Chief Bode George, the former deputy national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has reacted to the defection of six of the eight PDP members of the Lagos state House of Assembly to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to George, the six former PDP lawmakers have disappointed the constituencies that put them there.
Speaking in an interview with Vanguard, George described their defection as a big disappointment.
He said: “I am extremely disappointed in them. A Rolling Stone gathers no moss. Those who tried that in the past, where are they today? If you bite the fingers that fed you, you are heading straight to perfidy. Can the people they are going to join in that political party trust them? It was through our sweat, through our hard work that they got there. We sat down, we worked, spent time and money and resources to convince the people. What they have done now is that they have disappointed the constituencies that put them there. Would they have the nerves except they are shameless to go back to their constituencies? Did they consult them before they jumped ship? It is the most irresponsible behaviour ever.
“It is shameful. Most of them are young, what would they want their names to be in the future? You got a mandate based on your constituencies, they decided the people to represent them and fight on their behalf, they have been there for almost two years but they decided without consulting their leaders at the constituencies and in the party before they jumped ship. Anybody who goes through a window into a house is called a thief.”
Meanwhile, George has disclosed how felt about the Court of Appeal judgement in Port Harcourt, which affirmed Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as the authentic chairman of the party, left him in shock.
He said: “I was shocked. Shocked is the minimum I could say. It is worse than being shocked.”
“My immediate conclusion was that this is the voice of Jacob and the hand of Esau. My spirit has never been this dampened.”
