The acting Chairman of the Lagos State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kamaldeen Olorunoje, has accused chieftain, Bode George, of contributing to the party’s defeat in the state.
‘Bode George contributed to PDP’s defeat,’ Chieftain says
Olorunoje said further that George had caused the PDP’s loss by imposing candidates of his choice to contest in the polls.
The acting chairman made the comments on Thursday, August 13, 2015, during a press conference in Lagos.
“Chief Babatunde Olorogun-Etti left, Dr. Yomi Finnih left, Chief Olorunfunmi Basorun. All these people left because of one person, Chief Bode George.”
“We all come from Lagos Island. Olorogun-Etti is from Ward E3 while George is from E2. If as a leader you are losing people in your local government, it calls for questioning and Olorogun-Etti was in Chief George’s caucus.”
“For Lagos State, his leadership has not yielded any fruit. I respect him a lot but a lot needs to be said. He must be able to embrace democracy. His attitude is due to his military training. For example, he imposes candidates on the party.”
“Most of our candidates that won elections were supposed to have been replaced. Had they been replaced, we wouldn’t have won anything. Chief George even told one of them to run for councillorship. That person is a member of the House of Representatives today.”
