The political associates of President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Saturday night, held a meeting with Olabode George, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader in Lagos State.

This was disclosed by a source close to the PDP leader. The source said that the meeting with George who is a known critic of Tinubu, came as a surprise to the political family of the PDP leader.

It was gathered that the delegation was led by Tajudeen Olusi, the chairman of the Governor Advisory Council (GAC), the highest decision- making body of the ruling party in Lagos, founded by Tinubu.
