Mr. Babajide Olushola Sanwo-Olu, a governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State on Monday discredited the rumour that he had withdrawn from contesting the governorship race in the state.
Speaking through the Director, Media and Publicity, Babajide Olushola Sanwo-Olu Campaign Organisation (BOSCO), Comrade Sesan Daini described as misleading the rumour making the round that the governorship aspirant will not participate in the primary election scheduled for Saturday, 29th of September, 2018.
He said, “For the umpteenth time, Mr. Babajide Olushola Sanwo-Olu has not and will not withdraw from this race and he is ready for the party primaries slated for Saturday, 29th of September, 2018.”
Daini said BOSCO’s attention has been drawn to a false and misleading press statement purportedly attributed to the aspirant about his intention to withdraw from the race.
“We hereby state unequivocally that the purported press statement did not emanate from our Principal, Babajide Olushola Sanwo-Olu, rather it is the handiwork of jittery members of the opposition to malign our Principal and mislead members of the public.
“BOSCO is not oblivious of the fact that these cheap attempts to mislead and hoodwink members of our party and the general public will be made by these disgruntled elements but we will continue to repeal their falsehood with facts.”
