It is not yet time to criticize President Buhari – Bode George

It is not yet time to criticize President Buhari – Bode George Clement Ejiofor 3 hours ago 19898 – Bode George, a former deputy national chairman of the PDP, explained why he refrained from criticising the policies of the APC-led federal government – Commenting on the increase in fuel price, George noted that the PDP had to remove the speck in its eyes before seeing that of the APC – The PDP chieftain stressed that now he was more concerned how to rebuild the party and resolve the crisis

“We have to remove the speck in our own eyes before we can see the one in the eyes of the others.” Bode George, a former deputy national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has explained why he does not criticize President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government.

Speaking in an interview with The Punch on Thursday, May 13, George noted that it was unnecessary to condemn the policies of the ruling party recalling that the APC leadership had asked Nigerians to give them more time to fulfil their campaign promises. The PDP chieftain further stressed that now he was more concerned how to resolve the crisis rocking his party. When asked to comment on the increase in fuel price, George noted that the PDP had to remove the speck in its eyes before seeing that of the APC. “No comment for now. It is not yet time to criticize President Muhammadu Buhari or the All Progressives Congress because we in the PDP are in a crisis and we are trying to rebuild our own house.

Bode George blasts governor “We have to remove the speck in our own eyes before we can see the one in the eyes of the others. The APC and the president have asked for time to deliver on their campaign promises and we are watching. For now, whether it is fuel price hike or other government policies, I will say no comment.

“We are busy holding meetings in order to rebuild the PDP and it would be unnecessary to make any comment yet. As I speak to you, I am in the middle of a meeting; our party is trying to resolve its crisis.
“The next general election is still very far away. It is three years away from here. In the fourth year of this government, when elections are around the corner, this present government would have almost finished its tenure. It is then we can roll out our plans and be able to make a good critique of the Buhari government,” he said.

Meanwhile, the crisis rocking the PDP has taken a new turn as Jerry Gana, a former minister of information, and other leading members announced the takeover of the party from its national chairman, Ali Sheriff. The party’s chieftains and stakeholders rejected the decision of the PDP National Executive Committee to extend the tenure of Sheriff to May 21, 2016.

They stressed that the purported extension of the tenure of the chairman and other members of the national working committee was illegal and contrary to the provisions of the PDP Constitution which gives such powers only to the National Convention of the party.
