“Bode George is having personal issues with Bola Tinubu”, says Fani Kayode
“It is very clear first of all that Chief Bode George has some kind of personal acts to grind with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
“And for me, it is really tragic, seeing an elders statesman and somebody I have immense respect for to stand on TV or sit on television and begin to use words like clown and others against a man that has been a contemporary of his over the years.
“They may have political differences but to bring such personal animosity into a political arena is something that gives me deep concern.
“I think he is obsessed, I think he is virtually delusional. I think that his hatred for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has beclouded his judgement.
“I think, frankly speaking, there is nothing that Asiwaju can ever do to appeal or please people like Chief Bode George.
“He has made up his mind that Asiwaju is a demon. He has made up his mind that he will never support him. He’s made up his mind that he will demonise him for the rest of his life and that’s okay because it really doesn’t matter to us.
“The most important thing for us is what the people think and what the electorate thinks what they will do, not what Chief Bode George, his delusions, his obsessions manifest in terms of his worthy.”
