A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olabode Ibiyinka George has lashed out at his estranged political godson and co contestant for the post of the party’s National chairman, Mr. Jimi Agbaje describing the former Lagos State PDP governorship candidate as a betrayal and stooge of Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike.
George lamented “Jimi Agbaje betrayed me. He is a complete disappointment. God will do to him what He does to betrayers who bite the fingers that fed them. He is an embodiment of betrayal!
The embattled PDP chieftain was a guest of Seun Okinbaloye on Politics Today aired on Channels TV.
Bode George allegged that Jimi Agbaje “is being sponsored by those outside the South West. Governor Wike is the ring leader. Fayose is aiding and abetting him but Fayose told us in Akure that he will never follow Wike again because Wike was the one who pushed him into supporting Sheriff where he got his fingers burnt.
“The entire South West including Gbenga Daniel, Prof Adeniran and Prof Adedoja have all endorsed me. South West had taken a unanimous decision but Wike wants to impose a candidate on all of us. Jimi Agbaje jettisoned Yoruba interest. He was dodging us all. He is a betrayer. I brought him up when he was completely hopeless and this is his true colours.
“I want Wike to know that South West didn’t interfere in the choice of South South, we will not allow him to choose our leader. This is a Zonal allocation.
“We are grateful to the Police for locking up the convention venue. They are the ones who saved the PDP yesterday. Otherwise, Wike and Co would have nailed the coffin of PDP yesterday….
