Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George has berated those calling Vice President Yemi Osinbajo a “serial betrayer” for declaring for the 2023 presidency.
George said this on Saturday in apparent reaction to opprobrium being directed at Osinbajo for choosing to vie for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential ticket against former Lagos governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, under whose tenure Osinbajo served as Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice.
George said that neither Tinubu nor his supporters had the moral right to accuse Osinbajo of betrayal.
“What goes round must come round. Almighty God is awesome in his ways and only the truth can make you free. Tinubu has no right to call Osinbajo all kinds of names just because he said he also said he wants to contest for presidency in their party”.
“Tinubu has been a serial betrayer himself. Has he forgotten how he got the AD governorship ticket in 1999? It was ‘Omoluwabi Eko, the late Engr. Funsho Williams that won the ticket. however, they shortchanged him and he (Tinubu) became the beneficiary of that shortchange”.
“My take is that both of them should account for the ownership of Alpha Beta which has been fleecing Lagos state since year 2000,” George told Daily Indepedent.
