Segun Showunmi Calls For Bode George’s Arrest Over ‘Weighty Allegations’ Against Atiku

A former spokesperson to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, Segun Showunmi has accused a former PDP Deputy National Chairman, Chief Bode George of making weighty and unsubstantiated allegations against Atiku.

According to him, George was barking up the wrong tree and should rather focus his anger and frustrations on the right quarters.

Sowounmi, therefore, called for the arrest of George by security agencies over his submissions against the PDP candidate.

Naija News reports Showunmi made the call against the backdrop of George lambasting Atiku and the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, over their alleged silence on the plights of Nigerians following the naira scarcity and fuel shortage caused by the ill-thought policies of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

George also berated the silence maintained by Atiku’s Campaign Director-General, Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal.

The former military governor of Ondo State, who spoke with reporters in Lagos on Thursday, lamented that due to this anomaly, which is a deviation from regulation or what is regarded as normal, there seems to be a graveyard silence on the part of PDP leadership, the supposed major opposition party.

But Sowunmi in his reaction has accused Chief George of playing dangerous politics with his submission, challenging the PDP chieftain to produce evidence for his claims.

The former aide to Atiku blamed the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the administration of President Muhammdu Buhari for the predicament facing Nigeria.

Speaking during a stakeholders’ meeting of PDP leaders from all the 20 Local government areas of the state, Sowunmi said: “Those are very, very weighty allegations Chief Bode George has made and I’m not exactly sure that if he is called upon to provide evidence he may easily be able to do so.

“I don’t think those who are unhappy the party chairman related issues or otherwise can throw caution to the wind in the manner Chief Olabode George has taken it.

“I think the security officers should, first of all arrest him and ask him to come and provide evidence. Is it the people he alleged that did the policy of change of currency, are they the ones that are in charge of the Nigerian security printing and minting, are they the ones that are in charge of currency circulation of CBN?

“He (George) is wrong, the PDP has no hand in the madness going on here, it is purely, a failing of APC, a failing of their government, a failing of their policy, a failing of their responsibility as leaders.

“Nobody should play dangerous politics with the PDP. If Bode George is so sure, then I call on the Director-General of DSS, the Inspector General of police and all responsible organisations for security to arrest him forthwith and ask him to come and provide evidence for the very weighty allegations that he is making.”
