A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George, has said he will wait for the outcome of the petitions filed by his party’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi, at the tribunal over the conduct of February 25 presidential election before he will decide to leave the country.
Recall that George had pledged to leave the country if the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu won the election.
The former PDP deputy national chairman, who spoke on Arise Television programme, ‘Morning Show‘ on Tuesday said leaving the country is his choice.
He, however, said he is going to wait on the judiciary to make pronouncements on the outcome of the presidential election.
“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, 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.
