Segun Adewale, chairman of the Lagos state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has alleged that Bode George, a board of trustees (BoT) member of the party, has handed PDP over to Moshood Salvador.

The national caretaker committee of the party had asked George and Aduke Maina, both members of the PDP BoT, to take over the party secretariat over an alleged breach of peace by party members loyal to Salvador.

But in a statement on Tuesday, Adewale said the “party’s faithful” would resist any attempt to subvert the interest of PDP.

He accused George of being a principal actor of in the crisis.

The chairman said for peace to be achieved, BoT members should stay within the confines of its mandate of taking possession of the secretariat.

“The directive was to handover the state party secretariat building to the Commissioner Police. This we have fully complied with. Reports that we handed our mandate to honourable Moshood Salvador and his team is misleading and untrue,” the statement read.

“We are aware that chief Bode George is going around claiming he has the authority of the NCC to hand over the party leadership to his stooge.  This is not true as the party’s faithful will vehemently resist any attempt to subvert the interest of our people.

“Our members will resist any attempt by certain members of the BoT to return the PDP in Lagos to its dark days of imposition. Despite being fully aware that Chief Bode George a member of the BoT is a principal actor in the crisis, we abided by the NCC decision for peace. We strongly believe in the unity of the party and that the PDP is bigger than any single individual.

“For us to achieve lasting peace, however, BOT members involved should stay within the confines of its mandate of taking possession of the secretariat pending when the NCC fully reconciles all aggrieved members in Lagos.”
