For all those who have been wondering, now you have your answer on the reason for Bode George’s acrimony with Bola Tinubu.
Apparently, late sage and Yoruba nationalist, Obafemi Awolowo, is partially responsible for why the two politicians may never see eye-to-eye.
George, who’s a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, let the cat out of the bag by saying that National leader of the All Progressives Congress, Tinubu, would never be like Awolowo, no matter how hard he tries.
While addressing journalists during a meeting with beneficiaries of a scheme by the Federal Institute of Industrial Research Oshodi on Monday, George said Tinubu had failed to impact positively the lives of people.
In three points, George made his case:
1. “People like Papa Lateef Jakande, General Mobolaji Johnson would be spinning wherever they are. Tinubu said he did a one-million-man march but that it is a joke.”
2. “For 16 years they (APC) took us to a bridge that led us nowhere and now we are looking for the road to freedom because they have taken us to a point that future generations will not forgive them for.”
3. “Papa Awolowo did so much for the Western region and the nation’s education and that is why every March 6, we remember him. The hood does not make a monk. He (Tinubu) started wearing round glasses, wearing papa’s caps and raising two fingers but he has forgotten the two fingers now.”
