A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Olabode George, has slammed members of the party who are hurriedly defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC) shortly after the presidential election.
Speaking to newsmen on Tuesday, George said he had no objection to the decision of the party to challenge the outcome of the presidential election won by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The PDP chieftain noted that politicians should refrain from displaying “attitude of prostitutes.”
According to him, politicians should stand on the side of principle, dedication, loyalty, and commitment to the party.
He said he believed a genuine member of the party should “sink and swim with the ship” by remaining faithful with the party in thick and thin.
Bode George said: “Within a week, I see people already jumping ship. Where is loyalty, where is dedication?
“The party is going to be very conscious now of such characters. They didn’t even wait. The party is in the course of redeeming what they believe is right before the judiciary, you have jumped ship. If tomorrow the judiciary reverses it, what will happen? You will jump back?”
The PDP chieftain also advised his party to do a post-mortem analysis after the elections with a view to reviewing the likely mistakes made and charting a way forward.
