I am Ready to Work Under President Tinubu, Bode George Retracts

Bode George to work for President Bola Tinubu

A former Deputy National Party Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George has retracted his opposition to the political view of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Chief Bode George who has been a long-time political critic of President Bola Tinubu's political ideology has retracted his opposition to the President. He stated this while addressing questions from journalists who gathered at his Ikoyi office for interaction with him.

It could be recalled that during the contest for the 2023 presidential election, Chief Bode George vowed to vacate this country if Tinubu should win the presidential election.

To avert the self-imposed political exile, some leaders in the Southwest where the two political icons hail from, have approached Chief Bode George to revert his vow which seems to have been reverted.

At the journalists' hangout with Chief Bode George, he stated that he will be happily ready to corporate with President Tinubu if he extends his hands of fellowship to him in the course of proffering solutions to governmental challenges that face the country.

Chief Bode George said "My reaction, like I have said, there is nothing personal. Look, I trained in the military. You know in the military whoever is in the trench next to you is your brother. When you go out to say what is our mission in the military? It is to defend our country. If he comes and says look, what do you feel about this, what do you feel about that, let’s work together in the interest of this country, why would I refuse? This nation also trained me.

"The military trained me. There is no part of the world that I have not been, training and doing exercises. This country trained us. So, we must be able to put something back to the system that would also positively impact on the younger ones, to put a smile on their faces.’

Responding to questions from the journalists on why his party, PDP lost the 2023 presidential election, Chief Bode George blamed PDP's electoral loss on inconsistency and lack of respect for zoning within the party.

Chief Bode George recalled that "They divided Nigeria into six geo-political zones and sought out six top positions in Nigeria, to which each zone will go home with one position or the other. After eight years, all the positions in the North will come to the South so that the issue of the majority perpetually getting the goodies and the minority just being onlookers will be resolved. I have not seen any better system. Remember when APC first came, they said ‘we don’t believe in zoning, what nonsense, we are not going to do zoning.

"What did they do at the end? Where was Buhari from, where was Osinbajo from? Where was the Speaker from? Where was the Senate president from? That was the major problem the PDP discountenanced and landed us in the deck because the national chairman emerged from the same North where the presidential candidate of the party also came from.

"I said Haba, you wanted to go back to where we tried to avoid, but they kicked. There are no monkeys anymore in Idanre (Ondo State). When we tried to point out to them that South West had been left behind and not included in their calculation, they said we should come back after the elections. Then we said okay, we would also after the elections. Now, we have seen the consequence.
