A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olabode George, has declared that he’s going to dump Nigeria for Togo if Tinubu becomes Nigeria’s President come 2023.
Bode George who had just lately expressed desire to challenge the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in the subsequent election, when asked Why he made an instantaneous challenge stated: it is a challenge. It would be the most illogical and most disruptive issue to have him (Tinubu) elected as President.
“If this occurs, I can disown Nigeria to take the citizenship of Togo or some other nation. Look, what this fellow did in my state, all of the lies and probably the most painful thing was that on the day of the election (2019 election) two bullion trucks drove in the daylight to his house and what did Prof Itse Sagay say, that he (Tinubu) had been an excessively rich man before.
“Where was he wealthy? If his (Sagay’s) conclusion was that, then something is incorrect. Allow us to name a spade a spade and stop deceiving ourselves. So, if that’s the manner they need to do it, then I’m in a position to stand him (Tinubu). Allow us to get out there as it would be the largest disservice for our country to have him contest as a presidential candidate.
Bode went on to mention: The APC to me is a congregation of peculiar bird fellows and you’ll be able to see the impact. No one is speaking for the party or the government, all you hear are a cacophony of voices and this is the reason the party isn’t working. So, if Tinubu is among the leaders of the party, it means it’s not working. I’m satisfied that Nigerians who voted the APC into govt could be regretting it now. It’s not that i am announcing this as a result of I belong to another party, however the control of that party (APC) is archaic and it’s rural in its idea. They are able to modernize themselves though. You heard what the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, as soon as stated that all those who have sinned before should come to the APC and their sins would be forgiven. Is that the type of statement that should come from the national chairman of a ruling party? So, it (APC) is a congregation of sinful people. What is needed in Nigeria is the supply of meals, safe haven, and just right infrastructure, however the APC is now very some distance from offering that. Whether or not you’re a wealthy or a deficient man, all of us fall into the similar class and it’s horrifying.
George, however, had earlier mentioned that the PDP needs ‘remodelling’ and that if the party is going on like this, it would “be crushed stupid at elections.”
