A former deputy national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olabode George, has pledged to work for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu if invited.
George at seperate times said that he can never work with Tinubu being a major critic of Tinubu since the latter was Lagos State governor.
George has, however, made a surprise u-turn and said he will work with the administration of President Tinubu if invited to contribute his quota to nation-building.
The former PDP chieftain said this during an interview with journalists in Lagos.
“My reaction, like I have said, there is nothing personal. Look, I trained in the military. You know in the military, whoever is in the trench next to you is your brother,” George said.
“When you go out to say what is our mission in the military? It is to defend our country. If he comes and says look, what do you feel about this, what do you feel about that, let’s work together in the interest of this country, why would I refuse? This nation also trained me.
“The military trained me. There is no part of the world that I have not been, training and doing exercises. This country trained us.
“So, we must be able to put something back to the system that would also positively impact on the younger ones, to put a smile on their faces.”
