Bode George’s Support For Rhodes-Vivour, A Trade-off Tactics- Jandor
The JANDOR4Governor Campaign Organization has taken a swipe on Chief Olabode George’s recent comment on a live telecast regarding the root cause of his anti party action prior the gubernatorial election, describing it as a treacherous move unbecoming of an elderstateman .
In a statement signed by the organisation’s Head, Media and Communications of the Lagos PDP gubernatorial candidate Dr. Olajide Adediran, in the recently conducted election, Mr. Gbenga Ogunleye the untoward conducts of Chief George was well enumerated, citing the indications that he had been the main cause of the Lagos State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP’s) seeming poor political fortune over the years.
“Chief George while fielding questions on national television yesterday said he had no regret for supporting and voting for the Labour Party governorship candidate against the candidate of his supposed political party, the Peoples Democratic Party.
“It is public knowledge that Chief Bode George’s modus operand in every election cycle is to deliberately wreak havoc within Lagos PDP and pick up a fight with the governorship candidate of the party to enable his paymaster in the ruling party remain in office.
“This, he has done consistently since 2003 when Funsho Williams contested. He did the same with Musiliu Obanikoro in 2007 and repeated it with Jimi Agbaje in 2015 and 2019 when he ordered PDP members to work for the candidate of another Party, just to divide Lagos PDP and allow the ruling party remain in office.
“It is on record that no gubernatorial candidate of the PDP in Lagos State from the inception of this nascent democracy in 1999 to date enjoyed his support.
“There is a widespread perception among party-faithful and well-meaning Lagosians that Chief George always works against the PDP in every election year to serve the interest of the ruling APC.
“We are not to join issues with him, however, it is important to note that only a treacherous parent like Chief Bode George won’t be proud of JANDOR’s achievement in taking on Lagos slaves’ masters and matching his words with action, as against the likes of Chief Bode George who only come to National TV to speak ill of Lagos Status-quo and do otherwise with ‘a sprinkle of grains of corns’ when it’s time to match their words with actions.
“Chief Bode George has a penchant for referring to his own sons as older than JANDOR but what has any of his sons, as the case may be, have contributed to the upliftment of Lagos?
“No wonder he can’t see anything good in JANDOR (Eni tí kò ní irú eni, kò lè mo yì eni). You can’t value what you don’t have.
“It is quite disheartening that the hope of a breath of fresh air shared by the good people of Lagos State who are barely surviving the harassment and insensitivity of the ruling APC has suffered a momentary stagnation by the actions of the likes of Chief Bode George.
“We are convinced that the vision to rescue Lagos from the grip of the marauders across party lines, who have held the state by the jugular in the last 24 years will be realized. The victory of evil over good is only temporary, power will be returned to the people,” Ogunleye said.
