I cannot be in the same party with Bode George, Lagos PDP chair dumps party for APC
Salvador made the declaration while addressing his supporters on Monday in Lagos.
According to him, the leadership of the party has not given him the necessary encouragement to carry out his vision in the party.
He noted that he cannot be in the same party with Bode George and berated the National chairman of the Party, Uche Secondus for failing to call him when he was put in jail on a cooked up murder charge but calling him when he noticed he was about defecting.
“When you have people or leadership that cannot give you encouragement to carry out your vision, you take it to another place where it will be appreciated,” he said
“I am not happy that I am abandoning what I laboured for, but I have to move on with my supporters because I cannot continue to labour in vain.
“Today, the chairman of PDP Board of Trustees called me on the defection and I told him to allow me consult with my people before feedback.
“He never called since I was put in jail on a cooked up murder charge; he called me today to ask why I want to defect.
“And I told him it is not possible for me to be in the same party with Bode George because he undermined all my efforts to reposition the party.
“He was doing all these things and the national leadership was allowing him, saying he is an elder.
“Bode George also cooked up things to put me in jail in the murder case of late Aborishade.
“Enough is enough. I am leaving the party with my supporters and I am taking them to APC where they would be recognised and appreciated,”
