“I Want To Make Heaven” – Bode George Explains Why He Won’t Be At Tinubu’s Inauguration
Bode George, a former PDP deputy national chairman, has said he will not attend Bola Tinubu, the president-electinauguration ,’s and swearing-in ceremony.
The elder statesman was questioned if he would comply and attend Bola Tinubu’s inauguration if the Supreme Court upholds the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) pronouncement of the All Progressive Congress (APC) as the victor of the election during an interview with Arise TV.
George claimed that he is not attending to the event not because he despises Tinubu personally but rather because Bode stands up for the truth and is not an APC member.
“As a civilised and indefatigable Nigerian who has been trained by this nation both in the military, it’s not about Bode George, the question is, will the country be happy?
“Well, when they[the Supreme Court]deliver the judgement we’ll read it and our lawyers will interpret it for us. But to say that I’ll now physically carry myself to the swearing-in, when it’s not even my party, for the celebration of what?
“I pray that God will work on their [Supreme Court judges] minds because prayer is more powerful than ordinary human power. As Christian we must say the truth… It’s only the truth that’ll set you free. That’s what God wants us to do.
“I want to appear there on the day of resurrection. I want to be able to stand up to my creator. If they invite me I won’t go because it’s not my party. I don’t hate Bola. He’s not my enemy but we’re talking about issues that affect our nation.”
