Immediate past Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro has sued PDP for ‘manipulating’ it’s gubernatorial primaries which took place on Monday in Lagos, with Jimi Agbaje emerging the winner. According to him, Chief Bode George and Ogunlewe manipulated the results and after petitioning the party nothing was done about it, which made him ahead for a Federal High court in Abuja.
PDP Primaries: Obanikoro Drags Party To Court
“We must stand by the truth and the truth is that last Monday’s primary must be cancelled and re-conducted.
“We turned in our petition on Tuesday, thinking that on Thursday, the party would reply according to its guidelines but it has not responded as we speak.
“When I noticed that the party did not respond, we went to a Federal High Court and sued the party.
“I stand for a greater Lagos and anything that will derail that journey will be fought with every drop of my blood,” he said.
Describing chief Bode George and Ogunlewe he said; “Chief Olabode George thinks that he could just bark and people like us would sit down but I think by now, he would have got the message and we will stand shoulder to shoulder.
“This is not about age because if you want to be respected, you must respect yourself.
“We told him at the beginning that if he wants to be the unifier and be an umpire, he has to be above board but he and Ogunlewe did not do that, they became the Director-General and Deputy Director-General of Agbaje Campaign Organisation.”
