A particular news circulated around social media where it was purported that Femi Otedola declared his intention to run for governor of Lagos state come 2019.
A statement that made the rounds on the internet reads,
As a lot of you might already know, it is my intention to follow in my father’s footsteps and lead my people into making Lagos State a true powerhouse in Africa’s economy. Not just a megacity but an efficient and productive city where everyone is rewarded for their hard work, After much consolation with my political mentors, and much discussion with those close to me, I want to formally share this good news with the good people of Lagos, my interest in the governorship ticket of Lagos State at the 2019 gubernatorial elections. In due time I will also announce under which “umbrella” I will be running. Thank you.” Ote$
