Lagos State All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship aspirant Mr Babjide Sanwo-Olu claims Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s statement as untrue and shameless.
In a statement made by the Governor of Lagos state, Governor Ambode while briefing the press said his co-contestant was not fit and proper for the position of Lagos Governor and he was arrested for spending fake dollars in a nightclub at the United state.
Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has come out to say that his statement is all false, that this is just a tool which the governor plans to use against him in the coming primary.
“However, I must clear up some inaccuracies in the governor’s statement. His allegation of that I was arrested for spending fake dollars at a nightclub in the United States was untrue. In fact, the governor knows I travelled to the United States just last month. I would not have been allowed to travel or even get a visa if I had been involved in what the Governor falsely alleged.
“That the governor claimed I underwent some unidentified type of “rehabilitation” at the Gbagada General Hospital was also shameless and untrue.
The Governorship aspirant has said that he is more concern about the welfare of Lagosians, that was the reason why he is pursuing the position, he said,
“Let it be heard by all that I hold the people of Lagos State with great respect and affection. Their welfare is my utmost concern and it is what drives my pursuit for the governorship nomination of the APC. As such, I also hold the office of governor of our state in high esteem. I shall never consciously do anything that will undermine the dignity of the office nor will I engage in personal attacks against the holder of that officer.
“My pursuit of office will continue to be based upon issues that matter to Lagosians and not on attacks against someone’s character, even when he attacks mine. For anyone to engage in unwarranted character attacks against me, reveals more about that person’s character than it says about mine.
He promises hopefully that his approach would be to provide a solution to problems instead of throwing out insults.
“As a candidate for the party’s nomination and hopefully as your next governor, my approach will not be to sling insults, but to propose solutions to the problems of the day.”
