Lagos Rubbishes Claims Of Deputy Gov’s Son Attending Obi Rally

The Office of the Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Obafemi Hamzat, has denied claims that their principal’s son graced the rally held for the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, in the state on Saturday.

The office was forced to react after an online picture of an individual, captioned, ‘The Lagos State Deputy Governor’s son joins the Obidient rally in support of Peter Obi,’ went viral on the social media.

Reacting, the office of the deputy governor said, “For the avoidance of doubt, the gentleman in the displayed photograph is neither Obafemi Hamzat son nor his relative.

“The viral message is another mischievous, false and malicious attempt to cause friction between @drobafemihamzat and his admirers and loyalists across the Nation.

“Obafemi Hamzat has a reputation of commitment and loyalty to Babajide Sanwo-Olu led administration and the All Progressives Congress. His support is for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Senator Kashim Shettima. Our party and all our supporters are working hard to ensure that our candidates get the votes of Nigerians. Ours is not about bogus statistics and lies.

“Any attempt to denigrate his character by spewing falsehood about his family will remain a vain and futile attempt until eternity.

“Supporters of the Labour Party should get serious with their campaigns and desist from cheap tactics that would not yield any political gains.”
