Chief Bode George, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party has given President Bola Tinubu a pass mark after three weeks in office.
According to him, the changes he has made so far was better than his time as Lagos State governor between May 1999 and May 2007.
Chief George who is a former Deputy Chairman of the PDP gave the praise while speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme on Tuesday.
When asked about his assessment of Tinubu’s administration’s first three weeks George said it is early days to give a rating.
When further asked to describe the performance of Tinubu in the last 22 days as Nigeria’s President, the Lagos-based PDP stalwart said, “It’s not perfect but reasonable. At least, it is better than what we had known before when he was in Lagos. Maybe he was much younger at that time and had no experience but now, Lagos is not Abuja.”
On if he is willing to work with Tinubu, George said he would take permission from the PDP should the President approach him to work together for the good of the country.
He also reiterated his membership of the PDP noting he is not an enemy of the president despite their agelong political rivalry.
“The major difference between Bola and I is his methodology, his managerial style, is unlike mine. I have a background in the military and I am a logistician in the military. You don’t carry your men to war without adequately doing your serious planning, intelligence gathering,” the PDP chieftain said.
He, however, expressed confidence that his party and its candidate in the February 25 poll, Atiku Abubakar would emerge victorious at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja.
“Let’s wait for the outcome of the judiciary. The process is not over. The day the process is over and the court pronounces him as the President, we have no way to fight but to pray for Nigeria,” he said.
