DEPUTY Governor of Lagos State, Dr Kadri Obafemi Hamzat, has debunked report that his son Femi campaigned for Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

Hamzat described said an online picture captioned “The Lagos State Deputy Governor’s son Femi Hamzat, joins the obidient rally in support of Peter Obi” is false.

A statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor (Media), Office of the Lagos State Deputy Governor, Tunde Alao, read: “For the avoidance of doubt, the gentleman in the displayed photograph is neither the Deputy Governor’s son nor his relative.

“The viral message is another mischievous, false and malicious attempt to cause friction between the Deputy Governor and his admirers and loyalists across the nation.

“Dr. Hamzat has a reputation of commitment and loyalty to the Sanwo-Olu led administration and the All Progressives Congress. 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. Ours is not about bogus statistics and lies.

“Any attempt to denigrate his character by spewing falsehood about his family will remain a vain and futile attempt until eternity.

“Supporters of the Labour Party should get serious with their campaigns and desist from cheap tactics that would not yield any political gains.

“We hope that Nigerians will detect these tendencies to deceive and see it for what it is. It is too late in the day to keep lying to Nigerians. It won’t work,” the statement also read.
