Bode George, a former deputy national leader of the PDP, said President Bola Tinubu did a good job in his first months in office.
Chief George made the statement during an interview with Politics Today on Channels Television on Tuesday.
He asserted that while Tinnub’s early tenure as Nigeria’s president was far from flawless, it was far better than his tenure as governor of Lagos state from May 1999 to May 2007.
Chief George called Tinubu a power broker and added that he (George) is not an opponent of the President while claiming that he is still a reliable member of the PDP.
However, the PDP leader said the president must be good to the country’s people and resources.
He said, “The major difference between Bola and me is his methodology, his managerial style, unlike mine.
“My background is in the military and I am a logistician in the military. You don’t lead your people into war without serious enough planning, intelligence gathering.”
Assessing the Tinubu administration in the last three weeks, George said: “It is not a 100 meter race.
He (Tinubu) has to manage his people and manage the resources of this country for the betterment of this country.
It’s just getting started.”
“It’s not perfect, but it makes sense,” says the PDP staunch.
At least, we knew him better when he was in Lagos.
Maybe at the time he was much younger and inexperienced, but now Lagos is not Abuja.”
Meanwhile, George said he would take permission from the PDP should the President approach him to work together for the good of the country.
However, he expressed confidence that the PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, would emerge victorious at the Abuja Presidential Petitions Court.
George said, “Let’s wait for the results of the judiciary.
The process has not finished.
The day the process ends and the court proclaims him president, we have no other way to fight than to pray for Nigeria.”
