I’ll Leave Nigeria If Tinubu Emerges President – Bode George.
Bode George, a former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, has threatened to quit Nigeria if Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, is elected President in 2023.
In an interview with Vanguard, George stated that he had nothing against the former Governor of Lagos State, but that he (Tinubu) lacks the necessary skills to lead the country.
Tinubu, according to the PDP leader, would be the biggest joke on the world plane if elected President of Nigeria.
George said, “I have nothing personal, this man (Tinubu) does not have what it takes to manage this country. If he does, Nigerians will regret it.”
“Who is he? In his character, in his name, or educational qualification. What I am telling him is what I know. If Nigerians are dumb enough not to see that and they choose that he is the one they want to put forward as president, I wish them the best of luck. I won’t be part of it here, because he will take the country to the gutters.”
Asked what he would do should Tinubu become president, George replied: “I will move away from Nigeria, I’ll leave because he will be your representative in the international plain. Which investment will he bring here? I am not talking because I have any hatred for him. This is not the kind of person we can hand over this massive country to manage. He will be the greatest joke on the international plane. We should bother who should lead us.”
