A front line governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has denied withdrawing from the APC Lagos governorship primaries scheduled to take place this Saturday.
In a press statement released by the Babajide Olushola Sanwo-Olu Campaign Organisation (BOSCO), and signed by its Director, Media and Publicity, Mr. Sesan Daini, the group described the purported withdrawal as false and misleading, emphasizing that their principal will not withdraw from the race.
It accused ‘jittery opposition’ as the harbinger of the report.
Read the full statement below:
The attention of the Babajide Olushola Sanwo-Olu Campaign Organisation (BOSCO) 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.
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.
