Popular Fela Anikulapo’s song, “Trouble dey sleep, yanga go wake am”, were Chief Bode George’s statement while reacting to Chief Bisi Akande’s Book that has generated a lot of controversies among Yoruba leaders since its publication and launch in Lagos earlier this month.
According to Chief George, the former Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Deputy National Chairman, Southwest, the Book titled: “My Participations”, forwarded by Professor Wole Soyinka, is considered unfit for the Nigerian society now because of selective writing style and because the election year is around the corner.
Chief Bode George said, Chief Bisi Akande, in no small measure, praised Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, (BAT), while he spoke against Pa. Ayo Adebanjo who is 10 years older than himself.
Chief George is of the opinion that, Chief Akande’s selective preference of Asiwaju Tinubu is a way of projecting the former Lagos state Governor as the President ahead of 2023.
He enjoined the 83 years old Akande to go reconcile with the 93 years old Pa. Ayo Adebanjo, who according to Chief George, is not only a father, but also a grandfather, and great grandfather, for peace to reign among the Southwest leaders and for the sake of posterity.
The PDP Chieftain also advised Chief Akande to make necessary amendments or adjustments in his released Autobiography, ‘My Participations’ before it is too late.
