Daniel Debunks Rift with Bode George

Ogun State former Governor, Gbenga Daniel, has said he has no altercation with former Peoples Democratic Party South Vice Chairman, Chief Bode George.
He said the so called “ongoing war” between him and Chief Bode George over the chairmanship of the PDP was a creation of rumour mongers.
In a statement on Tuesday, the former Governor said he was a cultured Yoruba man, who places premium on respect for elders and will by no means exchange words with George
The statement said: “Otunba Gbenga Daniel has proven time and time again that he is a strict follower of the tenets of Yoruba culture and tradition which places premium on respect to elders.
“Chief George is not only one of the founding fathers of the PDP but an elder statesman who has made tremendous contributions to the development of the party, therefore, there is no way Otunba Daniel would have disrespected him let alone confront him openly.
“Report of confrontation with Chief Bode George in any way is only a figment of the author’s imagination and never took place.
“The focus of the stakeholders across the South West presently is rebuilding the party and reconciling members and factions alike.
“Achieving a united and vibrant opposition with proper repositioning to offer better alternative to the people in 2019 is the mission at hand.
“When the time comes, the post of the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party will be a collective decision of members of the party in accordance with the constitution of our great party, the PDP.
“We call on the public to kindly disregard this ‘sponsored’ report as the incidence cited does not reflect any reality in matters particular,” the statement added.
