I Have No Regrets Not Supporting Jandor In Lagos Guber — Bode George

Bode George, a former deputy national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said he had no regrets about not endorsing Olajide Adediran (Jandor) in the Lagos state gubernatorial election.

In an interview with Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday, George made this disclosure.

He claimed that regardless of party membership, he supported the candidate who was the best among all of the candidates in accordance with the group to which he belonged.

The PDP leader claimed he supported the best candidate, regardless of party affiliation, because it was the choice made by a group to which he belongs.

He said: “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 the educational background? Who has the moral background to handle my state? As a PDP, the fellow who got the ticket was on another planet.

“No regrets whatsoever (not supporting Jandor). And let me tell you something, I said it publicly to our presidential candidate that if they do not honour the South-West, I won’t vote for Atiku, I did not hide it,” he added.
