A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Olabode George, has vowed to quit politics if the Supreme Court affirms Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as National Chairman of the party.
In an interview with armada, George said: “We are waiting for the judgement of the Supreme Court, if it is positive on our side, we will rebuild the party in line with aspirations of the founding fathers of our party. If it is otherwise, it means goodbye to politics because we will be heading into a tunnel of darkness. I pray that the justices of the Supreme Court will remain fair and just and equitable like they have always been. We are waiting and hoping that justice will be delivered by the Supreme Court. If it is positive on the Makarfi side, we will rebuild the party, if it falls on Modu Sheriff’s side, some of us will take a bow and head home.”
Refuting claims made by chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State that he (George) would soon join the APC, he said he would never join the party.
He said: “I can never abandon a party well organised, a party well entrenched, a party that is the most nationalistic in its colors, its composition, regulations and membership and go to a party that is a congregation of strange bed fellows. They are yet to get their act together.
I am well trained, I have been to strategic schools and I know what is good for this country. I won’t waste my time, maybe he woke up from the wrong side of his bed and was day dreaming. If he is looking for the big fish, he should go and look among themselves, not me and not even anything that I stand for.”
