FORMER Deputy National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, has taken a swipe at erstwhile Governor of Osun State, Chief Bisi Akande over his autobiography titled: ‘My Participation’.
Speaking at a meeting where he hosted the Lead Visioner, Lagos4Lagos Movement, Abdul Azeez Olajide Adediran, who recently defected from All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP, Chief George said Akande’s book should be conscripted into the dustbin because it contained fallacies, it’s inaccurate and not good for present and future consumptions.
George also described the contents of the autobiography as capable of creating crisis within the Yoruba race.
Akande had in his autobiography claimed that former governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu built the Lekki home of Pa Ayo Adebanjo, the leader of Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere.
The former APC leader also lampooned erstwhile President Olusegun Obasanjo in the book.
But George appealed to stakeholders across Yoruba land to disregard Akande’s claim in the book, saying the contents of the autobiography is not good for the consumption of future generations of Yoruba children.
George narrated how Akande, ran to Obasanjo for assistance during the Ife/Modakeke fratricidal war in Osun State when he (Akande) was governor and through the intervention of the former president, permanent solution was found to the crisis till date.
The former PDP National Deputy Chairman faulted Akande for vilifying Adebanjo and Obasanjo, whereas he (Akande) failed to speak on the alleged corruption of his friend, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
