‘It’ll be difficult to remove Tinubu, if he is sworn in’-Adebanjo
Bode George, a chieftain of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), has shared concerns about the possible inauguration of Bola Tinubu as president if the ongoing court case is not resolved before the swearing in of the president-elect.
Speaking candidly in an interview with The Guardian, on the subject of the ongoing court case and the possibility of the PDP succeeding, George appealed for justice, fairness, and equity. He stressed the importance of a timely judgment from the tribunal, expressing concerns about the potential consequences if Tinubu were to be sworn in as president while the court case was ongoing.
George emphasized that the Constitution did not mandate a fixed inauguration date, and he called for patience until all election matters were resolved.
Responding to allegations of personal grudges against Tinubu, George clarified that he believed in justice and fairness, drawing on the principles instilled in him by his family's political heritage. He emphasized that his stance was not driven by personal vendetta but by the pursuit of truth and righteousness.
