JUST IN: Tinubu’s Second Term Bid In Doubt As Bode George Speaks About His Presidency




Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olabode Ibiyinka George on Sunday spoke about President Bola Tinubu’s presidency and the circumstances that led to his election victory.…CONTINUE READING

George, who believes President Bola Tinubu has only four years to spend in office, said he was very disappointed about the Supreme Court judgment that upheld Tinubu’s election victory.

According to Vanguard, Bode George said Tinubu did not win the 2023 presidential election justifiably and seamlessly.

Although he failed to reveal why he believes Tinubu won’t seek a second term in office and probably get re-elected, the PDP chieftain submitted that Justice Okoro of the Supreme Court drove Nigeria backward with his judgment.

In his words: “I listened and heard the judgment, I became very sad. As the apex body, I was very disappointed about that judgment. If he won justifiably and seamlessly, why not? No problem. There are two major areas of concern for me.


“One, Okoro redefined the status of Abuja. How? You must have the majority of votes and you must win in two-thirds of the states of the federation and Abuja. Abuja is not among the states because Abuja is not a state. I believe the Supreme Court has given a ruling in the past. So, why is Justice Okoro driving us back into the jungle? The whole world is growing.

“He has been declared and we cannot do anything more. He has four years to spend, but the pages of history when they write about this season, will they be very kind to those justices? I am not an Englishman, but I studied English. What that section means is rear it is an addition to two-thirds of the state. Maybe we need to call the king of England to come and explain to us that it is additional.

“By any definition, Abuja cannot be a state; it is like Washington DC in the United States. The numbers of states are well defined and the national capital is Washington DC. Do you think they will now treat Washington DC as a state? What is going on? For my education, I feel very bothered. It takes me to the second question.

“Democracy is the government of the people, by the people and for the people. The decision must come from the electorate to say this is the man we want and we don’t want you. That is the essence. The definition of democracy by Abraham Lincoln has not changed. Let’s take a cursory look at Kenya in the last election between Kenyatta and Odinga. Because there was a great disagreement, the Supreme Court said go and fix it, we will not appoint a president for you, let the will of the people prevail, go back to the people, and let them do it again.
