A stalwart of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Chief Bode George has accused moles within the party of selling the PDP out to the former Governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu during elections. He stated that such PDP members in the state working as moles for the APC do what they do because of the financial favours they get from Tinubu.
“The problem we have in Lagos especially is that you have people who would grandstand, and they would say they are with you, but they are not with you. They are with Bola Tinubu because of the pittance they get from him. “They pretend that they are here, but God will expose all of them. They don’t know the meaning of Atona Odua, my chieftaincy title; the pathfinder of our progenitor? God will expose them and shame them,” he said.
According to him, the same betrayal by PDP members in Lagos State is equally playing out in the south-west following the decamping of the party’s heavyweights to the APC. “Was it not two days ago that I was sitting down in the office here and the issue of Gbenga Daniel came up? And I said to those who were with me that I learnt that they invited Gbenga Daniel to come and lead Ogun PDP, and I said how? “For over an hour here, we discussed the matter.
I said don’t waste your time. Gbenga Daniel has gone to the APC a long time. There is a reason why he left for APC, but I won’t say it here. “He has gone there a long time. Fayose that is making noise when he was governor, who did he consult? You don’t know what he did? The national treasurer is from Ekiti. Eddy Olafeso is also from Ondo. “So, one wing from the three wings in the south -west got very prominent positions in the National Working Committee of our party. What I mean is, we have Ondo/ Ekiti, Oyo/Osun, then Lagos/Ogun. Only Ondo/Ekiti got two positions in the NWC when he was the only governor in the south -west.
