Lagos State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has dismissed reports going viral endorsing his support of a candidate for the state governorship election.
Reports have emerged on Wednesday about Ambode drumming his support for Jide Sanwo-Olu, another candidate.
In a statement signed and made available to The Eagle, by Ambode’s Chief Press Secretary, CPS, Habib Aruna, he said that there is no iota of truth in the news going round and it does not emerge from him or his office.
The statement reads, “My attention has been drawn to a falsehood spreading across social media platforms on the endorsement of a candidate for the Lagos State Governorship position by His Excellency, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode;
“There is no iota of truth in the said statement and it did not emanate from the Governor or his office. We are not oblivion of the desperation of some misguided individuals who are hellbent on fanning the emblem of discord within the Lagos APC.
“The tremendous strides and infrastructural development embarked upon by H.E will be completed by him within the constitutional stipulated time” he said.
