The former military governor of Ondo State and leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bode George, has told the President-elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to stop misleading people about his real origin and background. He instructed Bola Ahmed Tinubu to tell Nigerians about his other affiliated backgrounds and sources apart from what he has been claiming till the present moment.
According to the interview that Bode George granted to the Sunday Punch, George said that Tinubu has been claiming Lagos State as his origin. He furthered his clarifications by saying that the claim that Tinubu is from Lagos State is not close to the truth as he is from Iragbiji in the Boripe Local Government Area of Osun State.
There have been a plethora of allegations against the President-elect of the country under the umbrella of the All Progressives Congress (APC). Issues like his questionable wealth, ill health, allegations of certificate forgery and corruption, bagman to drug (heroin) traffickers, money laundering ring investigation and place of origin have been questioned by people.
When the Punch asked Chief Bode George about Tinubu’s Origin, he said ” He is not from my state. He should now come clean because he is from Iragbiji in Osun State. Tell the truth and let the devil be ashamed. He is claiming Lagos but that is not true. “
