I visited Gbagada Hospital for the needy, not my mental health– Sanwo-Olu

APC Governorship candidate for the 2019 general elections, Babajide Sanwo Olu has cried out saying that he is not mentally deranged. The politician explained during a recent live programme of Channels Television, “Sunrise Daily,” earlier today, that contrary to the accusations of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, he only visited Gbagada Hospital to help the needy.

Though Ambode in a public gathering on September 30,2018 alleged that Sanwo-Olu had undergone rehabilitation at Gbagada General Hospital, The ex-commissioner, however, stated that in politics, people are bound to make unfounded allegations in a bid to gain the upper hand.

He said:

“This is me. I’m 53 years old. I’m sure I’m older than all of you (programme anchors).

“I missed my exercise this morning just because I needed to come here. But you know, in all of the things you’ve talked about, people get overly excited. For whatever it is, emotions will rise.

“People will say things that they haven’t corroborated very well. People will say things that they haven’t checked.

“It’s not him (Ambode) that would have gone there to check; someone must have hurriedly said that and just in the bid to catch up, you hold on to anything.”

“In fact, we’re doing something today at Eko Hotel for 5,000 or 6,000 kids. I go round and give to the poor. I’ve been training people and doing a lot in my senatorial district.

“So, I give back to the poor. It’s ensuring that when we have the opportunity, a lot of people need our help and we can do it.

“I go to various hospitals, various orphanages and I just give and give.

“Those were the only times in my life that I ever passed through that hospital that was mentioned. I give to all other hospitals including that hospital. I have never ever been there before. And by the way, my wife is even a medical doctor,”
