‘I contributed money to buy Fayose’s campaign clothes’ – Bode George

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Bode George, says Ekiti state Governor, Ayodele Fayose is ungrateful for refusing to support his bid to become the national chairman of the party.

George, a former Deputy National Chairman, also criticised Fayose for insinuating that elders in the PDP, should take a back-seat in the affairs of the party.

Speaking during an interview with Channels Television on Sunday, Fayose had said: “Chief Bode George told me personally that he wanted to be the national chairman of the party, I told him no, that I won’t support him. With all due respect to the elderly people in this party, they must take the backstage. People are tired of seeing the same old faces again.”

George reacted to Fayose on Monday, describing his comments as that of an immature politician.

He said: “The kind of chairman the PDP needs is someone that has integrity, one that is trusted and established.”

“Fayose spoke very immaturely during the interview. For him to have said that the founding fathers of the party should take the backstage in the party’s affairs was very disgusting and self-deceitful.”

“I actually told him at an old meeting of the party that if the chairmanship of the PDP was zoned to the South-West, that I would show interest. He told me he had heard.”

“Fayose is an ingrate because when the world was against him during his first term in office, God used me to give him support. I contributed N250,000 to purchase his campaign clothes.”

“We must defend the interest of Yoruba because we have been sidelined in the party’s leadership for too long. Fayose and Senator Buruji Kashamu cannot continue to decide for the Yoruba people in the PDP.”

“Fayose claims to be a Christian. Let him go and read the book of Micah, chapter 7, from verse 1-10 to learn more about leadership. Many people showed interest from the South-West, even Prof. Tunde Adeniran showed interest. Bode (Olajumoke) knows that Fayose is playing around. Bode and I discussed because we are friends.”
