I have reconciled with Tinubu, just like I did with Obasanjo — Bode George

One of the chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olabode George, has revealed that he has reconciled with a National Leader of the All Progressives Congress and former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
It was Tinubu’s government in Lagos State that pursued a case against the former Chairman of the Board of the Nigerian Ports Authority, which led to his being sentenced to jail.
The Supreme Court has since upturned the judgement.
Speaking with Sunday PUNCH, George said he has forgiven Tinubu and has reconciled with him just like he has done with former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
He gave reasons for his decision to reconcile with Obasanjo in the interview.
On Tinubu, he told Sunday PUNCH when asked if he will ever reconcile with him as he did with Obasanjo: “We have reconciled. I’m just saying it for purposes of history. Now, he will learn that that is not the way to pay back. We can disagree without being disagreeable. All of us cannot sleep and face the same direction. You have certain ideas; I have certain ideas. Let the better idea run. It doesn’t mean you are my enemy. The oyinbo (white) man will say you can disagree without being disagreeable. That is the tone behind that. We (Tinubu and I) met at (Alhaji Azeez) Arisekola’s burial. He was with the governor of Oyo State. They said, ‘Egbon, I noticed that you didn’t greet (Tinubu)’. I said, ‘Greet him? What for? Do you know what he did?’ I’m saying this for people to learn from it. It will be in my autobiography because it is a lesson now. It is not fresh; it is already in the past. I have no grudge against Bola. I only thank God that I didn’t get blind, crippled or get any diseases. You know the way the prison bed is; the kind we were using in secondary school in your little cubicle there, confined with no freedom. I thank God almighty that I went through it. I am a trained general. We are trained to survive in any situation. Amos 5:24 says, ‘Let justice flow like a river’. Let it be seen, not to intentionally want to (retaliate). You didn’t create the person; so, why are you doing that? The judgment of God can be vicious.”
