2015: Fashola denies being a running mate to Buhari

Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola yesterday debunked rumours making the rounds that he is the running mate of former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari in the 2015 Presidential elections.

Fashola, who gave the clarification at the commemoration of his 2,700 days in office and account of stewardship in the last 100 days in Ikeja, said he was present at Buhari's declaration event because Buhari personally invited him, and based on the respect he had for him.

"My presence at Buhari's declaration was because he came to Lagos to personally deliver an invitation letter to me. It was a pointer that I respect him. it was a pointer that it was an APC event. And it was pointer that I went to a party event. "he said.

On Consensus candidate, he also dispelled speculation that governorship aspirants of the party in Lagos State are holding meetings to endorse a consensus candidate adding that the APC has a constitution which prescribes primaries as prelude for emergence of candidates for elective offices.

Fashola however, said all the aspirants in the APC governorship race were good enough to succeed him as they all acquitted themselves remarkably well in the service of the state.
