The Lagos state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will not probe former Governors, Babatunde Fashola and Bola Tinubu.
This was disclosed by the Publicity Secretary of APC in Lagos State, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, while reacting to a call made by a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief, Bode George, for the probe of former governors of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Babatunde Fashola over what he termed “apparent reckless misappropriation of Lagos state taxpayers’ money”
The APC told Bode George to shut his mouth and accept the defeat the PDP suffered at both State and National level in the just concluded general elections in the country.
”Why is Bode George finding it difficult to believe that the game is over for him in Nigeria politics talk less of Lagos State? Who will tell Bode George that nobody takes him serious again in matters of Nigerian politics? Who will persuade Chief Bode George to quit politics now in his own interest?”.
”What is giving Bode George the courage to believe that President Buhari will probe Asiwaju BAT (Bola Ahmed Tinubu) and Fashola, who are the real drivers of change in Nigeria because a Bode George said so?”.
”How can a jail bird who plundered and looted NPA, and who just got pardoned the other day because of 2015 elections forget easily that he is part of the problem of Nigeria and not part of the solution? Did Bode George know that his case at NPA and the fraudulent amnesty granted by the former President may be revisited?.
”How can we forget that Chief George imposed Jimi Agbaje on Lagos PDP and caused a big crisis at Oregun Lagos where the party conducted its primaries? How can we forget that Chief Bode George kept the funds meant for his party campaigns in Lagos knowing fully well that there is no road to where he is going?
”How can we forget that it was this same Bode George that initiated the political brigandage and ethnic politics we saw in Lagos that nearly caused xenophobic attacks?”
”How can an old man who armed thugs all over Lagos with an instruction to kill if necessary in order to steal Lagos be the one that will tell President Buhari what to do?. Chief Bode George spoke about the cost of projects in Lagos, but the question is this: what does a hut builder know about Lekki-Ikoyi bridge? What does this carpenter know about gold? What does this failed politician know about good governance and service delivery?”
It will be recalled that on Wednesday 19th August 2015, Chief Bode George of the Peoples Democratic Party urged President Muhammadu Buhari to Probe the past two administrations in Lagos State.
