National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ashiwaju Ahmed TInubu has explained his latest encounter with Chief Olabode George, a PDP chieftain, where the latter claimed Tinubu apologized to him for his ‘sins’ against him.
The former Lagos State governor, though admitted he met Chief George in Ibadan at the burial of Chief Alao Arisekola, however, maintained that he was prevailed upon by the likes of Obe Otudeko and Governor Ajimobi to greet Chief George, which he did saying, saying “Good Afternoon Egbon.”
In a message issued by Tinubu media office and which was made available to the Daily Times, Tinubu said that Chief George lied to claim that he (Tinubu) apologised to him at the event. The statement read, “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 honor, I should greet Mr. George. At their request, I turned back and came to greet him by saying ‘Good Afternoon Egbon.’ That was all.” Tinubu also used the opportunity to wash his hands off the travails of the former Chairman of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA).
