Olabode George Vows To Tear His Passport Because Of Tinubu: See The Face Of A Shameless Worthless Politician

Where there is no shame, there is no honour. The man who is not ashamed of his sins, sins double.

Yorubas will say Oriṣiriṣi , meaning say “wonderment”. I was amazed today to see Commodore Olabode George making the headlines with his diatribes thrown at the former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Jagaban of Borgu.

Kikiki, how I wish you could see the looks on my face while writing this out, Olabode George is making headlines with the report that he would tear his passport if Tinubu emerges Nigeria’s President in 2023. The headline got me so cracked up that I have been laughing out loud and shouting Oriṣiriṣi.

Who is Bode George that is qualified to speak on corruption, nepotism, Godfatherism and maladministration?

If I start to talk now some people go ask me if Old Man Picture no dey my sitting room, but the truth is, when elders get to some certain age it is best for them to keep mute or suffer the consequences of their shameless and lousy vituperations.

Bode George is the epitome of failure, a colossal one for that matter and before I go into a comparison between Bode George and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu let me do a brief introduction of Bode George according to Google and Wikipedia, you know some people like referencing Wikipedia when advancing their arguments.

So let us type Bode George on Google Search…..Loading…

Early years

George was born on November 21, 1945, in Lagos. He earned a B.Sc and MBA.[2] Bode George became a Commodore in the Nigerian navy and was appointed Military Governor of Ondo State (1988–1990).[3] The African Concorde magazine reported that George treated the state budget as his own, spending lavishly and handing out inflated contracts in return for large kickbacks.

Second search result on Bode George…Loading…

“In October 2009, Bode George was found guilty and sentenced to jail for 30 months. The sentence was handed out by Justice Joseph Olubunmi Oyewole. The judge found the defendants guilty on 47 out of the 68 counts. … ”

It is better to die with honour than live with shame, Bode George who is above 75 years and has served a jail sentence for his role in managing the affairs of NPA should, as a matter of fact, resign to a quiet life and enjoy the proceeds of his seeds sown.
But because the man has no shame he won’t see anything wrong in further exposing himself to public ridicule.

Olabode George was a military administrator in Ondo State and according to Wikipedia, his tenure was characterized by massive corruption, Wikipedia was quoted as saying the MILAD operated the State budget like his personal farm budget, describing him as a lavish spender.

Bode George is alleged to have always manipulated his family members into choice Federal boards by virtue of his leadership position in the PDP. And yet he screams nepotism in governance.
When Tinubu was Lagos State Governor his cabinet reflected Nigerians from across the 6 Geo-Political zones.

As a former governor of Ondo State, what legacy did Olabode George leave behind?
Olabode Geroge sadly he’s a beneficiary of Tinubu’s numerous legacies he left behind in Lagos State.

As PDP National Vice-Chairman Olabode George was always on the headlines over allegations of mortgaging and selling PDP’s forms to the highest bidder. Let me take another quote from Wikipedia to buttress this.

“In August 2002, Nick Mbaezue, the leader of Anambra People’s Forum (APF) arm of the Anambra State chapter of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) accused Bode George of auctioning the PDP executive to the governor’s faction”
That was how similar complaints across the PDP states were alleged against him.

His leadership roles in the PDP has always been a subject of controversy amongst PDP leaders in the South-West.  His alleged selfish interest is always the crux of the squabbles.

We all know the running battle he had with the Late Funsho Willams family, Senator Obanikoro, Ayodele Fayose, and even with his bestie, General Olusegun Obasanjo.
Bode George was at loggerheads with all PDP leaders from the South-West, his travails with the EFCC elicited joy from his fellow PDP members.

See how Wikipedia described his EFCC travails ” He was indicted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) when it was headed by Nuhu Ribadu on charges of fraud at the NPA. However, he was widely rumoured to have been shielded from prosecution by President Olusegun Obasanjo.

His exploits at NPA led to his running battle with the EFCC which eventually led him to jail.

Bode George holds the structure of PDP in the South-West in his palms, what has he leveraged on with such powers he held for decades? How has he enhanced the growth of PDP in the South-West? Taking a swipe at Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu at every given opportunity has further exposed the deep hatred the supposed Yoruba leader has for his fellow tribesmen.

The jealous ones are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves.

They that envy others are their inferiors, Olabode George obviously has no respect for himself and his dismal records, it would only be expedient that as an elder he should do the needful and bow his head in shame, he should be reflecting on the legacies he would be leaving behind instead of bothering himself about Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s soaring popularity.

If you once forfeit the confidence of your fellow citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem. It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time-Abraham Lincoln.
He who sows iniquity shall reap shame for the man who fears no shame comes to no honour.

Two African nationals have been arrested for allegedly cheating people on the pretext of providing them oxygen cylinders, police said on Sunday.

