Chief Bode George

A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olabode George, has stated that he will dump Nigeria for Togo if the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu emerges President of Nigeria come 2023.

Chief Olabode George said this in an interview with MUDIAGA AFFE on the state of insecurity in the nation, his plans to contest the 2023 presidential election, and the problems in his party, among others.

He was asked:

You had also recently expressed desire to challenge the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in the next election. Why did you make a direct challenge?


He said: “It is a challenge. It would be the most illogical and most disruptive issue to have him (Tinubu) elected as President.

“If this happens, I will disown Nigeria to take the citizenship of Togo or any other country. Look, what this fellow did in my state, all the lies and the most painful thing was that on the day of the election (2019 election) two bullion vans drove in the daylight to his house and what did Prof Itse Sagay say, that he (Tinubu) had been a very wealthy man before.

“Where was he wealthy? If his (Sagay’s) conclusion was that, then something is wrong. Let us call a spade a spade and stop deceiving ourselves.

“So, if that is the way they want to do it, then I am ready to face him (Tinubu).
