The Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Bode George stated yesterday that he will go into exile because the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC Muhammadu Buhari has won the Presidential Election.
Bode George who had earlier said in an interview with a Vanguard Correspondent in Lagos before the INEC Chairman announced the winner for the Presidential Election that he would proceed on exile if the APC wins at the federal level.
Speaking yesterday, on the PDP’s defeat at the polls, the PDP chieftain said:
“What will I be doing here? I can decide to go and live anywhere. Look at everyone surrounding him (referring to Buhari). So, I am not joking about it, what will I be doing here? At 70, what will I be doing here? All we have been doing to restructure the country has been lost. We have been trying to ensure balance in the polity but all that has gone. What else will I be doing here?”
George has been one of the fiercest critics of the APC and has consistently been at the forefront of the opposition to Buhari.
Meanwhile, the Lagos state PDP gubernatorial candidate, Jimi Agbaje, has told Lagosians not to listen to the rumours going around that he is George’s stooge.
