Bode George has been described as a man in search of political relevance by the media aide to Bola Tinubu, owing to his recent comments that the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, once apologized to him in public.
In a recent interview with Punch newspapers, the leader of Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State, claimed that at the 2014 burial of Alao Ariseokola in Ibadan, Tinubu apologized to him for allegedly conspiring to throw him in jail.
He was quoted as saying: “They called Bola; he shook my hand and said he was sorry. It was in public. Since then, if we meet in public, we greet. But our concepts of politics are different.”
However, Sunday Dare, the media aide to Tinubu says that the Peoples Democratic Party chieftain has lost all forms of relevance, and is now seeking to make himself heard.
Dare told Vanguard newspapers that: “Bode George takes himself too seriously. He is in search of political relevance, which has since deserted him.”
“George’s claim to seek political rehabilitation through a bogus claim that Tinubu begged him for forgiveness is unexpected of a leader like him. Tinubu bears Bode George no ill feelings.”
“Although Bode George has used every media interview to attack Tinubu, Tinubu has hardly responded. The task of nation building, presently at hand, is more urgent than this distraction.”
