Bode George Opens Up On Tinubu

Chief Bode George, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has open up on the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu…

“Tinubu and I 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.”
