Bode George blasts Bayo Onanuga, says ‘he’s not Lagosian and can’t dictate who the people’ll relate with’
A former Deputy National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George, has slammed Mr. Bayo Onanuga, a spokesman for the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, for warning Igbo people in Lagos against interfering in politics in the state.
According to the report published by Vanguard, George claimed that Onanuga is not a Lagosian by any standard and he shouldn’t be making unacceptable statements against any Nigerian tribe in Lagos.
Recall that Onanuga said that Lagos is Yoruba land and Igbos shouldn’t interfere in Lagos politics. His statement didn’t go down well with many Nigerians but he made it clear that he won’t apologize for it.

According to Vanguard, Bode George, while reacting to Onanuga’s comment, said that the Igbo people in Lagos contribute a lot to the state, adding that Onanuga shouldn’t be making inciting statements against them. He claimed that Onanuga isn’t a Lagosian, adding that he shouldn’t tell the people who they can relate to.
“Bayo Onanuga is not a Lagosian by any standard. These fellows should not make such unacceptable comments against any Nigerian tribe in Lagos. He should not come from his village and tell us who we can relate to in Lagos.”
