Bode George, a former military governor of old Ondo State, has revealed that Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, is not a native of Lagos State.
Goldennewsng reports that On Tuesday morning, George, a chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party, appeared on Arise TV’s Morning Show. During his appearance, he talked about the PDP’s internal crisis as well as Tinubu’s candidacy.
Punch says George said that the APC candidate hasn’t proven beyond a reasonable doubt that he is from Lagos because he hasn’t provided any evidence to back up his claim.
Tinubu is not from Lagos State, he stated. You can statement me. If he claims to have been raised in Isale-Eko, what school did you go to? I was raised in Lagos on Evans Street. My grandfather’s house was at 35 Evans Street. The community school was where I went. I attended the Isale-Eko stadium to play football. People came to know me that way.”
George stated that the reconciliation would only occur if the party hierarchy “gives unto Caesar what belongs to Caesar,” when asked if the opposition party would be able to resolve its internal crisis before the elections of the following year.
He added that the North-Central, who currently holds the position of national chairman, had held the majority of the party’s leadership positions ever since the party was founded almost 25 years ago.
“It is not a solution that cannot be handled,” he continued. Give Caesar what belongs to Caesar, that’s all we’re saying. Give us what we are entitled to. Limited by Turn by Turn Nigeria Take, for instance, the fact that the late North-Central native Papa Solomon served as the first chairman, which is what makes me angry. North-Central, the second chairman. North-Central’s Audu Ogbe served as the third chairman. North-Central’s fourth chairman, my oga, Dr. Amadu Ali; Baraje, from Kwara, was additionally North-Focal. You now have Ayu, which is also in North-Central.
“The South-West has never partaken in this situation since the party began very nearly a long time back. What do we do wrong? If you want to rule this country, you need to unite all the tribes and people, you need to tell us. I will not vote for our own candidate unless that is addressed as the primary issue.
