Senator Adeseye Ogunlewe. former chieftain of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has described Chief Bode George, a chieftain of the party in Lagos, as a leader who knows nothing about the politics of Lagos.
The former Minister of Works and Housing during the administration of Olusegun Obasanjo said he was surprised seeing Bode George speaking as an authority in the politics of Lagos when it is glaring that he knows little about the trade.
Speaking in an interview with Sunday Punch, Ogunlewe, a Lagos’ political bigwig, who defected from PDP to the ruling party, All Progressive Congress (APC) in 2019, said: “George is new to this struggle. We started the struggle. He doesn’t know about the struggle at all. Bode George is new to Lagos State politics. He doesn’t know anything. He is new in the politics.
Ogunlewe disclosed that he tried to discuss his defection plan from PDP to APC with Bode George but he refrained himself because he did not want Bode George to frustrate him.
“Honestly, I tried my best to make sure that he saw things the way I saw them but he didn’t and I didn’t want to be frustrated, so I had to move to where I belong. APC is progressive and it is the offshoot of Alliance for Democracy (AD). I was a member of AD so I simply came back home to people that have similar ideals and views in politics like me.”
