The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos has lambast the Lagos state governor, Akinwumi Ambode, for fighting his predecessor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola within his first 100 days as governor.
The PDP added that the Ambode has no concrete plan for the people of Lagos and has chosen to attack Fashola who the party said performed better than Ambode in his 100 days in office.
Publicity Secretary of the Lagos PDP, Mr. Taofik Gani, in an interview with Punch maintained that the revoked contracts and policies of Fashola by Ambode were done in bad faith and not in the interest of the state.
“Ambode’s performance has been dismal. I will score him 20 per cent and the 20 per cent is the achievement of the civil servants who have continued to work. The 20 per cent is not because of Ambode’s personal input.
“He has failed to appoint commissioners despite the fact that his predecessor is a fellow APC member like himself. His government should have hit the ground running.
“I advise him to first and foremost apologise to Lagosians for misleading them during the elections. Obviously, he was not prepared for governance.
“Ambode’s only achievement is fighting Fashola and he has not even done that properly. The people of Lagos want a complete probe of Fashola’s administration after which Ambode would forward a petition to the relevant anti-corruption agencies. After doing that, Ambode should face governance. What he is doing now is diversionary and it is inimical to the development of the state.”
Gani said the All Progressives Congress had done nothing but impoverish the people of Lagos despite the high Internally Generated Revenue.
He said since Fashola left office, Lagos had continued to suffer while social infrastructure like the BRT had become moribund.
