Yesterday, there were reports that billionaire, Femi Otedola will be running for governor of lagos state come 2019.
One of his fake Twitter accounts even shared a statement ‘confirming’ the oil magnate was running for office, making lots of people believe the reports which he has now stated is untrue.
Below is a statement from the business man himself denying it. It was posted on his real Twitter page.
“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.
Fake accounts in my name have to have the word “parody” in their bio/profile to exist. @verified has recently paused verifications so, until I get the blue tick, please always ensure to read the bio/profile section of accounts that appear to be mine.”
