I will wait for election tribunal ruling before leaving Nigeria – Bode George
Mr Bode George, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, on Tuesday, said he would wait for the outcome of the presidential election petitions tribunal before leaving the country.
The former Nigeria Port Authority chairman said this when he appeared on Arise Television Morning Show.
George had earlier vowed to leave Nigeria if Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress wins the presidential election held February 25.
However, Tinubu won the election, as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission and the PDP chief has maintained his stand to relocate to another country.
“I am almost 80 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,” he said.
