PDP Primaries: Obanikoro Drags Party To Court


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.

“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.”
