDP. Having been released from prison he was imposed on the party and he drove away all the original members except the sensible Lamido. Obasanjo is a use and dump leader. No need to cry for him. Na monkey dey take him hand kill himself.

    I wonder why that prisoner was jam-talked that way,Somebody who suppose to rot in jail baba Obasanjo is an eminent personality in the world not to talk of Nigeria. The reason why he ciritices Jonathan & tore his PDP membership card is well known to all Nigerian with a very good working sense of direction & natura justice & these are what our people like Bode George lack. I can’t blame Bode George & his cohort they all believe that stealing is a corruption & that is why they wine & dine in it. But an Elderly Father like Obasanjo won’t open eyes & be looking at way they are stearing the affairs of this country to the port of doom instead of harbour of hope. Things must not continue this way.
