George, who was a guest of Channels Television’s Politics Today on Friday, March 29, was also reacting to Tinubu's speech on Thursday, March 28, where he admonished Nigerians to always pray for Nigeria and stop cursing the country.

The elder statesman said that President Tinubu’s speech is very heart-warming but Nigerians would want him to translate what he said into giving hope to them.

“Those are all appeals, what should follow is let there be some methodology economically, physically to ensure that you give hope to the people, especially young people who have no jobs, no future, no hope; that is what drives people in the opposite direction.
“And once there is abject poverty in the land, people will remain angry. I feel for our people and I want him (Tinubu) to translate what he has said which is quite heart-warming into giving the people a lot of hope,” George said.

George also insisted that there was no way the 1999 Constitution could solve the issue of insecurity in the country.

He said:

“There is no way the system of governance with this constitution we are running can resolve the problems of this nation. Take the security part of it. What is the total population of police? How can they effectively manage communities? It’s impossible. They need to revisit the constitution and approach the seriousness of having to establish state police in each state. That will complement the national police.
“The constitution is the major drawback.”
