A former Military Administrator of Ondo State, Chief Olabode George, has reconfirmed his threat to leave the country if the then presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, now President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, wins the 2023 election.
The Independent National Electoral Commission on March 1 declared the ex-Governor of Lagos State winner of the poll.
Speaking in an interview, Chief George said he has not changed his position.
The former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, said: “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.
“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 because I know there might be a hell of a problem.”
On the country he plans relocating to, George told Sunday PUNCH: “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.”
