Bode George should go and beg Obasanjo –Oyinlola



Bode George should go and beg Obasanjo –Oyinlola

A former governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola has advised Chief Olabode George to go back to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, seek forgiveness from him and stop attacking his benefactors.

Prince Oyinlola stated this on Saturday in a reaction to Chief George’s interview in a weekend newspaper where he described Obasanjo’s Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM) as a deceit and waste of time while attacking its promoters.


Prince Oyinlola, who described Chief George as his senior whom he respected, took exceptions to the PDP chieftain’s attack on leaders of the CNM in which Obasanjo is a key member. He counselled Chief George to, as a Yoruba man; know that it is uncharitable to be rude to a senior citizen like Obasanjo who was his benefactor.


“Rather than attack current efforts at rebuilding Nigeria, I will advise Chief Bode George to retrace his steps and queue up in the CNM. I say so because, whatever he is today in politics is a product of Obasanjo’s magnanimous efforts. In the same vein, I state without any fear of contradiction that if Obasanjo has ten enemies today in Nigeria, Chief Bode George made eight for him – if not the whole lot. So, I plead with him to go back to Obasanjo and seek forgiveness. His present sustained attack on Obasanjo and all others who had helped him (George) one way or the other in the past is against our tradition in Yoruba land.


“I am also interested in that part of his statement where he described the CNM as a waste of time and a deceit by its promoters. I must say that I was surprised that someone of Chief Bode George’s pedigree and training would hastily write off a project carefully planned by seasoned minds. The CNM is a reaction to the inadequacies of the system we have. It is not a waste of time and cannot be a waste of time. It is designed to rescue Nigeria and build a new generation of leaders for our country.


“I also want to educate Chief George and all others who may be thinking like him that the Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM) is NOT the Third Force; rather, it is THE FORCE.”


And I believe he should know this given the fact of his experience in politics and political engineering,” Oyinlola said.
