Chief Bode George

Ajomale pointed to indications of the recent interest the PDP chieftain has shown in the ruling party as proof.

People's Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Bode George is set to join the All Progressives Congress (APC) according to the Lagos Chairman of the APC, Chief Henry Ajomale.

Ajomale made this revelation in an interview with Sun, saying, "I mean it. Mark my words, Chief Bode George will soon be in APC fold. George is on his way to joining the APC, and we will welcome him in a big way.

"He is coming to join us very soon, to join APC in helping to transform Lagos State into Dubai of Africa."

He pointed to indications of the recent interest the former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP has shown in the ruling party, saying, "Look at some of his recent comments, how he has been praising Governor Akinwumi Ambode to high heavens, commending the governor over developmental projects he has been executing in Lagos State.

"George is an eminent Lagosian who is passionate about the development and growth of Lagos State, and I praise him saying the truth about Ambode’s administration, that Ambode’s administration is an excellent one."

The APC chairman also pointed at the recent defection of Senator Musiliu Obanikoro to the party as proof of the party's continued growth.

"But as I said earlier, it is not a joke, Bode George will soon follow Obanikoro to APC and we are waiting to receive him into APC fold," he said. – Politics
