An elder statesman and prominent politician in Lagos State, Chief Bode George, has spoken about his promise to leave Nigeria if Bola Tinubu of the APC is elected president. During his interview on AIT News, the PDP leader was asked to speak concerning his plans to fulfill his promise following Tinubu's emergence as the president-elect.
Addressing the topic, Bode George said, "It is an interesting topic. I will congratulate Tinubu if he wins through the normal election process. I wonder what there is to enjoy as we have been guaranteed 70 years, and you are close to your grave once you cross that age. You should have fulfilled your desires for your nation by that age and lived the rest of your life in peace. However, with the myriad of challenges facing the country, I am intrigued that the party in power can still claim that we voted for them.
He added, "A faulty foundation cannot stand. If the INEC chairman has found a glitch during the election that affected the normal electronic transmission of results, the most civilized thing to do is redo the election. It is fine with me if we carry out another election and Tinubu wins. Why should I be on a sinking ship? Exile is still an option for me. I can live anywhere I want at this age. I can live in a neighboring country like Cotonou, Togo, or Ghana. Nigerians are tired, and the younger generations are no longer interested in APC or PDP.
