Guber Poll: Why I Did Not Support Jandor – Bode George
Bode George, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says he has no regret for not supporting Abdul-Azeez Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, the party’s governorship candidate, in Lagos.
He said this while speaking on Channels Television on Monday.
Bode George said the endorsement of Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party (LP), was not on an individual level.
In the build-up to the March 18 governorship election in Lagos, the Omo Eko Pataki group led by George endorsed Rhodes-Vivour ahead of Jandor.
Reacting to why he chose the LP candidate, the PDP chieftain said the endorsement by the Omo Eko Pataki group was different from the affairs of the PDP, noting that Jandor, was operating on “another planet” during the elections.
“If you say that I supported somebody from another party, it is not me as PDP. There is a group called Omo Eko Pataki and as a bonafide Lagosian we sat down, we took each of those candidates from (Governor Babajide) Sanwo-Olu to Jandor and others and we weighed them.
“And there was a new movement going on in the country and we said look, who has the capacity? Who has an educational background? Who has the moral background to handle my state? As a PDP, the fellow who got the ticket was on another planet.”
Asked whether he has regrets not supporting Jandor, George said, “No regrets whatsoever (not supporting Jandor).
