The emergence of General Muhammadu Buhari as President-elect, former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George may be heading to exile to escape being caught up in Buhari’s expected anti-corruption war.
Bode George himself has repeatedly asked what would be doing in Nigeria with Buhari in power.
He said in Lagos today: “what will I be doing here? I can decide to go and live anywhere. Look at everyone surrounding him (Buhari). So, I am not joking about it, what will I be doing here? At 70, what will I be doing here? All we have been doing to restructure the country has been lost. We have been trying to ensure balance in the polity but all that has gone. What else will I be doing here?” [myad]
