Don't Set Your House On Fire Because Of Tinubu's Ambition - Bode George Blasts Akande

A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Bode George has condemned Chief Bisi Akande over the content of his recently released autobiography, ‘My Participations.’

George who accused Akande of throwing caution to the wind just because he wants to satisfy the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu called on the former Osun State Governor to immediately withdraw his book from circulation and apologize to Yoruba elders.

He said Akande in his book has done something capable of setting his house on fire and leaving a bad legacy, adding that such behaviours and statements are not expected from someone of his age and status.

The PDP chieftain added that Akande’s book is a very shameful piece of work and that is why many people mentioned in the autobiography and other stakeholders have been coming out openly to reject claims made in the book.

“Akande must apologize openly to Yoruba elders. The attitude that he displayed is not acceptable in a civilized society. Is it his legacy to dishonour Yoruba elders?” the statement reads.

“At his age, Akande should not set his house on fire because of Tinubu’s ambition. I felt very bad as a Yoruba man and as a Nigerian. He has maligned Yoruba elders and highly respectable people in the country.

“He was busy giving kudos to Bola Tinubu. Baba Akande is from Osun State and Tinubu is the only man that he could single out to praise.

“From the reaction to his book, you must have heard what Baba Adebanjo said. How are we going to be regarded by others? Is that the right thing to do?

“Baba Akande should withdraw the book that he has authored. It is very shameful. He is older than me and I don’t expect an elderly person to behave in that manner. He must apologize to those he has offended.”
