According to our correspondent, the two went into a closed-door meeting immediately after the former Lagos State Governor got to the palace.
The APC leader is yet to speak with journalists about his mission to the palace of the monarch but it is believed that he is soliciting the support of the traditional ruler in his bid to become the president of Nigeria come 2023.
Tinubu was heading to the palace of Olubadan at the time our correspondent filed this report.
Tinubu, who is one of the Presidential aspirants of the party in the 2023 general elections, had in January visited President Muhammadu Buhari to declare his intention to succeed him.
