Edun was a Commissioner for Finance in Lagos State when Tinubu was governor of the state.
Sources say Obasanjo has called Tinubu and advised him to desist from pushing Edun as the Ogun State nominee.
He was said to have warned that Ogun people would not allow Tinubu to fill the slot of the state with somebody whose work and career were rooted in Lagos State.
Obasanjo and Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State have agreed to give the state’s slot in the cabinet to a former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Auditor, Bode Mustapha.
