Ikeja, Lagos - Gbenga Omotosho, the commissioner for information in Lagos state, has dismissed the allegation that the state government told the traditional leaders in the state not to receive candidates of the opposition in the state.
The commissioner said this on Channels TV while reacting to the allegation by the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state that traditional rulers have been warned not to receive them during the 2023 election campaigns.
According to Omotosho, the allegation is absurd and uncalled for because it is an attempt to denigrate the tradition and culture of the people, adding that the government led by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu cannot do such a thing.
