‘It’s A Shame’ – Bode George Reacts To ‘Face Off’ Between Sanwo-Olu And Obasa

‘It’s A Shame’ – Bode George Reacts To ‘Face Off’ Between Sanwo-Olu And Obasa

A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olabode George, has described the fallout between the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and the Speaker of the state assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, as a shameless act.

According to the PDP chieftain, coming from the opposition’s angle, it means there is a big crack in the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in the state.

Naija News reports that his reaction follows the alleged dispute between Sanwo-Olu and the leadership of the State House of Assembly, which recently resulted in the rejection of some commissioner-nominees by the House.

Recall that the lawmakers in the state led by Obasa had last week rejected 17 out of the governor’s 39 commissioner nominees’ list.

Reacting to the drama, George said the party’s public display shows its real intention in power which is self-aggrandisement.

He told Nigerian Tribune, “As the opposition party, we are still waiting for the court to decide, but morning shows the day, people say. It shows you that there is a big crack in their midst because how can the same leadership of a party, the same party members of the same party in the Assembly, not agree, and they have to disgrace themselves publicly? It shows you that what we said about this party, APC, is that they are just there not minding the business for which they were elected but for their own self-aggrandisement.

“The governor is the head of the party in Lagos; where are the elders of the party in Lagos? These people (House members) emerged through a process. They are not there on their own; it’s not a private enterprise. Can you imagine an organization where the board makes a decision on something, and one managing director decides to head in another direction? He would be fired. Something is not adding up.

“I don’t know all these people, but we saw their performance; some of them were commissioners before. Well, I, as an elder, should see it in a bigger picture because my concern is my state; my state should be stable, my state should be healthy, my state should address the issue of unemployment for the youth, lack of proper education, lack of public health for the generality of the people and the pain inflicted on the masses by the policies of the national government affecting our people here.

“Who is secure now in Lagos? When you are going, you are quite watchful, whether you are a poor man or you are a rich man, or an indigent person, you are not secure, you are not happy because it is only when your neighbour is happy that you can be happy.

“You know, no matter how healthy or how wealthy you are, if your neighbour is not healthy and he is not happy, how do you manage it? So, that is one bit of it that I saw that they need to go and readdress themselves, to. Our party would not behave like that. It is a shame.”
