As the year unfolds, the thoughts of who will be the next Nigerian President 2023 begins to rise among the aspirants and this creates an awareness among the citizens with promises of another major presidential election.
And so its the case of a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Deputy National Chairman of the party, Chief Olabode George who has recently taken to the media his intention to contest for 2023 presidency.
He made this claim adding that, he will only contest if national leader of the All Progressive Congress, (APC) Bola Tinubu decides to contest too.
The PDP chieftain said Tinubu should not be the president of Nigeria because he is not a good manager of resources and has no respect for the poor.

According to our source, Pa George said “The moment I read that the APC will zone the Presidency to the South-West so that Bola can contest, I said to myself, I have put in far more and I would contest against him.
“Why? Because we all experienced what he did as a manager of this state. Whatever it takes, if he comes out, I’ll fight against him.
“To be assertive and to confirm, I am very much interested in the presidential race, he added.
However, when he was asked if he had a personal disagreement with Tinubu, George said he just disapproves of the national leader’s methodology and has no personal issues.
In his own words, he said and I quote: “There is nothing personal. It is just about his methodology, his system of governance, the lack of respect for the poor people of this country.
“My major interest is not in being a candidate or becoming the president of Nigeria but finding a solution to various challenges plaguing the country,” George added.
