Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George, has described Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose as an ingrate for refusing to support him to become the party’s national chairman.
In response to the comments by the Ekiti State Governor, George in the interview said Fayose was opposing the interest of the South-West in the party. He described Fayose’s comments as immature and stated that the party needed experienced and mature leaders to pilot its affairs.
“The kind of chairman the PDP needs is someone that has integrity, one that is trusted and established”.
“Fayose spoke very immaturely during the interview. For him to have said that the founding fathers of the party should take the backstage in the party’s affairs was very disgusting and self-deceitful. I actually told him at an old meeting of the party that if the chairmanship of the PDP was zoned to the South-West, that I would show interest. He told me he had heard.
“Fayose is an ingrate because when the world was against him during his first term in office, God used me to give him support. I contributed N250,000 to purchase his campaign clothes. We must defend the interest of Yoruba because we have been sidelined in the party’s leadership for too long.“Fayose and Senator Buruji Kashamu cannot continue to decide for the Yoruba people in the PDP.”
