Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George has advised Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose to forgive former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
He said this in an interview with journalists on Friday.
This was in response to a recent interview where Fayose attacked the former President again.
The governor claimed that Obasanjo used him to destroy the Presidential ambition of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar and Ahmed Makarfi.
According to George, Fayose’s return to office after he was impeached shows God has fought for him.
He added that he was aware that his imprisonment for financial impropriety was “nothing but political persecution” and that was why he was later exonerated by the Supreme Court.
George said, “My advice to my younger brother in Ekiti State is that it is time for him to forgive and forget and let sleeping dogs lie. He was impeached but God reinstated him as governor after eight years. What more can a man ask for?
“He should forgive and forget. We should not wash our dirty linen in public.
“I have always said that my imprisonment was nothing but persecution and I have been vindicated by the highest court in the land. I never wanted to become BoT Chairman so I doubt if that was the reason why I was treated that way. The BoT chairman is chosen from among the elders within the party and not by other organs.”
