In the Sarurday visit, Obasanjo urged George to take solace in God over the death of his late son. He said
“We cannot query God, but to only take solace in what He has done to you. If this do not happened, who knows what next that will happen. I have not been around but it was in my mind to come over and commiserate with you and the family. May God grant the depose eternal rest.”
Reacting to the news, former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani Kayode says, the reunion is a good thing for Yorubaland. See what he shared via Twitter;
God is doing a new and wonderful thing in Yorubaland. Baba OBJ, Baba Adebanjo, Pastor Tunde Bakare and so many others all coming together and rebuilding bridges is great news. OBJ's visit to Baba Bode George is also good news. When we stand together no-one can stop us.
