Former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) deputy national chairman Bode George has explained why he won’t be at Bola Tinubu’s inauguration.
George stated that he will not be present at Tinubu’s inauguration and swearing-in ceremony not because he despises the man personally but rather because Bode stands up for the truth and is not an APC member.
In a Tuesday interview with Arise TV, George disclosed this.
The senior statesman was responding to inquiries about whether he would attend Bola Tinubu’s inauguration if the Supreme Court upheld the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) declaration of the All Progressive Congress (APC) as the election’s victor.
“It’s not about Bode George, the question is, will the country be happy, as a civilized and tenacious Nigerian who has been trained by this nation both in the military?
Well, after they [the Supreme Court] deliver the ruling, we’ll read it and have our attorneys explain it to us. But to declare that I will now physically transport myself to the swearing-in ceremony when it isn’t even my party, for what holiday?
Because prayer is more potent than regular human power, I pray that God will change the Supreme Court judges’ perspectives. Since only the truth can set you free, it is our duty as Christians to speak the truth. God commands us to carry out that action.
“I want to show up there on the day of the resurrection. I desire the strength to challenge my creator. The party is not mine, so even if they invite me, I won’t go. I don’t dislike Bola. Although he is not my enemy, we are discussing matters that concern the whole country. “.
