Spread The News



The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate in Lagos State in the 2023 election, Abdulazeez Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, on Tuesday said he did not expel Chief Bode George from the party.

Jandor explained that George and those who supported candidates from other political parties during the last election expelled themselves from the PDP.

Recall that Jandor had earlier said that leaders of the party who supported other candidates during the last elections have ceased to be members of the party.

Speaking during his ‘State of the Nation’ address, Jandor declared himself the leader of the PDP in Lagos State.

However, appearing on Arise Television on Tuesday, Jandor said: “I did not expel them because I have no power to do so; I would rather say they expelled themselves when they declared for another party during the 2023 electioneering process.

“There is evidence on national TV both for the presidential and gubernatorial elections.

“When a supposed leader of a political party goes on national TV to say, ‘Don’t vote for the candidate of my party’, irrespective of what it is, it shows that the leader has gone to the other party.

“If the party they supported had won, they would have been part of the government today. I don’t have the power, and they never said they’d be expelled; they did it themselves.

“What we’re saying is that because you’ve declared openly, you have no say in this party.”
