The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has berated a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George for his attack on a former governor of the state, Bola Tinubu.
The party in a statement issued by its publicity secretary,Seye Oladejo while describing George’s own presidential ambition as a tall dream, said the PDP chieftain has a phobia for Tinubu who he blames for his political woes.
The statement reads in part: “Our attention has been drawn to the purported presidential ambition of Chief Bode George through series of newspaper interviews.
“The dreamy nollywood ambition itself would ordinarily not have been dignified with a response but for his focus on his political nemesis, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. It’s apparent from the various interviews that Chief Bode George has a phobia for Asiwaju who he solely holds responsible for his consistent political failures since the advent of democracy in Nigeria.
“In his recent interview, he attributed his constant defeat in Lagos State to rigging. It was convenient for him to forget that he has not been able to hold Lagos State.
“PDP together with all his assumed experience. His party oftentimes makes the headlines for violent crisis like rudderless sheep. The fact that PDP in Lagos State only comes alive few months to national elections is only suggestive of political yahoo yahoo.
“Our candid advice is that Chief George should first provide leadership in his homestead before venturing beyond.
“His inability to deliver his polling units during elections speaks volumes about his electoral value. His major selling point of having become a state governor at 42 years and the not so glorious stint at NPA should best be confined to the dustbin of history.”
George had at a recent interview said he is joining the presidential race for the sole purpose of stopping Tinubu.
