Former South West Vice Chairman of the peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George, has called on President Muhammadu Bahari to act urgently to contained the insecurity in the land.
George spoke at a press conference/celebration of PDP south west congress held in Osogbo recently; at which all his preferred candidates emerged victorious.
According to him the president still has at least two more years to prove to Nigerians that he is the commander in chief and this he can do by bringing the killer herdsmen and other criminal elements to book.
He went down memory lane to recount how cattle rearers used to bring their cattle down south and after selling began to sell what he called ‘agu mu’ saying that they were not known then to be killers.
“When and why they turn killers suddenly, I do not know,” he said.
George also described the recent ant-graft law of Lagos State, which has asked the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) to hand over all cases it is prosecuting against former Lagos governors as nulled, void and unconstitutional stressing that according to the constitution of Nigeria, when a state law clashes with federal, state law becomes null and void.
He also called on all PDP members that want to contest any election to first seek the mandate of members to secure the party’s ticket rather going about deceiving the people that they belong to so and so camp.
” In PDP, we do not have camps. There is no Bode George camp. If anybody tells you such, he is lying,” George who is also the Atona Odua said.
He called on Nigerians to jaw, jaw instead of war, war over issues as it is human to disagree.
The reception attracted a large turnout of party members and journalists from all corners of Lagos State.
