It was gathered that her efforts did not yield any result as Tinubu was said to have “received her cordially and joked with her.”
“At a point, she became emotional despite the fact that many party leaders were there. But Asiwaju (Tinubu) did not give her the answer she desired. He merely treated her with courtesy,” one of the sources said.
