Chief George said this in an interview he granted Sunday Punch on Sunday, June 29, 2018.
He said the reconciliation between him and Tinubu took place in Ibadan during the burial ceremony of Late Alhaji Azeez Alao Arisekola (June 20, 2014).
Hear him, ” We met at Arisekola’s burial. He was with with the governor of Oyo State . They said , Egbon, I noticed that you didn’t greet Tinubu . I said, ‘ Greet him ? What for ? . Do you know what he did ?’ ………I have no grudge against Bola (Tinubu) . I only thank God that I didn’t get blind , crippled or get any diseases. You know the way the prison bed is ; the kind we were using in secondary school in your little cubicle there , confined with no freedom. I thank God almighty that I went through it. I am trained general . We are trained to survive in any situation……. ”
Bode George did not  also forget to mention how he reconciled with Obasanjo in the interview.
He said a lot of were not only surprised but shocked that Obasanjo came to his house to commiserate with  him on the death of his first son , Dipo.
Listen to him , ” That day in my house , he (Obasanjo) was there too; all my family members who suffered the indignation were all there. My political leaders were there and it was a thing of joy that Baba (Obasanjo) came to commiserate with us on the death of my son. Nobody thought that that kind of day would ever come. That is why, in life, whatever you do , remember that the pages of history will be the judge. So, I didn’t have any anger. My conscience had been done. And Baba (Obasanjo) held me . To me, that was vindication. That was justification that in life we make mistakes once in a while”.
Since Chief Bode George came out of prison , he has continuously mentioned Tinubu as one of the people responsible for his incarceration. Although, he did not mention Obasanjo, but rumour mill  had it  then that Obasanjo was actually responsible for his prison ordeal.
