Bode George reveals when he will leave Nigeria following INEC’s declaration of Tinubu as winner of the 2023 presidential electionChief Bode George, a former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has disclosed when he intends to fulfill his promise of leaving Nigeria following INEC’s announcement of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as winner of the presidential election.
Recall that Bode George had pledged to relocate to a Togo if Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, wins the presidential election.
Bode was on Arise Television today, March 28, and was asked when he will leave Nigeria since Tinubu has been declared winner of the election.
Bode answered that he is going to wait on the judiciary to make decision on the outcome of the election.
Bode said, “I am almost eighty years old, I can decide to live the rest of my life in peace. Remember, I was in the navy, I have been in almost all parts of the world, and I can still decide to go back to any place and live my life in peace; a place where water, electricity, security and food would be available; that is all I need for my children and grandchildren to be well.
“All I need to do very soon is to quit and get out of partisan politics because all of my 25 years I have been struggling, fighting, trying to make this country work.
When I will go I will decide, that’s my choice. The game is not yet over. We are going to wait on the outcome of the judiciary. I have relations here. It doesn’t mean I will never come back to Nigeria. If I said I am going to be out, that I am not going to be here, am I going to look for another job now? Nobody will employ me now.”
