Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Olabode George has reacted to a recent comment by the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Tinubu, while speaking at a colloquium to celebrate his 66th birthday, said that the PDP will never return to power, a comment that did not go down well with Bode-George. Speaking to Independent, George said;
“First of all, let me ask Tinubu, is he, God? Or has he gotten the powers of God that he can see the future? I think that is a rubbish statement to make from a leader.
If that is what he thinks, I think it is a wishful thinking. He will soon realise that everything that has a beginning has an end, and that is the power of the Almighty, the One who was, who is and will forever be.
There is no human being that lives perpetually. There are three things in life you don’t control -the day you were born, the tribe in which you were born(whether you are Chinese, African or American) and the day you will exit. That shows you there is a Being and power more than us.
So, when people get up and make such statements that Tinubu made, that PDP will never come back to power, that is arrogance being exhibited. Let me advise him that we used to say that PDP will rule this country for 60 years. Then we sat back, put everything on auto-pilot and went to sleep. Alas, we found ourselves on the deck and that was why in humility, during the last conference held by the party in Abuja, the delivery, the content and performance was the zenith of humility.”
