I Never Apologised To Bode George – Tinubu

When I sometimes tell you that politics is more interesting than gossip, you won’t believe me, lol. Just when Mr Sunday Dare, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s media aide replied PDP Chieftain Bode George this morning saying, Bode George should not be taken seriously for saying Tinubu apologised to him openly, because he is only seeking political relevance which has since left him.

Well, Asiwaju himself has deemed it fit, to clear the air now. In a statement released by his media aide today, Asiwaju said he never apologised to Bode George like he claimed, but simply greeted him because some people asked him too. Hear him;

“Mr. George claims the alleged apology was made at the burial of Chief Alao Arisekola. On that date, personalities such as Oba Otudeko and Governor Ajimobi approached me because I did not greet Mr. George initially. They pleaded that, in the memory of the man we were all gathered to honour, I should greet Mr. George. At their request, I turned back and came to greet him by saying, ‘Good afternoon Egbon (senior)’. That was all.”

Tinubu also said he could not have been involved in the imprisonment of Mr George like he claimed, because it was the Federal Government that instituted the case against George, a former Military Administrator of the old Ondo State.
