PDP chairmanship: Why I support Bode George, by Segun Adewale


A former factional Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Mr Segun Adewale, has said that he is supporting Chief Olabode George for the chairmanship seat of the party in spite of their political disagreements.
Adewale told reporters in Lagos on Sunday that supporting George, a former PDP Deputy National Chairman for the exalted party position was the right thing to do politically.
He said that though he had some issues with George in the state chapter of the party, he would still support him for the position.
“I am supporting Bode George to be the next chairman of the party despite our differences.
“The disagreements I have with him are local disagreements and not national. My support goes for his national aspiration.
“My support is based on his promise that he would not interfere in the affairs of the party at the state level, which was the major cause of the friction.
“Moreover, Bode George is a chieftain from Lagos, “he said.
Adewale was present at George’s declaration for the party’s chairmanship position on Friday in Lagos.
The PDP National Convention to elect new national executives will hold on December 9 in Abuja.
