Pdp

A political group under the aegis of Lagos Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked an aspirant in the Sat­urday botched state congress of the party, Dr. Adetokunbo Pearse, to withdraw a state­ment where he was alleged to have said that Chief Bode George, former deputy na­tional chairman of the party was responsible for the dis­ruption of the election.

The group in a press statement signed by its chairman, Olatunde John­son, also demanded that Pearse apologises to George within 14 days, failure of which will compel it to sue him (Pearse) for defamation of character.

The statement reads in part, “Our attention has been drawn to a publica­tion wherein one of the chairmanship aspirants, Dr Tokunbo Pearse in the botched congress of 16th October, 2021 attributed the disruption of the congress to Chief Bode George.

In the publication, Pearse said that the disrup­tion was immediately after Chief George approached Senator Abiodun Olujimi who was at the Tafawa Bale­wa Square (TBS) ground distributing the ballot pa­pers to delegates,” it reads.
