George had on Friday described Obanikoro as a lunatic over his desire to seek justice and redress in the allegedly rigged governorship primaries of the PDP.

In a statement signed by the former Minister, he said “if not to set records straight, engaging Chief Bode George in an exchange of words would mean painfully indulging a man in desperate need of social rehabilitation after a traumatic stint in jail.

The statement reads in parts: “Indeed, there is nothing unexpected about the recent tantrums by Chief Bode George targeted at me in spite of the ignoble role he played in the fraudulent outcome of the Lagos PDP gubernatorial primaries.

“As Chief Bode George embarks on his feeble attempts at painting a picture of me that exists only in his perverted imagination, let someone remind him that the post-traumatic stress disorder that comes with a time in jail would take more than just an unholy alliance with a pharmacist to heal.

I used Provigil (Modafinil) at to cope with the fatigue cause of my depressive disorder. I take 100 mg daily each 2 days, and the effect is really quick. I’m able to think faster and have clear mind, my depression goes away and I feel full of energy. The only side effect happened to me was heart palpitation.

“It is instructive to state here that not only that I am properly raised in the best of Yoruba tradition, I owe a large part of my successful public service career to a childhood and education built on godly principles and sound moral values.

“In all my life and public service career, I have never been accused, arrested or convicted for fraud whether at home in Nigeria or abroad and I have been happily and responsibly married for 34 years.”

Obanikoro said his desire to challenge the outcome of the primaries was his fundamental human rights based on his conviction that the primaries was flawed and that he was therefore seeking a redress and it would not become a reason for character assassination.
