No one wants to have their names soiled with corrupt charges not even former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olabode George who has three to his name so far. Bode George, who was jailed for 30months as a result of abuse of office and alleged illegal award of contracts worth N84 billion while he was chairman of the NPA has yet again been named as one of the beneficiaries of N600m disbursed by former Minister of Finance (State), Bashir Yuguda, a claim he wrote off as “mischievous and deliberately fraudulent”. In light of this, INFORMATION NIGERIA is taking a look back at the other times when Chief Bode George has been involved in a financial scandal. The funny thing however is that he’s been involved three times and in all the three times he described the allegations as false and baseless but he eventually went to prison for one…

– In April 2005, Bode George threatened court action over a newspaper allegation that an N85 billion scam was uncovered in the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) while he was chairman of the NPA board. He described the allegation as senseless, baseless and thoughtless but eventually went to jail for 30months, after he was tried and found guilty.

– In October 2015, Bode George was named  in a N4.947 billion SURE -P scam, an allegation he described as cruel, callous and outlandish mischief making.

– Former Minister of State, Bashir Yuguda, recently told the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) that Bode George, was one of beneficiaries of the N600million cash to six chairmen of the Contact and Mobilisation Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2015 general election. An allegation Chief George as since debunked as ‘another blatant falsehood, stripped of any iota of truth’.

All the allegations have something in common, they are all about his involvement with public funds and his quick reaction to writing them off as false and baseless.
