Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Bode George, has said he would leave Nigeria after the outcome of the presidential election petitions currently in tribunal.
He disclosed this today while speaking on Arise News Television’s “The Morning Show.”
Recall that he had earlier vowed to leave Nigeria if Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress emerged the winner in the presidential election held on 25th February.
However, Tinubu eventually won the election, as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The PDP Chieftain has insisted that he will leave the country.
“I am almost 80 years old, I can decide to live the rest of my life in peace. Remember, I was in the Navy, I have been in almost all parts of the world, and I can still decide to go back to any place and live my life in peace; a place where water, electricity, security and food would be available; that is all I need for my children and grandchildren to be well.
“All I need to do very soon is to quit and get out of partisan politics because all of my 25 years I have been struggling, fighting, trying to make this country work.
“When I will go, I will decide, that’s my choice. The game is not yet over.
“We are going to wait on the outcome of the judiciary. I have relations here, but it doesn’t mean I will never come back to Nigeria. If I said I am going to be out, that I am not going to be here, am I going to look for another job now? Nobody will employ me now,” he said.
