Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olabode George, has said that the 2019 general elections in Lagos State will be a battle against the terrible, dictatorial, doomy, godfatherism that has kept Lagos state in bondage for the past 20 years.
Bode George said that the common enemy of Lagosian was the certain symbol of a party who has regularly appropriated the Lagosian heritage as a personal estate.
He said: “Our party has now come out on a mission of rescue and salvage. Lagos must be redeemed and unchained from the manacles of APC.
The party leader expressed his irritation over what he described as show of shame during the flag off of APC campaign in the state.
“It was on record that on Tuesday, APC murdered five people at their so-called flag-off which turned into killing field. Amid the blood bath, Emmanuel Oladesu, the Political Editor of The Nation Newspaper was hit by a stray bullet. The Correspondent of News Agency of Nigeria, Bolaji Buhari was openly beaten up. A correspondent of the Telegraph Newspaper was equally hit by a stray bullet and robbed. Hundreds of people were injured.
