Former Minister of State for Defence and Lagos Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial contender, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro has described Chief Bode George as a man without capacity for peace, honor and integrity, saying he remains reason PDP can’t win Lagos.
In response to Chief Bode George’s call for peace in Lagos PDP in the aftermath of the gubernatorial primaries, Senator Obanikoro in a statement on Wednesday noted that the violence that tainted and tarnished the outcome of Monday’s gubernatorial primaries was orchestrated by Bode George.
“Chief Bode George has no capacity for peace and unity in Lagos PDP when he is the major architect of violence and confusion in the first place. His call for peace is a desperate attempt to get the attention of President Jonathan to take him seriously as a responsible leader of Lagos PDP. Unfortunately, Bode George is a man far from anything responsible, peaceful or honorable.
“His introduction of religious bias and sentiment into Lagos PDP by asking delegates to vote for a Christian, instead of a Muslim candidate, is dangerous for the peaceful cohesion of Lagos PDP and totally condemnable.
“I warned Chief Bode George to steer clear of the electoral process and stand as an unbiased umpire but he opted for the path of dishonor and threw himself into the ring. The result is the sham of gubernatorial primaries that has subjected our party in Lagos state to an unprecedented public ridicule.”
“Where is Chief Bode George’s honor if after manipulating an election where 806 delegates produced 863 votes, he is calling for peace and unity?” Senator Obanikoro queried.
