Obanikoro is possessed, PDP leader says

George also stated that Obanikoro is “possessed and obsessed” and in need of “immediate psychiatric treatment.”

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George has described Lagos governorship aspirant, Musiliu Obanikoro as a desperate sinking man.

The duo are at loggerheads due to the party’s recently conducted governorship primaries which Obanikoro has accused George of manipulating to ensure that another candidate, Jimi Agbaje emerges the winner.

George, via a statement, called for Obanikoro’s attack on him to end. The statement reads:

“One has refrained from engaging Senator Musiliu Obanikoro despite his gross and alarmist provocations. I have deliberately remained distant and quiet, ignoring the stark obscenities of a desperate and obsessed man who is apparently incapable of absorbing the reality of his defeat by a well-bred and better man.”

“For Obanikoro to claim in sheer ludicrousness that I, even remotely, identify with any intimations of violence is utter lunacy and blind, vindictive madness. Surely, Obanikoro is possessed and obsessed. He needs immediate psychiatric treatment. He is a desperate sinking man, grasping and thrashing in self-inflicted chasm.”

“What is the pedigree of this young man who has abandoned the typical African deference to Elders? We know who sprung from violence and banditry. We know whose antecedents reek in noisome, vagrant, untidy ruffianism.”

“Politics is not a do or die affair. No civilized person with impeccable pedigree will seek a tacky refuge in destruction and ruin simply because he has lost in a free and fair contest. Obanikoro should go quietly into that good night if he means well for Lagos. Enough of his desperate tantrums.”
