Lagos Deputy Governor, Femi Hamzat has condemned reports that his son partook of the rally of supporters of Peter Obi.
Hamzat warned the supporters to quit cheap tactics that would not yield political gains.
He gave the warning in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Tunde Alao.
During the rally in Lagos on Saturday, a picture went viral after the Labour Party (LP) candidate’s followers labelled it Hamzat’s son.
“Lagos State Deputy Governor’s son Femi Hamzat, joins the obidient rally in support of Peter Obi”, the caption read.
The rejoinder explained that the individual in the photograph is neither the deputy governor’s son nor his relative.
It called the claim another mischievous, false and malicious attempt to cause friction between the deputy governor and loyalists across Nigeria.
It noted that Hamzat has a reputation of commitment and loyalty to the Sanwo-Olu led administration and the All Progressives Congres (APC).
“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 and ours is not about bogus statistics and lies,” he said.
He advised Obi’s supporters to get serious with their campaigns and urged Nigerians to be on the look out for actions meant to deceive them
