Bode George, chieftain of the Official Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Nigeria, says people pushing for Bola Tinubu, former Lagos governor, to emerge president in 2023 need medical examination.
The PDP board of trustees (BoT) member made the comment on Wednesday while speaking on an Arise TV programme.
George also reiterated that he would rather cease to be a Nigerian than see Tinubu emerge as the president of Nigeria.
He claimed the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain is not fit for the presidency and “something is wrong with” those advocating for him to be president.
“I will do whatever is necessary to review and renounce my citizenship if that happens. That kind of fellow? Do you think Lagos is better off? We live here. Look at the state. No drains. Look at what they put at the bar beach,” the PDP chieftain said.
“What is going on? This is my state. We have people who are former governors. If they’d behaved like what he is doing, they’d have been nothing to him.
“So, to have in my head that that kind of character is nominated to be Nigeria’s president… Please, go check all of them [Tinubu supporters]. Something is wrong with them.”
Although Tinubu has not yet expressed his interest in running for office in 2023, many of his supporters have been urging him to contest the presidency.
