PDP Chairmanship: Why Aeroland Now Backs Bode George
A former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos, Segun Adewale has pledged his support for the aspiration of Bode George to become the party’s new National Chairman.
Adewale told Bounce News on Friday that George now had his full support for the position.
There has been no love lost between Adewale and George over the control of the party in Lagos.
Adewale had held sway during the time when Ali Modu Sheriff was National Chairman of the party.
George, who aligned himself with the Ahmed Makarfi faction, was behind another factional Chairman, Moshood Salvador.
Adewale has often critised the ambition of George to become the party’s new National Chairman.
However, many people were surprised to see him at the official declaration of George for the position on Friday.
But what could have made him have a change of mind?
He told Bounce News' correspondent that he had met with George and both have agreed to settle their differences.
He said one of the conditions for peace to reign was that George should be neutral in handling the crisis facing the party in the state.
Aeroland, as he is popular called, said it was only logical for him and his group to support George, since he was the only contestant from Lagos State.
“You don’t expect me to support a candidate from another state. George is our own. Lagos is different from national.”
He added that George had assured him that he would not take side in resolving the crisis rocking the party in the state.
