- Social media report that Sanwo-Olu's convoy was booed has been dismissed
- The governor's CPS Gboyega Akosile dismissed the report which was accompanied by a video
- Akosile advised the public to stay away from spreading falsehoods
Governor Sanwo-Olu was not booed leaving the premises of the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, his chief press secretary, Gboyega Akosile, disclosed on Twitter.
Akosile said the video is false because the governor was not the person in the convoy.
The video which was shared by a Twitter user, @absuxxess, showed several cars leaving the premises of the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere.
As the cars were leaving the premises, some youths at the gate booed the occupants with a chant of “Ole” which is the Yoruba word for thief and also threw empty plastic bottles at the cars.
Reacting to the video, Sanwo-Olu’s aide said:
“This is wrong, totally false. This is not Governor @jidesanwoolu’s convoy. Let’s stay away from spreading falsehoods. I’d implore you to correct your wrongful publication."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that taxpayers in Lagos have until March 31, 2021, to pay their outstanding tax to the state government as Governor Sanwo-Olu plans to meet its monthly tax revenue target of N60.318 billion.
Seyi Alade, the director of legal services for the Lagos state internal revenue service, said taxable persons shouldn't wait until a notice is sent or demand is made.
He said self-employed and salary earners should meet the deadline as failure to file tax returns will attract punishment.
In another report, some teachers in Lagos state have smiled home after they became car owners, courtesy of Governor Sanwo-Olu.
The governor presented cars, among other gifts to outstanding teachers and school administrators in the state.
The governor did this in fulfilment of his promise to reward excellence and hard work in the teaching profession.
According to him, the initiative is in line with the government’s commitment to using education as a weapon to change the world.
