Billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola, has joined the race for the governorship seat of Lagos state. The oil magnet on Tuesday announced that he has accepted the offer of the PDP ticket made to him by the leaders of the party in the state.

With a message on his twitter handle, Femi Ote$, posted about 6pm on Tuesday, the business mogul offered N100,000 to the first 1000 persons to re-tweet the  message. 

Popular celebrity publisher, Dele Momodu, also shared the news on his Twitter handle, @DeleMomodu. 

He tweeted: “Breaking news: Lagos 2019 promises to be interesting. PDP offers Femi Otedola governorship ticket. He’s accepted and personally confirmed to The Boss newspaper.”
