Peoples Democratic Party Chieftain in Lagos, Chief Bode George has asked a former Governor of the State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to stop trying to be like Chief Obafemi Awolowo, because they had nothing in common.
George, while addressing journalists during a meeting with beneficiaries of a scheme by the Federal Institute of Industrial Research Oshodi, on Monday, said Awolowo, during his time, ensured free education across the Western region when he was the premier.
He, however, said that Tinubu had failed to impact positively on the lives of people but was only interested in enriching himself.
George argued that Tinubu, was only trying to deceive the people by wearing Awolowo’s kind of cap and then wearing round glasses
He also said: “People like papa Lateef Jakande, General Mobolaji Johnson would be spinning wherever they are. Tinubu said he did a one-million-man march but that it is a joke.
“For 16 years they (APC) took us to a bridge that led us nowhere and now we are looking for the road to freedom because they have taken us to a point that future generations will not forgive them for.
“Papa Awolowo did so much for the Western region and the nation’s education and that is why every March 6, we remember him. The hood does not make a monk. He (Tinubu) started wearing round glasses, wearing papa’s caps and raising two fingers but he has forgotten the two fingers now.”
