The Lagos State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the last election , Jimi Agbaje , has asked a former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP , Chief Bode George , to shut up and act as an elder .
The Director of Media and Publicity , Jimi Agbaje Campaign Organisation , Felix Oboagwina, in a statement on Wednesday , said Agbaje described his purported defection as misinformation that should be discountenanced , adding that he had never been a member of the APC and talks of his “ returning ” to the ruling party had never crossed his mind .
Agbaje was quoted as saying , “ People should please tell Bode George to shut up and leave the PDP if he lacks any value to add to the party , instead of being a dog in the manger hampering the progress of the party in Lagos State .
“… Or how else do you describe someone who just sits down to concoct fiction and markets it as reality ? He should tell the world where he got the news being spread round.
“ These shameless party leaders have 2023 in mind . The game plan is mischievously simple: Give a dog a bad name and chase it away from the party . By 2023 , this mudslinging will have scared off credible people from the party , which will leave the whole field to them to continue to corner party resources . ”
The former PDP candidate , however , said he was too big to sneak out of one party into another one .
“ The reality remains that I have not left PDP for any other party , least of all APC, ” he added .
