Highly informed sources have revealed reasons behind the sack of Mrs Bode-George as NDLEA boss ..we learnt she took undue advantage of her position as the boss of the anti-drug agency by compromising and engaging officials of the agency in partisan politics.
It was also believed that her appointment was one of the flawed one made by ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.. “shortly after her appointment, Mrs Bode-George deployed NDLEA officials to Ekiti to participate in the June 21 governorship election. Truckloads of NDLEA officials were seen parading the streets of Ekiti in broad daylight a day before the elections”.
Whereas “The law establishing the NDLEA does not empower them to participate as security operatives during elections. But , Mrs Bode- George shortly after her appointment deployed officers of the NDLEA to Ekiti state, thereby engaging an agency hitherto known to be neutral and non- partisan in electioneering matters.
Powerful forces in pdp and apc also hold the opinion that she is not worthy of that position. That slot, belonging to Lagos State was given to her husband by the federal government. But instead of handing it to one of his supporters who were working tirelessly for the PDP in Lagos, he chose to hand it over to his wife, who already was a member of the National Population Commission”.
