Governor Akinwumi Ambode of Lagos state has distanced himself from the report yhat he has personally dumped his ambition to seek a second term in office saying it is falsehood.
In a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Habib Aruna, he noted that there is no iota of truth in the report adding that the message did not emanate from the Governor.
According to Aruna; “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 from certain quarters that is hell bent on fanning the embers of discord within the Lagos APC.”
He concluded saying; “The tremendous strides and infrastructural development embarked upon by Governor Ambode in almost three and half years will be completed by him within the constitutional stipulated time.
“This is why he has sought the support of party leadership and every Lagosian for re-election in order to complete the good works he has started. He is very much committed to that bid
