Former president, Olusegun Onabanjo, on Saturday visited the Ikoyi, Lagos home of the former national deputy chairman, Southwest of the Peoples Democratic Party, Bode George, to commiserate with him over the death of his son.
The younger George reportedly died on the 9th May, 2018.
The visit was however described as an end to the political rift between the duo by George’s family.
In a statement signed on his behalf by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo led some top aides and loyalists to the residence of the former military administrator of Ondo State, where he urged him to take solace in God over the demise of the son.
He said, “We cannot query God, but to only take solace in what He has done to you.
“If this did not happen, who knows what next that will happen. I have not been around but it was on my mind to come over and commiserate with you and the family. May God grant the deceased eternal rest.”
However, the visit turned emotional when Bode George’s sister, Alhaja Majolagbe in her vote of thanks declared that the rift between the two was over with the visit.
She said, “We are all shocked when this started. But, today, devil has been put to shame. The evil this morning has been condemned outside this house. It will never come to these two great Nigerians anymore.
“There has come time again when my brother will find Ota his home. It is over, Allah take all thanks.”
