Jide Sanwo-Olu who recently declared his intention to run for the office of Lagos State governor under APC has reacted to viral reports that he has stepped down for the incumbent governor, Ambode.
According to a statement by Tayo Ayinde, the Director General of Babajide Sanwo-Olu Campaign Organisation (BOSCO), ‘our has been drawn to a false and misleading press statement purportedly attributed to our principal, a frontline APC Gubernatorial Aspirant for Lagos State Governorship Primaries slated for Saturday, 29th of September, 2018’.
He went on to say, ‘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’.
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.
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.
Our Principal remains committed to his campaign while still consulting with party leaders and members and would not be distracted by cheap blackmails like this.
We want to use this opportunity to urge our teeming party faithfuls to troop out enmasse on Saturday, 29th September of 2018 to cast their votes for Babajide Olushola Sanwo-Olu to be the Flagbearer of our great party, All Progressives Congress (APC), in the forthcoming general elections in 2019.
