Lagos state slams ‘reckless’ Ize- Iyamu over Ambode comments

Lagos state government has expressed disappointment
in claims by Osagie Ize-Iyamu that Governor Akinwunmi
The state’s information commissioner said Ambode
was presently overseas for an official assignment and in
any case had no business being in Edo State on Election
Edo governor Adams Oshiomhole also denied the
governor of Kaduna state Nasir El-Rufai is present in Edo
state as alleged by Ize-Iyamu
Ize-Iyamu alleged that Ambode and El-Rufai are not in
The Lagos state government has attacked the claims of
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the ongoing
Edo election Osagie Ize-Iyamu that Governor Akinwunmi
Ambode is in the state to rig elections.

Premium Times quoted a statement by the state’s
commissioner for information and strategy, Steve

Ayorinde as saying that Ize-Iyamu’s statement was
‘reckless and disgraceful’.
The statement, he said was also untrue because Ambode
is presently overseas seeing to state business.

“The Lagos State Governor served as the chairman
Campaign Council constituted by the All Progressives

included appearing with President Muhammadu Buhari at
the Grand Rally in Edo State earlier in the month, Governor
Ambode has no reason to return to Edo State on election
day and for this sort of lie to have been peddled by a
candidate who is supposed to be a pastor, is reckless and
disgraceful,” the statement read in part.
Ayorinde noted that Ambode had already done his part
campaigning for the APC and had no reason to be in Edo
state today Wednesday, September 28.

any need for the Governor to return to Edo on Election Day.
The general public and security operatives are hereby
advised to ignore the desperate lies of Pastor Ize-Iyamu,”
Ayorinde said.
Outgoing Edo governor Adams Oshiomhole had also
slammed the lies and described Ize-Iyamu’s statements
as an outright lie.
He denied that either of Kaduna state Governor Nasir El-
Rufai or Ambode was ever in the state on Wednesday.
Earlier today, Ize-Iyamu had raised the alarm that two
APC governors were reportedly in Edo state for the
purpose of rigging the election.
“I want to cry it out to the whole world that I have been
reliably informed that the governor Akinwumi Ambode of
Lagos and Nasir el’Rufai of Kaduna, are in the state,” he
