The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos state has said since the All Progressives Congress-led federal government took over power over eight months ago, it has only fulfilled one campaign promise – the fight against corruption.
The party said the federal government was only focused on fighting graft meanwhile corruption still remains “at its backyard”.
The Lagos PDP Chairman, Capt. Tunji Shelle (retd.), who spoke while addressing members of the party during its General Assembly on Thursday, said the country needed the PDP to arrest the current downturn of the economy.
“A new government came in May 2015 and up till now, nothing has happened. We have the history of stolen budget, missing budget, and padded budget. Is that what we are looking for? Is that the change we are looking for?” Mr. Shelle queried.
Giving his assessment of the Akinwunmi Ambode-led administration in the state, the PDP chief said: “I can’t see any spark in the new governor of Lagos State. The only thing he has done that I know is that he has added to BRT buses. No other thing has happened outside this. So if I have to score him, I’ll give him below average”.
