- Says the video is being investigated.
- He calls for patience on road construction till after the raining season.
GFboyega Akosile, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Babajide Sanwolu has reacted to a trending video showing a convey allegedly belonging to his boss driving against traffic.
The convoy was sighted along Herbert Macauley Way taking one way, which is against the traffic rule.
Reacting to the video, Akosile said his principal has never drive against the traffic and does not use siren as seen and heard in the video.
The video had generated a lot of reactions from social media users, lambasting the governor for not setting a good example.
Responsible to a post of a Twitter user, Akosile wrote: “kindly be informed that your video is totally false, malicious, misleading and a deliberate attempt to embarrass the person of Gov @jidesanwoolu.
“The convoy is not that of the Governor, who has never & will never drive against the traffic. Pls do the needful by deleting the post.”
Reacting to lack of road rehabilitation by the governor, the CPS calls for patience. He added that Sanwo-Olu will do more roads after the rain.
“Gov @jidesanwoolu is working round the clock to ensure that Lagos works. He has achieved a cleaner environment, improved security, health, bursary, etc. He will embark on aggressive road constructions/repairs but this can only be done effectively after the rains. Pls bear with us.”
He, therefore, urged social media users to investigate before making a conclusion on such case
This is not Governor Sanwo-Olu’s convoy. In fact we’re investigating these vehicles. Please note that Governor Sanwo-Olu’s convoy has never driven against traffic, nor used sirens. It will be good that we confirm claims on social media before making remarks. Thank you. https://t.co/se0zgbsz2C
