A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Bode George has come out to say that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu is not an indigene of Lagos State.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.

According to him, the APC candidate has yet to prove his Lagos roots beyond a reasonable doubt having failed to produce any evidence to support his claim, so people should stop thinking otherwise.

Bode added that if Tinubu says he grew up in Isale-Eko, he would know him back then because he frequently played football at the local stadium at Isale-Eko

His words, “Tinubu is not from Lagos State. You can quote me. If he says he grew up in Isale-Eko, which school did you attend? I grew up on Evans Street in Lagos. 35 Evans Street was my grandfather’s house. I went to the community school. I played football at the local stadium at Isale-Eko. That’s how people knew me.”

“It is not a solution that cannot be handled. All we are saying is give what belongs to Caesar what belongs to Caesar. Give us what belongs to us. Turn by Turn Nigeria Limited. Take for example, what I am angry about is this, the first chairman was late Papa Solomon from North-Central. The second chairman, North-Central. The third chairman, Audu Ogbe, North-Central. The fourth chairman, my oga, Dr Amadu Ali, North-Central; Baraje, from Kwara, was also North-Central. Now you have Ayu, also North-Central.”

“The South-West has never enjoyed this position since the party started almost 25 years ago. What is our crime? If you are telling us you want to rule this country, you have to weave all the tribes and all the people together. That is the major problem, and unless that is resolved, I will not vote for our own candidate.”
