A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Bode George, has
described Governor Ayodele Fayose as an immature and ingrate for saying that he would not support him (George) to become the national chairman of the party.
The former NPA board chairman also berated Fayose for saying that PDP elders must take the backstage in the party’s affairs.
Fayose had during an interview a TV station blamed the loss of the 2015 general election on the elders of the party.
He also dismissed the report that he was supporting the acting National Chairman of the PDP, Modu Sheriff, so that he (Sheriff) could pick him as his running mate when Sheriff finally declares his intention to run for the presidency.
But in a swift reaction, George said Fayose was opposing the interest of the South-West in the party, adding that his comments showed that he was an immature politician.
While stressing that the party needed experienced and matured leaders to pilot its affairs, George said age was not a barrier to good leadership but an asset.
He said the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, was older than him.
George said if the chairmanship position was eventually zoned to the South-West, he would consult with family and friends on whether or not to contest, adding that politics was not a do-or-die affair.
