A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olabode George, has described the rumoured 2023 presidential ambition of APC National Leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as illogical and disruptive.
Mr.George in an exclusive interview with the Punch vowed to challenge Tinubu with his reciprocal presidential ambition. He also vowed to give up his Nigerian citizenship for that of Togo or any other country if Tinubu is elected as Nigerian president in 2023.
Recalling how Tinubu maladministered Lagos State during his tenure as governor and the questionable sources of his wealth, Chief George insisted that electing Tinubu as Nigeria’s President in 2023 will be a huge national disservice.
“It is a challenge. It would be the most illogical and most disruptive issue to have him (Tinubu) elected as President. If this happens, I will disown Nigeria to take the citizenship of Togo or any other country. Look, what this fellow did in my state, all the lies and the most painful thing was that on the day of the election (2019 election) two bullion vans drove in the daylight to his house and what did Prof Itse Sagay say, that he (Tinubu) had been a very wealthy man before. Where was he wealthy? If his (Sagay’s) conclusion was that, then something is wrong. Let us call a spade a spade and stop deceiving ourselves. So, if that is the way they want to do it, then I am ready to face him (Tinubu). Let us get out there because it would be the greatest disservice for our nation to have him contest as a presidential candidate”.
Bode George further described the ruling APC as “a congregation of strange bird fellows”.
