Bode George speaks on promise he made to leave Nigerian if Tinubu becomes President

As he had vowed to do if president-elect, Bola Tinubu, wins the presidential election, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George, says he will soon be proceeding on exile.

Speaking in an interview with Punch on Sunday, the PDP chieftain said although he is yet to decide on his destination, his self-imposed exile remains in the works.

He said he would proceed to “anywhere in any part of the world” because Tinubu’s victory “might be a hell of a problem”.

“That is still on my plan. If I decide on what to do, I wish you well. I’m not looking for a job, I have everything I want and how much can I eat? I also have my children and they are no longer kids,” he said.


“They are all mature so what am I looking for? My wife is there. She will take good care of me. I will stay in Nigeria depending on the outcome of this[post-election litigation] because I know there might be a hell of a problem.

“You know I am a military lord so I can go anywhere in any part of the world and I will be looking at you people.

“I have even decided that having put 25 years each in the military and politics which is 50 years of my life in the public domain, I need rest so whatever I see at the end of this thing. I’m retiring from partisan politics and will be enjoying the rest of my life.”
