Dele Alake, a former Lagos Commissioner for Information and Strategy has denied interest in the vacant Lagos East senatorial seat.
Naija News reports that the Lagos East senatorial seat was formerly occupied by Senator Adebayo Osinowo, who died on June 15.
The race to occupy the now vacant seat is heating up in Lagos with political bigwigs linked to the position.
Dele Alake and a former Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, have been linked.
But in an interview with the Nation, Dele Alake described his purported interest in the seat as false and a figment of the imagination of mischief-makers.
The former commissioner stated that he has never indicated interest in the seat.
Dele Alake said that he has never discussed the matter with anybody.
“lt is junk journalism. The magazine broke the cardinal rule of journalism by not speaking with me to confirm what it heard or was told. This is highly unprofessional,” he said.
