The Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Femi Hamzat, has debunked reports of his first son showing support for the presidential candidate of the Labour party, Peter Obi and joining the rally in the state.
Hamzat has also warned supporters of Peter Obi to stop cheap tactics that would not yield political gains.
He gave the warning in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Tunde Alao.
During the rally in Lagos on Saturday, a picture went viral after the Labour Party (LP) candidate’s followers labelled it Hamzat’s son.
The rejoinder explained that the individual in the photograph is neither the deputy governor’s son nor his relative.
It called the claim another mischievous, false and malicious attempt to cause friction between the deputy governor and loyalists across Nigeria.
The statement noted that Hamzat is committed and loyal to his boss, Sanwo-Olu-led administration and the All Progressives Congres (APC).
“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 and ours is not about bogus statistics and lies,” he said.
