Popular Lagos socialite and notable real estate investor, Yemi Idowu, has refuted media reports that he was given contract by the state government to supply buses to administration of Akinwunmi Ambode.
In a statement issued by his media aide, Tayo Adesokan, the entrepreneur described the report as totally untrue.
Idowu said for the avoidance of doubt, he is not beneficiary of a Lagos State contract to supply buses.
“We would like to use this medium to deny this news article including the information it has presented as untrue and unsubstantiated.
“Mr Idowu is in no way involved in the Lagos State bus reform and he has not been invited to participate in the reform.
“It is unfortunate that many media sources have drawn resources from this unfounded allegation by which the public is being fed unverified information. A simple confirmation from the correct sources would have confirmed the truth or otherwise of this information.
“During this period of unbridled fabrication of fake news, we will appeal and advise any media organisation which has news leads about Mr Idowu to kindly confirm the facts with us before going to press with the information,” the statement said.
