Bode George Tells FGov Fayose To Forgive Obasanjo And Move On

A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Bode George, has advised the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, to forgive former President Olusegun Obasanjo and move on.



He told Fayose that God had already fought for him by allowing him to return as governor of Ekiti eight years after his impeachment.


George said he was aware that his imprisonment for financial impropriety was “nothing but political persecution” and that was why he was later exonerated by the Supreme Court.

He, however, said he never had the intention of becoming the Chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees and therefore doubted if that was the reason for his incarceration.

George said, “My advice to my younger brother in Ekiti State is that it is time for him to forgive and forget and let sleeping dogs lie. He was impeached but God reinstated him as governor after eight years. What more can a man ask for?

In Nigeria political seen everyone is innocent. Even Bode George that went to prison after finding him guilty is also innocent. Abeg which Supreme Court is he talking about? Looters caught deny looting, killers caught deny killing, everyone is in denial.Who is milking our country? Even Dezani claimed to be innocent. I don tire mehn

There is a case called George v FRN. In that case, the Supreme court quashed The conviction of Bode George. The Supreme court said that there was no offence called CONTRACT SPLITTING in the laws of Nigeria as at the time Bode George was accused of same and convicted. Awarding contracts in phases was not an offence. The court held that though the Minister of Transport made circulars to prevent heads of Government parastatals from awarding contracts above a certain threshold, that circular was not published, was not brought to the attention of Bode George before NPA awarded repair contracts in phases when he was Chairman of Board NPA, and cannot be used to contravene Section 36 (8) and (12) of the Nigerian constitution.
