Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George, has said he has no regret for not supporting the party’s candidate, Olajide Adediran popularly known as Jandor in the March 18 governorship election in Lagos state.

George, who is a PDP chieftain in Lagos, said this as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday.

He said his decision not to support Jandor was not personal.

“If you say that I supported somebody from another party, it is not me as PDP. There is a group called Omo Eko Pataki and as a bonafide Lagosian we sat down, we took each of those candidates from (Governor Babajide) Sanwo-Olu to Jandor and others and we weighed them.

“And there was a new movement going on in the country and we said look, who has the capacity? Who has the educational background? Who has the moral background to handle my state? As a PDP, the fellow who got the ticket was on another planet,” George said.

Recall that George openly supported the Labour Party (LP) candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour in the election.

He said, “No regrets whatsoever (not supporting Jandor). And let me tell you something, I said it publicly to our presidential candidate that if they do not honour the South-West, I won’t vote for Atiku. I did not hide it.”
