Buhari and Tinubu was to resolve the matter between Ambode and Tinubu said”you know that Asiwaju meets regularly with the President. They discuss party and the nation’s matter regularly. So there is nothing unusual about this meeting. What issue will be resolved when tomorrow(Tuesday) is the primary? There is nothing to resolve”.
