PDP’s governorship candidate in Lagos. Mr Jimi Agbaje, for some time hasn’t been best friends with a former Deputy National Chairman of the party, Chief Olabode George.

George admitted recently that they had differences in the past on certain political issues, but that they had since risen above that and made up.

He said he had since forgotten whatever happened between the two of them as an elder in the party and in the interest of PDP.

This is not unexpected since the future of the PDP in Lagos rests on the success the likes of George help Agbaje achieve at the forthcoming governorship election.

Speaking at a colloquium titled: “2019: South West speaks” in Lagos, George said the belief in some quarters that he and Agbaje were not in good terms was untrue.

The former PDP Deputy Chairman said Agbaje and his running mate, Mrs Haleemat Busari, had visited him in his residence where he particularly advised Busari on how to navigate the murky waters of politics successfully.

“There is no rift between Agbaje and me. All that happened in the past is gone. The Yorubas say if you continue to nurse grudges with people, you will not have anybody to call your friend. The issues of the past belong to the past, there is no rift between us,” he said.

George, while delivering a keynote address at the colloquium, stressed the need for Nigerians to work together in the interest of the country.

He said that no nation attained greatness when people saw differences and identified themselves more with tribes than with the nation.

George said there was the need for Nigerians to shun politics of hatred and sectarian malice that would impede unity and peaceful co-existence.
