After a former governor of Lagos state and the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu informed President Buhari that he desires to succeed him, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party Chief Bode George, has described his ambition as a huge joke, saying presidency of Nigeria is not for characters like Tinubu.
George disclosed this in a chat with The PUNCH on Monday.
“This so-called ambition must be a huge joke. The Presidency of Nigeria is not for characters like Bola Tinubu. Look at how he mismanaged the resources of Lagos State. It is surprising that he can even dream of becoming the President of Nigeria. He is living in cuckoo land,” said George.
The former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP affirmed Tinubu would be shocked by how things will go and how he will be double-crossed by those he is trusting.
According to George, South-West had quality leaders who could produce the next President of Nigeria. He, however, said Tinubu was not one of them.
He said it would be an insult for the South-West, which is the most sophisticated region in the country to settle for Tinubu.
George also said it was unfortunate that a hallowed ground like the Presidential Villa would be the location for Tinubu to declare his ambition.
