A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olabode George, has expressed rage at the way some PDP members hurriedly dumped the party for the All Progressives Congress, APC, shortly after the presidential election.
George described the defection as “absolutely sacrilegious and an “attitude of prostitutes.”
He noted that a genuine member of the party should “sink and swim with the ship” by remaining faithful with the party in thick and thin.
The former deputy chairman also backed the decision of the party to challenge the outcome of the presidential election won by President Muhammadu Buhari in court.
George stated this when he spoke with newsmen yesterday.
He 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?”
