A Senatorial Candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos, Solomon Adeola, has debunked rumours of his death.
Mr. Adeola, who is the Chairman of the House of Representatives Public Accounts Committee at the National Assembly and seeking election into the Senate, on Thursday issued a statement to dismiss the misleading report.
The statement signed by his spokesperson, Kayode Odunaro, said Mr. Adeola was well and alive.
Mr. Odunaro said Mr. Adeola took a break from his campaign following the postponement of the February 14 election and had arrived Abuja on Tuesday to join other members for plenary sessions.
“He was part of the plenary session yesterday and today and attended to further legislative committee duties relating to public accounts with such agencies as Nigerian Communication Commissions amongst others,” the statement explained.
The statement said the candidate remained steadfast in the pursuit of his aspiration to serve the people of Lagos West as senator while fully discharging his duties as the incumbent representative of Alimosho Federal Constituency and the chairman of the Public Accounts Committee in the House.
Mr. Adeola urged all those with a death wish for him to know that only God gives and takes life and that the wishes of mere mortals would remain just a wish.
