Apart from massive names similar to Senator Seye Ogunlewe, Otunba Segun Adewale (Aeroland), Chief Olabode Ibiyinka George is indeniable one other massive title that resonates while you name PDP within the South West, particularly in Lagos.
He was a former Deputy National Chairman of the social gathering, he even made an try and develop into the National Chairman of the social gathering lately.
The principal crux of my write up is as a result of he (BG) has been within the eyes of the storm for some days now, accusations and counter accusations of how he stood in opposition to the victory of the social gathering in Lagos, He is being accused by candidates and social gathering Chieftains of a number of allegations starting from imposing a puppet Chairman, Dr. Dominic Adegbola, different excos and cornering of social gathering funds.
I learn a report the place it was stated that Chief Bode George, as a result of he would need to all the time be seen because the primary chief of PDP in Lagos, that he tries to kill the ambition of others particularly candidates.
The structure of PDP thus stated that any highest elective officer in any state, shall be the chief of the social gathering. For occasion, if PDP produce a Governor or a Senator, such particular person shall be the general chief of the social gathering, however within the case of Lagos, Chief Bode George desires of energy has made him to not respect or accord anybody even the elected officers the best to be referred to as chief, relatively he allegedly work in opposition to their emergence simply to stay and preserve the Supermo of Lagos PDP.
Lusting for the supreme energy in Lagos PDP has perpetually put the social gathering in a pit of failure, as a result of the social gathering shouldn’t be run the best way it ought to be ran, think about a State the place exco checklist are written in his mattress room as in opposition to what the structure stipulated to conduct all inclusive State Congress, the place social gathering members will take part and elect their leaders.
How can Lagos PDP need to profit from Democracy when even their excos didn’t emerge by means of a democratic course of? All are Chief Bode George’s doing.
Party members are uninterested in Onemanship in Lagos PDP. Except that we need to deceive ourselves, Lagos is a one social gathering State by APC as a result of the people who ought to stand as much as be counted in PDP are their contractors or collaborators.
It is honorable for Chief Bode George to bow out now that the ovation remains to be loud than letting himself to be confronted with fierce and disgraceful ousting as a result of, there are scorching blooded leaders who are usually not going to condone pillaging of the social gathering going ahead, there are social gathering members who desires victory on the polls with none hindrance, there are people who desires the social gathering to maneuver away from its present State of incapability to win main elective posts in Lagos.
Chief Bode George is old, and never a tactical politician within the first place able to main the social gathering to victory as a result of, that has not occurred since 1999 that he has been on the helms of affairs. From what we’ve got been listening to, he’s solely within the cash the social gathering will mobilize for elections, additionally what he can get from candidates, these are usually not sufficient causes to carry the social gathering down for failure each 4 years.
Chief Bode George ought to hearken to the voice of causes and resign from lively politics similar to Gbenga Daniel, Chief Tony Anenih and host of different elders to pave the best way for brand spanking new faces in Lagos PDP, anybody that claims that Lagos shouldn’t be winnable from Tinunu/APC is both a idiot or Bourdillon slave, when the social gathering’s equipment and assets lands in the best palms and put to purposeful use, APC can then say goodbye to LAGOS.
Conclusively, the National Working Committee (NWC) of our social gathering ought to begin the right way to conduct a correct State Congress in Lagos, if they’re actually planning for a greater outing in 2023 elections.
Baba Bode George O TO GE o!!!
