Funke Akindele: Jandor Breached Our Agreement On Running Mate — Bode George

I Will Relocate If Tinubu Emerges President - Bode George

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Bode George says the party’s governorship candidate in Lagos State, South West Nigeria, Olajide Adediran, better known as Jandor breached an agreement on running-mate selection.

Gatekeepers News reports that Bode George disclosed this in an Exclusive interview on News Central.

George said Jandor flouted the agreement to make Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour his running mate — instead of Funke Akindele.

He said Adediran’s decision to pick Akindele, the actress, as running mate forced Rhodes-Vivour to join the Labour Party as its standard bearer for the Lagos governorship election.

“After their presentation here in my office, we saw that these were the best two we have (Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour and Adediran), and we asked him (Adediran) pointedly here, would you work with this man as your deputy, and he said, ‘yes sir,” he said.

“Haven’t paid for the price of the form, for us to have a seamless primary, would you take him to be your running, mate, he answered ‘yes sir”

“After that, he came to me to say his mentor, Denrele Ogunsayan asked him to choose a deputy from Ikorodu, a woman. I told him why didn’t tell me at the time. I’m saying this now for history because that was what transpired. I have heard rumours that I am the one sponsoring Gbadebo.

“He (Adediran) reneged on the agreement. I had to call Gbadebo’s father to tell him that this is getting a bit too dangerous. We as leaders did our utmost to ensure that we have a very seamless primary.”
