PDP chieftain, Chief Olabode George has given reasons for his refusal to work with APC national leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The Former deputy national chairman of the PDP stated that he will never work with Tinubu because of his “Godfather kind of politics”.
In an interview with Punch, George said;
“I don’t believe in Bola’s (Tinubu) concept of politics. Their concept of operation in the APC is different from the way I was brought up. A tree cannot make a forest. That is the difference between us. Let us collectively take up the mantle, not Godfather kind of politics.”
Bode-George also commended the governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode for the great job he was doing in Lagos state.
He said, “This young man (Governor Akinwunmi Ambode) is doing a great job in Lagos and I am impressed. I went round recently and passed through Epe while going to Ondo State. I passed through the route several times as a governor of old Ondo State in 1990.
“ I was stupefied by what I saw. He is opening up the ancient villages with good road network and the quality of the road is amazing. Within two years, Ambode has outperformed Babatunde Fashola and Tinubu combined, in terms of infrastructural development, maybe because he is from the civil service.He is better than both of them with his achievements. But I can convince our people that when we settle the PDP crisis, we will present somebody who would be hundred times better than Ambode.”
