The Lagos State Government has reacted to claims that Sanwo-Olu withdrew $470 million to fund AFCON’s delegation.
The Lagos State Government has denied withdrawing 470 million dollars for delegations of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations holding in Egypt.
The Peoples Democratic Party had accused the governor of planning to fund the trip of the delegation to watch the Nigeria-Cameroon game which the nation won last Saturday.
Reacting to the allegation, Gboyega Akosile, the Deputy Chief Press Secretary debunked the allegations, saying it was a figment of the mischief makers’ imagination.
“There is nothing farther to the truth than this statement, which follows the same pattern of falsehoods usually dished out to the public by the PDP and its mouthpiece.
“For the avoidance of doubt, His Excellency, Sanwo-Olu did not make any withdrawal for the purpose of attending the AFCON in Egypt.
“It is a public knowledge that Sanwo-Olu was named among some other dignitaries to attend the ongoing African football fiesta in Egypt.
“As we have always stated, we will again suggest to the Lagos State PDP and her spokesman to always fact check before putting pen on paper. Opposition politics is not built on lies and fake news,” Akosile stated.
