The governor said, “ is high time to tell Bode George to go and retire. Let him be a support stand for the younger ones in the party.

“As am here, am about 60 years of age, have grown above fighting for minister it get to a point and someone say he is sacking me. never be such minister not to talk of contesting any post younger ones in the party.

“It is time for young people in the party to tell elderly ones to take the back seat. ’m not against the elders, but want them to know when to take the back seat. If they don’t, the young ones force them. All those stories of we formed this party in 1998, eight of us sat in my sitting room to form the party, is no longer important because the younger ones too must be allowed to grow.

“At this level, if you see any elder contesting the younger ones, you must know that such fellow needs to be retired.

“I am Ayodele Fayose, you can quote me anywhere. I said you must retire Bode George if you want in the PDP in Lagos. You must stand firm and fight for your right.

“As an elder, he is supposed to stay at home and be giving blessing to his children aspiring to grow not to be contending positions with them.”
