2023: It’s an insult to Nigerians for Tinubu to contest — Bode George

Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Bode George has claimed it is an insult to Nigerians for someone like Bola Ahmed Tinubu to contest for presidency.

The former military governor of Ondo State in an interview with Vanguard said his assertion was based on the consideration of Tinubu’s past.

Speaking, “Let me remind him (Tinubu) because he is a Yoruba man. In my part of the world, kingmakers are called afobaje.

“When you are a kingmaker, you do not throw yourself in the ring and say you want to be king.

“So, by saying publicly that he is a kingmaker and now he wants to be king, it is a fallacy.

“As Nigerians, we must challenge and x-ray anyone who throws his hat in the ring because when you come out to campaign, you tell people to trust you with the resources of the country for the betterment of the people.

“And so, if you look at his (Tinubu’s) past and all he has done, is he worth throwing tantrums all over the place? It is an insult to us.

“And my party will be ready, it will not be a dog fight, we will centre ourselves on justice, fairness and equity. We must not shy from telling the truth to power”.
