Former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, Bode George is very shocked by billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola for endorsing Babajide Sanwo-Olu as the Lagos governorship candidate.
On Saturday, November 17, 2018, Otedola shared a picture on his Instagram where he was seen posing with Sanwo-Olu—a frontline governorship candidate ahead of the 2019 elections.
He captioned the photo:
“Dinner at my residence yesterday evening with my childhood friend, APC governorship candidate, Jide Sanwo-Olu; the governor in waiting.”
PDP Chieftain, Bode George, has described the endorsement of Babajide Sanwo-Olu as shocking.
According to George:
“That is news to me. That is very interesting. Wonders will never cease. It is very shocking.”
When asked by Punch about Otedola’s rumored governorship ambition, George said:
“He has always been with us (PDP). I will call him. I will find out that ‘Ki lo ri? Ki lo se? (What did you see? What did you do?)’ That is strange.”
George however said Otedola’s apparent volte-face won’t affect the electoral dynamics of the PDP in Lagos.
“No, it doesn’t affect our strategies towards 2019 because he is not in our camp. But it is shocking. He is my aburo (junior) and I am going to find out from him what made him (endorse Sanwo-Olu).
“But he is a thoroughbred Lagosian and the people Bola (Tinubu) is handpicking are all from Ogun State. Is that what he wants for his state? I will ask him,
