Bode Geroge denies saying INEC chair met Tinubu in Lagos

A former Deputy National Chairman of the People’s Democratic (PDP), Chief Bode George, has denied the report that he said Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu, met with Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in Lagos State at the weekend.

An unconfirmed report had said that Prof. Yakubu, flew into Lagos, on Saturday night, and left in a private jet owned by Tinubu.

In a rebuttal, on Sunday evening, Bode George stated that the claim “must have emanated from demented souls” and was a strategy to cause confusion in the polity.

He was quoted as saying, “I don’t work at the Control Tower or Cargo Section of the airport. I am not an official of INEC, so how will I know the movement of INEC Chairman?

“Everybody knows he is in Abuja as the Chief Returning Officer of the presidential election.”

The politician recalled that after voting, he returned home with his wife to watch coverage of the election by various television stations.

Bode George said nobody could use him to score cheap political points, revealing prominent Nigerians have been calling “because of this senseless statement.”

On election results, the PDP chieftain insists they should be transmitted immediately, adding that he suspects those against BVAS fabricated the comment linked to him.
