Femi Otedola denies plans to unseat Ambode
Nigeria billionaire Femi Otedola has denied rumours that he is planning to contest for the seat of the governor of Lagos state in the forthcoming 2019 general elections.
Otedola was reacting to some reports circulating online that he was gearing up to contest for the number one seat in the state.
Writing on his official twitter page on the matter, the billionaire said; “My attention has been drawn to a news piece where false information from a parody account was posted.
“I am a man of the people and I will always be on the side of the masses but I am stating clearly via this medium that I am not running for office.
“The Governor of Lagos State is doing a commendable job and Lagosians should be proud of him.”
