Lagos HoS debunks plans to unseat Sanwo-Olu
Hakeem Muri-Okunola, the Head of Service of Lagos State, has debunked rumours he nurses a governorship ambition in 2023.
Okunola stated this in a statement he issued on Sunday.
He describes as “fictitious” publications linking him to the plot to “stop Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s second term bid.”
“I hereby dissociate myself from all publications and innuendoes conveying such plots.
“I reiterate my support for Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and and his administration’s THEMES Agenda – the six-pillar development plan that is the compass for his projects and policies.
“The objective of those behind these publications is obviously to plant a seed of discord between Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and me,” he said.
Okunola said those behind the rumours are “trying to play the religion card”.
He said, “I am fully focused on carrying out my duties as Head of Service of the Lagos State Government and taking the Public Service to greater heights.”
