The Lagos State governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN) has dissociated himself from a purported presidential advertisement, drumming support for his aspiration come 2015
In a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media, Hakeem Bello, the governor said the publicity was unsolicited and unwanted.
He described the sponsors of the advertisement as detractors of his administration.
The statement read:”The attention of the Lagos State Government has been drawn to a paid advertisement said to have been placed by unknown persons purportedly urging support for the Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN) for the 2015 presidential elections.
“This is to disclaim and dissociate the Governor and the State Government from this unsolicited and unwarranted venture.
This is against the backdrop of the fact that Governor Babatunde Fashola (SAN) is focused on sustaining the high tempo of development engendering governance right till the end of his second tenure in office and therefore cannot yield to distractions by any individual or group of mischief makers.
“Members of the public are hereby implored to ignore the said advert and also be wary of the antics of people with such dubious intentions. Please be vigilant.”
