Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, has hailed the emergence, yesterday, of Senator Bukola Saraki as Senate President.

George, who spoke in London, said Saraki’s victory is an indication that former Governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, “is five minutes to his political sunset.”

To the PDP chieftain, Saraki’s election, as well as that of Hon. Yakubu Dogara as Speaker of the House of Representatives, “has proved that national politics is better than zonal politics.”

“Since 1999, the PDP is known for playing national politics and we will continue to do just that, whether we are in the opposition or not,” George said.

Continuing, he said: “APC is a congregation of strange bed fellows and Tinubu erroneously still thinks that his party will continue to play the type of politics of imposition he is playing in Lagos.

“As the ruling party at the national level, the game has changed. Tinubu is yet to wake up from his politics of imposition. He should quickly realise now that it is five minutes to his political sunset.

“What happened in Abuja today is a welcome development for national and rational politics. Tinubu and his fellow dreamers have zoned themselves to total irrelevance. This is a sign of more things to come.”
