I Am Not A Crook, I ‘m Not A Criminal – Bode George Insist

Erstwhile Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olabode George, yesterday, declared that he was neither a crook nor a criminal, saying even the judge who sent him to jail confessed he did not steal a kobo.

Noting that he was a victim of a conspiracy to put him out of circulation, George, at his 66th birthday thanksgiving in Lagos, said in the midst of his incarceration, he found a higher calling in God’s service in facilitating the release of many indigent persons wrongly imprisoned.

George, who spoke at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Kirikiri, Lagos, while admitting that he was susceptible to err like all human beings, however, affirmed: “But I am not a crook. I am not a criminal. I will never take what belongs to others.

“My incarceration at Kirikiri was not provoked by some personal wrongs or misdemanour. We were accused of contract splitting and an alleged disobedience of an administrative procedure. I was never at anytime in possession of an executive power to initiate a contract or grant personal approval. I worked as a part-time Chairman who sat at quarterly meetings and who had just one vote.

“I didn’t know any contractor. I never sponsored any memo. What’s more, the Executive Director (Engineering) who presented the memo of the alleged contract splitting was never arraigned nor queried.”

Continuing at the service attended by some of his associates including PDP 2011 gubernatorial candidate, Ade Dosunmu, George said:

“But through all the convoluted conspiracy and byzantine plot to get me out of circulation, I was never accused of personal benefits or financial gains from the alleged contract splitting. The presiding judge Olubunmi Oyewole was honest enough to say that we did not take one kobo from the coffers of Nigerian Ports Authority. For this, I give praise and thanks to God Almighty.”

Giving his experience in prison, he said:

“My imprisonment invariably became a liberation mission wherein the good Lord used me to intervene on behalf of other inmates who had been wrongly shackled sometimes for several years without trial.”

“Through the Blessings of the Good Lord, my intervention helped rescue many young men from untimely executions. God used me to help others to further their education while in unjust imprisonment,” George deposed.

Noting his personal and spiritual reformation, he deposed:

“My imprisonment which was clearly borne out of sheer malice and a malignant conspiracy from various interests was a good spiritual desert mandated by the Heavens. I am indeed a better man for having gone through the bitter experience of imprisonment. For here I have learnt the virtues of spiritual awakening and moral retooling of oneself,” he further deposed.

It's funny you guys always judge an entire nation for the sin of one man. I thought it was human to err until I came on Nairaland. Here it's Yoruba or Igbo or Ijaw or Hausa or Itshekiri to err. We associate the worst sins with every other group,tribe or nation while ours is always squeaky clean. Some of us have been fed with so much hate until we started to believe that we're of a superior tribe or race. Wake up people. Stealing, looting, lying, cussing, cursing, pre-marital and extra-marital sexual affairs are wrong. They won't become okay if I or someone from my 'area' do them. They are wrong no matter who does them and I'm yet to find a religion or ethnic nationality (at least in Nigeria) that encourages people to be corrupt and loot the national treasury . Please let's grow up. While other nations are competing on a global stage, Nigerian youths cannot afford to spend and waste their energy pulling themselves down in the name of tribal supremacy. Thanks.

And to Chief Bode, Ìwo wí.

P.S. This is my first comment on Nairaland though I've viewed posts for years. There are many who don't comment on issues raised here because of Nairaland tribal wars.

My brother, abeg help me tell them OOO !!! Bigotry (ethnic and religious) is clearly the 'opium' our leaders are using to divide and conquer the rest of Nigerians so they may keep on looting undisturbed. If we dislike each other and can never unite, how will we stop the cake-sharing going on in Abuja involving politicians from all corners of Nigeria? All our leaders are predisposed to stealing and joining politics is about the acquisition of stupendous wealth for majority of them. This is why I always say the "beautiful ones are not yet born" and we must manage what we have for now rather than pretend as if others are the problem of Nigeria. Holier-than-thou pontification is simply self-delusion and a waste of time.

It really is shameful and sad. Can you, for example, ask this character to join the effort to carry out the Egypt-style revolution so that we too may gain a National transition council consisting of the likes of Achebe, Col. Umar and Wole Soyinka? No. That is because this person will tell you that the "Yooroba" and "almajiris" are the problems of Nigeria and not his own leaders !! Never mind that where he lives , controlled by "his leaders", is nothing to write home about !!!! I am personally convinced that suffering will be the lot of most Nigerians for a while to come because the average Nigerian is still too mentally brainwashed (ethnically and religiously) to ever see what really matter.

Re: I Am Not A Crook, I ‘m Not A Criminal – Bode George by EgbonOlu: 3:25pm On Dec 05, 2011
At times, I wonder if some people do think before saying something, Bode George was convincted, no Yoruba stood against his conviction. He came out of prison and celebrated his freedom, Yorubas condemned his shameless celebration. Now, some idiots are spewing rubbish just because they see people making comment and they want people to notice them on this tread, Clifford Oji is not a yoruba. The killing at Okija wasn't by yoruba. Rebellion against Nigeria has never happened in Yorubaland. Nigeria being blacklisted due to December 25th attempeted bomb in the U.S was not by a yoruba. The Yorubas are busy struggling to allow peace reign in Nigeria but some animals are busy raising racial tension, !  !!  !!!
