President-elect: Why I will not congratulate Tinubu – Bode George


Former Deputy National Chairman (South) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Bode George has explained why he’ll never congratulate the President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu

George, while speaking on Arise Television on Monday, said he has nothing personal against Tinubu.


The PDP chieftain said he only disagrees with Tinubu’s “methodologies of governance, his own ways of managing the resources of the land for the benefit of the people.”

He said:  “It’s not impacting on the people. I’m a thoroughbred Lagosian. I was born and grew up here, there is so much degradation, go to my local government.

“First of all, Femi Gbajabiamila had been here, we had discussions, I told him all the things I would want them to do in Lagos. What matters to me is that let Lagos be like the best city in the world, make life more meaningful, impact on the minds of the people positively because the power rests with the people.

“But if there is nothing rather than that, the method of management, the financial management will be completely despicable. So, I said to them I have no objections and as far as I’m concerned there is nothing personal, sir. If whatever he had done to me in the past, as a Christian, vengeance is not mine.
