“Vice President Yemi Osinbajo stopped by for a friendly visit at the Abuja residence of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu just now,” he said in his first post.

This was followed by another. “At the meeting, VP and Asiwaju exchanged pleasantries in the spirit of the season. And in response to media inquiries whether this was a political meeting, it was not,” he added.

Shortly after the visit, some media platforms speculated that Osinbajo pledged loyalty to Tinubu without stating what was specifically said at the meeting.

According to a source close to the meeting, both men discussed a number of domestic issues. “They discussed many issues, in fact, they had a closed-door meeting, just the two of them and at that point we do not even know what was discussed.

Chronicle NG reports that Osinbajo served as attorney general and commissioner of justice in Lagos state when Tinubu was the two-term governor of the state.
