Billionaire Femi Otedola debunks reports of him running for office next year
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.”
