A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said he has not abandoned his wish to go on exile if the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Bola Tinubu win the February 25, 2023.

The party’s chieftain reaffirmed his position while granting a television interview on Sunday, March 5, 2023.

According to INEC, Tinubu came victorious with 8.8 million votes.

The presidential candidate of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar came second with 6.9 million votes.

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, had 6.1 million votes.

Before the presidential election, the PDP chieftain, Bode George had at least on 5 occasions vowed to travel out of the country if Tinubu of the APC loses the presidential election.

George said he has not yet decided where he will be traveling to, but his plan to go on exile still stands.

George said he has the plan to retire to “anywhere in any part of the world” because Tinubu’s emergence as the president “might be a hell of a problem”.

“That is still on my plan. If I decide on what to do, I wish you well. I’m not looking for a job, I have everything I want and how much can I eat? I also have my children and they are no longer kids,” he said.

“They are all mature so what am I looking for? My wife is there. She will take good care of me. I will stay in Nigeria depending on the outcome of this[post-election litigation] because I know there might be a hell of a problem.

“You know I am a military lord so I can go anywhere in any part of the world and I will be looking at you people.

“I have even decided that having put 25 years each in the military and politics which is 50 years of my life in the public domain, I need rest so whatever I see at the end of this thing. I’m retiring from partisan politics and will be enjoying the rest of my life.”
