Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Bode George, said he has forgiven President-elect Bola Tinubu.
Gatekeepers News reports that George made the disclosure in a chat with journalists at his Ikoyi office.
He also analysed the outgoing administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
George declared that he failed to live up to expectations.
The PDP leader added that the Buhari administration did not impact the lives of Nigerians positively, saying he failed to provide security which was his core responsibility.
He said, “My personal assessment is that he failed, not completely in every sector, but if you do an examination and say you must have a minimum of 33 per cent, then you can go to the next class, but they did not attain that 33 per cent. I can give them maybe about five per cent, even the five per cent requires a lot of retrospection. The most important thing you must guarantee to your people, as a government, is security of lives and property, who is safe now?
“So it is very very disheartening and heartbreaking that he failed in his number one job, which is to guarantee security of lives and property. You know when he was coming in, oga (Buhari) was telling us, I would fight corruption, I will secure the lives and properties of the people, I will do this, I will do that, all kinds of promises.
“So let’s put those promises now into his departure, because that’s what will be written on the pages of history. Whatever a leader does during his time, it is on the pages of history.”
Asked whether he would work with Tinubu if called upon, George said: “There is nothing personal, this country trained me and I have to give back.”
On his reluctance to endorse Tinubu, he said: “I have forgiven him, but you cannot forget.”
