But in a tweet on Friday, Tinubu was quoted to have endorsed Sanwo-Olu and his deputy by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile.
He tweeted: “Asiwaju @officialABAT officially endorsed Governor @jidesanwoolu and deputy @drobafemihamzat for second term.”
Persecondnews reports that Akosile also released a video of Tinubu raising the hands of the governor and his deputy.
