The president arrived in Lagos for the Christmas celebration last week.

Obaseki last visited Tinubu in the months leading to the 2020 governorship election in Edo State.

There were insinuations that the governor fell out with President Tinubu over the latter’s closeness to the former All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.

Obaseki and Oshiomhole fell out after the 2019 general election.
