A picture claiming that the son of Femi Hamzat, the deputy governor of Lagos state, participated in the Lagos rally organised by supporters of Peter Obi has surfaced online. 

On Saturday, October 1, supporters of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), held rallies in several parts of the country including Akwa Ibom, Gombe, Bauchi, Edo, among others.

The supporters of LP held the rally as part of activities to mark Nigeria’s 62nd independence anniversary.

Nigeria gained independence on October 1, 1960.

Several posts of a particular man who participated in the Lagos rally have surfaced on social media. Most of the posts claimed that he is the first son of the deputy governor of Lagos.

Tunde Alao, the media aide to the deputy governor of Lagos, has debunked the claim in a statement released on Sunday

“For the avoidance of doubt, the gentleman in the displayed photograph is neither the Deputy Governor’s son nor his relative,” he said.

“The viral message is another mischievous, false and malicious attempt to cause friction between the Deputy Governor and his admirers and loyalists across the Nation.

“Dr. Hamzat has a reputation of commitment and loyalty to the Sanwo-Olu administration and the All Progressives Congress.”
