Chief Bode George is a chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP. He has been running political battles with Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state and one of the national leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

Speaking during an appearance on Plus TV politics, Bode George, himself a Lagosian, said Bola Tinubu did not win the election that made him governor of Lagos state in 19999 but was aided by a PDP traitor to become governor. Although he did not name the ‘PDP traitor’

“Two things that have happened in Lagos, everybody keep asking why have you not been able to win Lagos? We (PDP) won Lagos the first time we swept the whole of the southwest,” he said, adding that a member of his party worked for Tinubu to make him Governor.

He adds, that the traitor came to them apologising, saying “it was him who supported Tinubu to be able to cushion him and remove the loss so that he could get back to power”

He said also that the PDP is trying to avoid mistakes of the past, by avoiding powerful influence from interfering in the party, accusing the powerful influence of imposing their preferred candidates on the party.

“These people they are trying to impose are perpetually working for Bola Tinubu,” he said, adding that, majority of the people who claim to be party loyalists before leaving the PDP in Lagos, ran to Tinubu after leaving the party.
