- Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has paid a condolence visit to ex-national deputy chairman of PDP, Bode George in his Lagos residence
- George lost his 42-year-old son, Dipo on May 9
- Obasanjo whose visit to George was described as historic, urged George to take solace in God over the demise of the late son
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has paid a historic visit to his former ally and former national deputy chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to condole him on the death of his son, Dipo, who died last May 9.
Daily Trust reports that the visit was, however, described as an end to the political rift between the duo.
Legit.ng gathered that George had hitherto attributed his political travails including his incarceration partly to Obasanjo while the duo were seen in the political terrain as sworn enemies.
But Obasanjo who led top aides and loyalists to the Ikoyi residence of the former military administrator of Ondo state, urged him to take solace in God over the demise of the late son, Dipo, who died on May 9.
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 in my mind to come over and commiserate with you and the family. May God grant the depose eternal rest."
But a sister to Bode George, Alhaja Majolagbe, in her vote of thanks declared that the rift between the two was over with the visit.
"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 this two great Nigerians anymore.
"There has come back again, when my brother will find Ota his home. It is over, Allah take all thanks," she said.
