According to him, Rasheed Ladoja, a former governor of Oyo state, told him that Tinubu requested to see him in Lagos.
Igboho said when he met with Tinubu in Lagos, the former Lagos state governor persuaded him not to support the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the election because the party was responsible for Ladoja's impeachment.
