A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George, has vowed to relocate to Ghana if Asiwaju Bola Tinubu becomes Nigeria's president in 2023.
Bode George: I will relocate to Ghana if Tinubu becomes president
George said Tinubu hasn't done anything to prove that he deserves to be honoured by Nigerians.
George said that Tinubu's aim is to install his family members in sensitive positions if he ever becomes the president.
He also added that the former Lagos state governor hasn't done anything to deserve the coveted seat.
Recall that on January 10, 2022, Tinubu announced to Nigerians that he has informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his intention to succeed him come 2023.
Tinubu also said becoming Nigeria's president has been a lifelong ambition for him.
“I have informed the president of my intention but I have not informed Nigerians yet. I’m still consulting.
"And I have no problem consulting. I have not set a parameter of limitation to the extent of how many people I will consult,” Tinubu told State House correspondents after a meeting with Buhari at the Aso Presidential Villa.
However, George in a press briefing in Lagos on Saturday, March 19, 2022, said he would cease to be part of Nigeria if Tinubu's lifelong ambition becomes a reality.
He said, “I am happy the president has signed the new electoral bill. If by whatever chance he (referring to Tinubu) gets to the villa, I won’t be part of this country.
“And I am not joking. I can go to Ghana, live in Ghana and be watching with binoculars from afar. You will see what will happen.
“This is Alpha Beta in Lagos. He will create some Alter Beta somewhere to carry your money. His wife will now be senate president. His son will be governor of Lagos. His daughter will be Iyaloja of Nigeria.
“What has he done to prove that he deserves to be honoured by anybody in this country?”
“Nothing personal. In fact, my niece called me. She said ‘some of their people are spinning that he gives me money. That Bola gives me money’.
“Let him bring the money. I will tell him to follow me to Lagos Island — people who are hungry are there. I grew up there — in Lagos Island.”
Tinubu and his supporters have continued to criss-cross the country to consult with political stakeholders and traditional rulers.
