Bode George Warns Politicians Against Dangers with 4G Principle

Former Deputy National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) South- West, Chief Olabode George has advised politicians in the zone to tread cautiously by refraining from running afoul of the law during the electioneering period.
He specifically advised members of the opposition group in Nigeria not to do anything to contravene the law, most especially during the governorship election scheduled to hold on Saturday in Osun State.
He canvassed against desperate inclinations by the opposition towards the election in Osun, while calling that attention of the electorate to what he described as principle of 4Gs, which are in place in Nigeria, at the moment.
According to him, “the four Gs include God, who is all-capable, the Government and its full powers, Goodluck Jonathan, the President of Nigeria with full Presidential powers and the influence of Gun”.
Bode George said any Nigerian who appreciates the truism of the 4 Gs would always remember to be well behaved at critical times.
According to him, Nigeria at the moment has been passing through its most difficult phase in history with escalating problems of insecurity, youth restiveness, gangsterism, political thuggery, child trafficking, prostitution, general despondence and others, all he considered a huge burden on the government.
He said Nigerians should rather appreciate that the government needs more concentration in addressing the mounting socio-economic and political problems confronting the country rather than adding to the government’s problem through certain omissions.
He said, “we are in a very delicate era in Nigeria as at today. The government of the day has sufficient problems to cope with than getting it attention distracted with unruly conducts from political players. In this period of electioneering, I advise that we politicians should be more cautious not to increase the burden of the government by what we do and by our attitude to politics. There is no need for any one to get desperate for power because, all powers belong to God.
I am experienced enough to know that in Nigeria today, there is the principle of 4 Gs, the first of which is God, the Government, Goodluck and Gun. The 4 Gs are powerful and lethal and could easily subdue any recalcitrant mortal. So why must we be desperate in quest for anything including power”.
While speaking on the coming governorship election in Osun State, Chief Olabode George said the electorate in the state should not misunderstand President Jonathan on his promise to deploy more security to Osun State for the election.
He said President Jonathan was merely reacting on a deluge of security reports on plans by hoodlums to cause mayhem during the governorship election in Osun, hence his emphasis on deployment of Police to be on guard before and during the election.
According to him, the South West had never been known for violent acts during elections and hence should not use the coming governorship election in Osun state to start an unpleasant precedence by engaging in criminal acts during elections.
He said similar security reports about planned violence activities were filed before President Jonathan on the recently held Ekiti election, a development, he said prompted the security department to mobilise to Ekiti for the election.
He added, “With all hullabaloo on Ekiti, the governorship election went peacefully, while the electorate complied by being law abiding while the election registered as the most peaceful and best conducted in history of Nigeria.
