A former deputy National chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George, has said he will gladly work with the administration of President Bola Tinubu if invited to contribute his quota to nation-building.
George stated this responding to questions from to questions from journalists who converged in his office in Ikoyi. According to him, he has no personal issues with the president.
In March 2022, George said he will go on exile if Tinubu wins the 2023 Presidential election. However, when the politician was recently asked whether he would agree to serve the country if appointed by the current administration, he said;
‘’My reaction, like I have said, there is nothing personal. Look, I trained in the military. You know in the military whoever is in the trench next to you is your brother. When you go out to say what is our mission in the military? It is to defend our country. If he comes and says look, what do you feel about this, what do you feel about that, let’s work together in the interest of this country, why would I refuse? This nation also trained me.
The military trained me. There is no part of the world that I have not been, training and doing exercises. This country trained us. So, we must be able to put something back to the system that would also positively impact on the younger ones, to put a smile on their faces.’’
