God’ll give PDP another opportunity to rule Nigeria – Bode George

Chief Olabode George  former deputy national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has stated hope that God and Nigerians will give the former ruling party another chance to govern the country, again, come 2019.

George said this, yesterday when he hosted the South-West zonal official of the party, led by Eddy Olafeso, which paid him a working visit at his Ikoyi, Lagos office.

George premised his declaration on what he called the poor performance of the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government.

“Nigerians have seen the two sides of the coin and they have an opportunity to decide, based on your performance, based on the trust that they have in you. God is a God of second chance,” he said and  dismissed President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration as “lacking the capacity to put smiles on the faces of Nigerians.

“I have been advising my oga (boss), Mr. President, what does he want to be remembered for? I am talking now as a general, not as a politician. If anybody is telling him, all is well; all is not well. Whatever he will do to alleviate the despondency in the land, he must do.”

He said for the main opposition party to launch itself back to reckoning, it must do away with imposition of candidates which he noted was its undoing.

“If we want to win, we must tell ourselves some home truths and go back to our drawing board. We must be just, we must be fair and we must be equitable.

“We should learn from the mistakes of the past. The penchant that ‘I am in charge, I can do and undo,’ it must end. So, let us learn that there must be justice, fairness and equity. It is a tripod: if we remove any of these three legs, we are going nowhere. If we don’t do that, we are wasting our time.

“So, all we need to do is gather ourselves together and let us give the best hands to manage us through this storm. We need experienced captains to take us to our destination. I wish them well.”

Speaking on the intractable leadership tussle rocking the party, the former deputy national chairman of the party accused the former Borno State governor and factional national chairman, Senator Ali Modu-Sheriff of doing the bidding of certain forces outside the PDP, whom he claimed were determined to run the party aground.

“I will just appeal to Senator Ali Modu Sheriff: enough is enough. The political rascality, judicial rascality must stop for posterity. All these unnecessary litigations.

“There is an adage in Yoruba that when you see a bush rat dancing in the middle of the road, the drummers are in the bush. Let him take it easy, for the sake of the future generations of this country. Those who invited him, I hope they have learnt a lesson. It takes one terrible person to throw a stone into the well, one million professors won’t be able to find that stone.”

Earlier in his remarks, Olafeso disclosed that his leadership was on a working visit to George to brief him about the outcome of Ondo State governorship election and the future of the party in the zone.

  1. What is this man talking about?
    The opposition had their chance for 16 good years, during which they abundantly enriched their pockets at the detriment of ordinary Nigerian citizens. Price of oil which is Nigeria’s only source of revenue, was at its peak during this period. Infrastructure, security of lives and property, the economy, health sector, education etc. were all in a state of collapse when the incumbent took over. Everyone expects a miracle in less than 2 years of governance, forgetting it is easier to destroy than to build.
    It took the opposition 16 yrs to get this country to its present dilapidated state, it will take much more than 16 yrs to clean up the mess!

  2. those who blame this present government for their predicament are the one that eaten free money with any work to show for it, it is not too late for them to trace their step and start allover again. we shall get of this mess soon in sha Allah

  3. Bode George and his PDP should go and bury their heads in shame. All contracts awarded during their 16 years reign were pocketed in private pockets. Lagos-Ibadan expressway contract was first awarded in 1999 but nothing was done until their exit in 2015. We do not want where few people are stinking rich while majority are suffering.

  4. I believe in having opposition. PDP should be able to correct the mistakes of the past. If the President cannot get a good economic team to move Nigeria forward they will fail.

  5. NEVER. Ala ti ‘o le se. You must be day dreaming. Another wishful thinking of your group. Nigerians have learnt their lessons now. Edo & Ondo election results should have thought you of your total Rejection by Nigerians.
