This was contained a a statement signed today by Director of Media and Publicity, APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga to disclaim the information.
According to the statement, “the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu did not issue any statement on Chief Bode George. The viral statement in circulation purportedly signed by him is fake.”
Recall that the news went viral on Wednesday when Tinubu assured the former National Vice Chairman of the PDP that he would not be victimised for not supporting him.
“A capable opposition is a fundamental requirement of good governance, pushing the incumbent administration to be its best self or face electoral oblivion at the next election.
“In your many years in opposition in Lagos, you have never been victimised or persecuted; neither by me nor by any of the Governors who came after me,” he said.
