Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has denied reports that he had withdrawn from the 2019 governorship race.
Reports emerged on social media yesterday that Ambode had stepped down from the 2019 gubernatorial race and had endorsed Jide Sanwoolu as the governorship candidate for the All Progressives Congress.
But reacting, the Lagos State Governor in a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Habib Aruna said such reports making the rounds were mere propaganda by mischief makers.
“My attention has been drawn to the 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 hell bent on fanning the embers 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.”
