Chief Olabode George urged all warring parties in PDP to sheathe their swords “even though Ayu behaved like a village headmaster in running the affairs of the party”
George, in a chat with Vanguard, insisted that there must be a post-mortem of what led to the crisis.
His words: “My reaction is simple, if a court gives you an order, it should be obeyed to avoid contempt of court. Ayu has to obey the court and then sort out the matter later. What we are saying is that all those he has suspended and expelled are also members of the party’s National Executive Committee. You don’t treat NEC members like ordinary party members.
“Those who suspended Ayu at his ward wanted to embarrass him and that is why they did what they did. He has to be a good manager and not behave like the headmaster of a primary school. I am appealing to all sides to allow peace to reign otherwise the crisis will consume this party the way they are going about it.
“We need to see the end of the judgment because we are still in court. When you are in court, public perception matters a lot. Since he did not do what he was expected to do, that is why they did what they did by suspending him and going to court.
“After the court matter, we will sit down and have a post-mortem of the crisis.”
