The former National Deputy Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)Chief Olabode George said was Bola Ahmed Tinubu was the worst Lagos State Governor
In this interview with a reporter, the Atona Oodua of Yorubaland speaks on the latest development in the polity as well as his rumored presidential ambition.
When quized as a Yoruba leader, don’t you think your contesting the 2023 presidential election against Asiwaju Bola Tinubu may be seen as a sign of division in the region?
We have some elders that we meet regularly. I was away for a while. When they read that they will be zoning presidency to the South-West and Bola Tinubu will be contesting, they didn’t ask for my permission; they said ‘yes, I must contest’.
They said if Tinubu must contest, I must contest. Am I not qualified by age, experience or training? I have traversed the length and breadth of this country, I see the weaknesses and strengths of every area.
It will be the greatest disservice for our nation to have him contest as a presidential candidate.
I am a true son of Lagos. Of all the governors who have ruled this state, Tinubu’s period is the worst. So, how can he succeed as President? He did virtually nothing.
The debt profile of Lagos today is so humongous. After the debt of the federal government, the next is Lagos state. Is that the person we should consider as our next president?
