PDP Lost Lagos Because Abuja Politicians Misled Jonathan – Bode George
A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olabode George has revealed that his party was at the verge of winning the last governorship election in Lagos State, but for the activities of some Abuja politicians who deceived former President, Goodluck Jonathan…Excerpts from his interview with Saturday Sun;
During this last election, PDP almost won, what happened was that former President Goodluck Jonathan and our leaders in Abuja were misled by some people in Lagos who gave them the impression that they were the ones who can deliver Lagos. Unfortunately, Jonathan fell for their deception.
One joker in Lagos State told Jonathan that he has Lagos State under his armpit and that he would single-handedly deliver Lagos State to PDP. Unfortunately, Jonathan listened to these liars and manipulators. These elements took advantage of Jonathan’s good nature. He trusted them, but these congenital liars betrayed Jonathan. If our party leaders had listened to us, things would not have turned out that way. These people deceived Jonathan and messed up, hoping they wanted to go back into government as ministers. Their action led to Jimmy Agbaje’s defeat.
But all hope is not yet lost for PDP, just as I’m optimistic that we will bounce back in 2019, and Lagos State will be one of the states to be won by PDP. I’m sure former President Goodluck Jonathan will someday in his memoir write about his experience with those liars, the roles they played in his campaign for re-election during the 2015 presidential election. Many liars took advantage of Jonathan’s good nature
