Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Bode George has been openly critical of All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Bola Tinubu following the recent crisis which rocked the APC over its choice of National Assembly leaders.

The APC chose Senator Ahmed Lawan and Femi Gbajabiamila to represent it as sole candidates in the Assembly elections but Senator Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara defied the party and emerged victorious instead.

George has described the development as a ‘political circumcision’ for Tinubu after earlier saying that the APC leader’s political career is over.

Read below 10 things Bode George had to say about Bola Tinubu in his recent interview with Punch:

  1. The way Asiwaju Bola Tinubu plays his politics is very primitive and dictatorial.

  2. I am happy that he has been given a political circumcision. He wanted to bring that nonsense from Lagos to the national level and if he is not careful, because they are all strange bed fellows; they will not last.

  3. Tinubu is not a selfless leader. All he has done is to remain in his cocoon in Lagos. What is his national value?

  4. He has become powerful and that was why he was able to determine who becomes governor and who emerges the Speaker of the House of Assembly. He wanted to take that system to the national level but failed.

  5. If Tinubu thinks he has full control of the Yoruba race, then he is a joker and he doesn’t know the history of the Yoruba people.

  6. Tinubu teamed up with the North-West and robbed the Yoruba people of the speakership position. He told his boys in the Action Congress of Nigeria to vote for Aminu Tambuwal and that was how Tambuwal became Speaker.

  7. Tinubu is drinking the soup that he prepared and that is what he deserves. The APC is a merger and Tinubu nominated the Vice-President and the national chairman and yet wants to pick the Speaker and the Senate President. Is Nigeria practising a dictatorship or a democracy?

  8. When we were screaming about the Tambuwal issue, Tinubu was rejoicing, he thought he was smart. He forgot the saying that what you do today will have consequences tomorrow. Must they always have their way? Haven’t they been manipulating the system all this while? Tinubu should not seek to make himself too powerful; if not, the APC will die the moment he dies.

  9. Tinubu is surrounded by those who cannot tell him the truth, including Akande.

  10. Tinubu has now been given political circumcision.
