Lagos, Dec. 13, 2022 – Chief Bode George, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says Chief Bola Tinubu, the Presidential Candidate of All Progressives Congress, is not an indigene of Lagos contrary to his claims.

George, who spoke on Tuesday morning on Arise TV, said that Tinubu had yet to prove his Lagos roots beyond reasonable doubt, having failed to produce any evidence to support his claim.

 “Tinubu is not from Lagos State. You can quote me. If he says he grew up in Isale-Eko, which school did you attend?

‘I grew up on Evans Street in Lagos. 35 Evans Street was my grandfather’s house. I went to the community school. I played football at the local stadium at Isale-Eko. That’s how people knew me,” he said.

George said the reconciliation within PDP would happen if the party’s hierarchy would do the needful by giving to Caesar what truly belongs to him.

“It is not a solution that cannot be handled. All we are saying is give what belongs to Caesar to Caesar. Give us what belongs to us. Turn by Turn Nigeria Limited.

“Take for example, what I am angry about is this, the first chairman was late Papa Solomon from North-Central. The second chairman, North-Central.

“The third chairman, Audu Ogbe, North-Central. The fourth chairman, Dr Amadu Ali, North-Central, Baraje, from Kwara, was also North-Central. Now you have Ayu, also North-Central.

“The South-West has never enjoyed this position since the party started almost 25 years ago.

“What is our crime? If you are telling us you want to rule this country, you have to weave all the tribes and all the people together. That is the major problem,’’ he said. (GBN)
