A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olabode George, has told a national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, that everything that has a beginning has an end.
Bode George was reacting to a statement made by the APC leader, where he warned Nigerians not to listen to the apology made by the PDP.
Dismissing the remark by Tinubu as a rubbish statement, the PDP chieftain said Tinubu should stop parading himself as God, adding that he should remember that one day he shall die as all humans.

Speaking with Independent, George said Tinubu can control everything but cannot control the day he was born, the tribe in which he was born and the day he will exit the earth.
He said, “First of all, let me ask Tinubu, is he God? Or has he gotten the powers of God that he can see the future?
“I think that is a rubbish statement to make from a leader. If that is what he thinks, I think it is a wishful thinking.
“He will soon realise that everything that has a beginning has an end, and that is the power of the Almighty, the One who was, who is and will forever be. There is no human being that lives perpetually.
“There are three things in life you don’t control -the day you were born, the tribe in which you were born(whether you are Chinese, African or American) and the day you will exit.
“That shows you there is a Being and power more than us. So, when people get up and make such statements that Tinubu made, that PDP will never come back to power, that is arrogance being exhibited.
“Let me advise him that we used to say that PDP will rule this country for 60 years. Then we sat back, put everything on auto-pilot and went to sleep.
“Alas, we found ourselves on the deck and that was why in humility, during the last conference held by the party in Abuja, the delivery, the content and performance was the zenith of humility.”
