2023 Presidency: Bode George Reveals Reason For Shunning Tinubu

Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George has disclosed why he has chosen not to visit the President-elect, Bola Tinubu.

George made the disclosure while confirming a recent visit from some members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to reports, the delegation was led by Retired Justice Isola Olorunmibe and also included the leader of the Governance Advisory Council in Lagos State, Tajudeen Olusi, among others.

Sharing details of the meeting, the PDP Chieftain said the delegation came to offer an apology over some issues in the past and to seek his support for Tinubu.

George revealed that he turned down the appeal to visit the President-elect because of the case at the election tribunal.

“First of all, they came to apologise for whatever they had done in the past, and I said I have moved on and have nothing against his person.

“We may disagree on policies but we must not be disagreeable. Secondly, they wanted me to pay him a courtesy call.

“I was like, what are you talking about? I am the man representing Southwest in the national confines of our party and I’m a life BoT member.

“So, how do I add that together? We are still in court, how do I now say I want to go and greet him? Greet him for what?

“What will my party and my people think about me? Once we finish at the court, then we’ll know what to do.

“The PDP members and I present were very clear in our mind that going to him now will be a bit suicidal. I’m still an irridentist PDP man”, he stated.
