The Lagos state Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, through his cheif Press Secretary has debunked the statement credited to him which is presently trending on the social media, stating that the governor has withdrawn from the Lagos governorship race.
Below is the statement unedited:
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 oblivious 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.
