Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Bode George has said that the political career of All Progressives Congress (APC), leader, Bola Tinubu is over.

George also urged Tinubu to start preparing for retirement saying that the APC leader's political influence had grossly diminished.

The PDP chieftain made the comment on Tuesday, June 9, 2015, following the emergence of Senator Bukola Saraki as the Senate President, Punch reports.

“You know I predicted weeks ago that the APC is just a congregation of strange bedfellows. The most beautiful thing about what has happened is that Bola Tinubu’s political influence in Nigeria is coming to a sunset and it is about five minutes to midnight for him,” George said.

“If he cannot see this now, then it will be foolish of him. He brought in the APC national chairman and the vice-president and he thinks Nigeria belongs to him. So, he thought what he did in Lagos was what he could replicate at the national level and they have shown him that he cannot continue to be the lord of the manor,” he added.

“So, if he is wise, he will slow down. President Muhammadu Buhari, as an army general, has fought more battles than him and has an understanding of things. People like Tinubu and Chief Bisi Akande in Osun have always been local champions. Now, they have come to the national level of politics and they are now learning the tricks that all that glitters is not gold.” George said.

“I congratulate Saraki and Ekweremadu. They understand what Nigeria is all about,” he concluded.

Saraki had emerged Senate President on Tuesday despite being excluded by the APC via an earlier conducted mock election which produced Senator Ahmed Lawan as the party’s choice.
