Concise News gathered that the meeting may be connected to the Lagos governorship election as Tinubu has backed Babajide Sanwo-Olu to succeed the incumbent, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

It was gathered that Ambode was however not part of the meeting.

“There was a meeting. But I don’t know what the meeting was about,”  Punch quoted a presidency source as saying.

Tinubu had accused Ambode of deviating from the development blueprint prepared for the state.

Confirming the meeting between Buhari and Tinubu, another source in the camp of the former Lagos State governor said nothing has changed.

He said: “You know that Asiwaju meets regularly with the President. They discuss party and the nation’s matters regularly. So there is nothing unusual about this meeting.”

When asked if Buhari had succeeded in resolving the matter, he replied, “What issue will be resolved when tomorrow (Tuesday) is primary?

“There is nothing to resolve. The people will elect their candidate at the primary on Tuesday.

“Asiwaju is back in Lagos from Abuja. Everybody is preparing for the primary.”