 

The accused have been identified as Cheema Benneth (42), a native of Nigeria and Jonathan Kojo (44), a resident of Ghana.

On May 5, a man told the police that he needed an oxygen cylinder for his relative suffering from Covid-19.

 

After finding a phone number on social media, he contacted the accused, who told him to pay Rs 16,000 for an oxygen cylinder and Rs 4,000 as a transportation charge. The complainant transferred Rs 20,000 to their account, officials said.

 

The accused assured him that the cylinder would reach his address. However, the victim did not receive any cylinder and when he tried to contact the accused, they blocked his number, a senior police officer said.

 

“During the investigation, it was found that foreign nationals were involved in the cheating racket spread across India. On Thursday, police apprehended Benneth from Green Park in south Delhi. Based on his disclosure, his associate Kojo was also nabbed on Saturday,” Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime) Shibesh Singh said.

 

Police recovered 163 SIM cards, 19 mobile phones, five laptops, four debit cards and other articles from their possession.

 

During interrogation, Benneth told the police that he and his associates in India and abroad were cheating people via different modes.

 

After seeing the rising demand for oxygen cylinders in Delhi, they planned to cheat people via this mode. They flashed their mobile numbers on different social media platforms, promising to provide oxygen cylinders to needy people, police said.

 

The accused disclosed that he collected phone numbers of the needy people from social media and, along with his associates and started sending messages to them regarding the availability of oxygen cylinders, they said.

 

One of his associates in Bangalore provided the bank accounts to receive the money. After withdrawing the money, their share was deposited in their respective bank accounts. Their other associates in Africa also assisted in this fraud, Indian Telegraph reports.

 

Police found that they were using more than 20 bank accounts for cheating and they have duped more than 1,000 people across India of over Rs 2 crore.

Nigerian Governor’s Aide Arrested In U.S. Over $350,000 Fraud

Published

An aide to Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State is currently enmeshed in over $350,000 (about N140 million) COVID-19 unemployment fraud in the United States.

Abidemi Rufai, who works as Senior Special Assistant to Mr Abiodun, was arrested last Friday, at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York before boarding a flight to Amsterdam.

He is scheduled for a detention hearing Wednesday.

The money wired is said to be unemployment benefits from the Washington State Employment Security Department.

Wire fraud according to the United States Department of Justice is punishable by up to 30 years in prison when it relates to benefits paid in connection with a presidentially-declared disaster or emergency, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

Statement

The Acting U.S. Attorney Tessa M. Gorman said in a statement that his team “worked diligently with a federal law enforcement team to track down the criminals who stole funds designated for pandemic relief since the first fraud reports to their office in April 2020″.

“This is the first, but will not be the last, significant arrest in our ongoing investigation of ESD fraud,” Ms Gorman said.

Mr Rufai reportedly used the stolen identities of more than 100 Washington residents to file fraudulent claims with ESD for pandemic-related unemployment benefits, the statement added.

He is also accused of filing fraudulent unemployment claims with Hawaii, Wyoming, Massachusetts, Montana, New York, and Pennsylvania.

“Rufai used variations of a single e-mail address in a manner intended to evade automatic detection by fraud systems,” Ms Gorman continued.

“By using this practice, Rufai made it appear that each claim was connected with a different email account.

“Rufai caused the fraud proceeds to be paid out to online payment accounts such as ‘Green Dot’ accounts, or wired to bank accounts controlled by ‘money mules’.

“Some of the proceeds were then mailed to the Jamaica, New York address of Rufai’s relative. Law enforcement determined more than $288,000 was deposited into an American bank account controlled by Rufai between March and August 2020.”

Also, the Special Agent in Charge FBI Seattle, Donald Voiret, said “the FBI and our partners will not stand idly by while individuals attempt to defraud programs meant to assist American workers and families suffering the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic.”

PREMIUM TIMES understands the case was investigated by the FBI, with assistance from the Department of Labor Office of Inspector General (DOL-OIG).

“The fraud on ESD is being investigated cooperatively by the FBI, DOL-OIG, Social Security Office of Inspector General, U.S. Secret Service, the United States Postal Inspection Service, and the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigations.

“The Washington Employment Security Department is cooperating in the investigation,” the report on the United States Department of Justice website read.

“The cases are being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Seth Wilkinson, Cindy Chang, and Benjamin Diggs of the Western District of Washington, and Trial Attorney Jane Lee of DOJ’s Cyber Crime and Intellectual Property Section (CCIPS).”

PREMIUM TIMES contacted Mr Rufai’s principal, Governor Abiodun, on the matter but his spokesperson, Kunle Somorin, asked our reporter to call him back.

Hours later, he is yet to respond to calls and text messages.
