The All Progressives Congress, APC, Lagos State chapter, has asked a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic party, PDP, Chief Bode George, to keep quiet for now and continue to lick the wounds inflicted on him by the colossal defeat that his party suffered at the national and state level.
In a press statement released in Lagos by the State Publicity Secretary, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, the party said George like the Lagos PDP Chairman, Tunji Shelle, has just woken up from a chronic hallucination after suffering a choking and devastating defeat in the hands of the APC.
“Bode George is yet to come to terms that it is all over for the PDP in Nigeria and Lagos. He is yet to believe that Lagos APC has forcefully retired him from active politics forever in Nigeria and Lagos State.
“Why is Bode George finding it difficult to believe that the game is over for him in Nigerian politics talk less of Lagos State? Who will tell George that nobody takes him serious again in matters of Nigerian politics? Who will persuade Chief Bode George to quit politics now in his own interest?
“What is giving Bode George the courage to believe that President Buhari will probe Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and former governor Babatunde Fashola, who are the real drivers of change in Nigeria because a Bode George said so? How can a jail bird who plundered and looted the NPA, and who just got pardoned the other day because of the 2015 elections forget easily that he is part of the problem of Nigeria and not
its solution? Does he know that his case at NPA and the
fraudulent amnesty granted by the former president may be revisited?
“How can we forget that Chief George imposed Jimi Agbaje on Lagos PDP and caused a big crisis at Oregun where the party conducted its primaries? How can we forget that Chief Bode George kept the funds meant for his party campaigns in Lagos, knowing fully well that there was no road to where he was going? How can we forget that it was this same person
that initiated the political brigandage and ethnic politics we saw in Lagos that nearly caused xenophobic attacks?”
“How can an old man who armed thugs all over Lagos with an instruction to kill if necessary in order to steal Lagos be the one that will tell President Buhari what to do? Does Bode George know that the president has full knowledge of his dubious activities in Lagos during the campaigns?
“He spoke about the cost of projects in Lagos, but the question is this: what does a hut builder know about Lekki-Ikoyi Bridge? What does this carpenter know about gold? What does this failed politician know about good governance and service delivery?”
