The Akwa Ibom state chapter of the Tinubu Support Group has lambasted Bode George over his comment on the presidential ambition of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Newspot reports that the chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party had in a recent interview described the presidential aspiration of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress as a “huge joke.”
But in a chat with reporters in Uyo, the Coordinator of TSG in the state, Hon Ifiok Inyang berated George for mocking Tinubu, who is being celebrated across the political divide of this country.
Inyang added that the PDP stalwart’s comment on Tinubu’s presidential bid shows that George is a primitive critic still living in the ancient days.
He said: “Bode George is entitled to his opinion and we have freedom of expression. So, if he says Tinubu, who is being celebrated across the political divide of this country, made a declaration that is a huge joke, it, therefore, means that he is still living in the ancient days, not the world of today.”
Inyang described Tinubu’s declaration as the “greatest political news of the year that has ignited a spark that triggered two APC members to also declare their interest in the presidential race.
He added, “It came strong and powerful, reverberating across the entire direction of our national political landscape. It stirred the somewhat somnolent political space of activities in the land into a frenzy.
“Shortly after it broke, it ignited a spark that compelled at least two other top members of our party, the APC, to also declare interest in running for the office as president of our motherland. The days head will be interesting to witness.”
