The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has said he is “healthy and of sound mind”.
A statement by the Director, Media and Communications, Akinwunmi Ambode Campaign Organisation, Steve Ayorinde, said: “It has come to the attention of the Akinwunmi Ambode Campaign Organisation the wicked, baseless and cowardly lies being circulated about our candidate.
“The jittery opposition will stop at nothing in its smear campaign having failed to contain the soaring popularity of the APC candidate. But we are neither bothered nor discouraged; and we know that our numerous supporters can see through the lies and desperations.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Mr. Ambode neither suffers from any ailment nor has he ever met or been treated by a certain Dr. Lanre Adeoye. This fictional tale should be disregarded in its entirety.
“With a clear focus, sound mind and in good health, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode shall be unwavering in his campaigns and strategic consultations to retain Lagos State for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Fashola is working, Lagos is moving and Ambode is ready. No weapon of the opposition can stand against this obvious choice of the people.”
