Lagos gov, Akinwunmi Ambode
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has reacted to the defection of Lagos Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, Wasiu Oluwo, from the All Progressives Congress, APC, to the party.
The PDP said the commissioner would be remembered for that particular action.
The main opposition party stated this in a statement by its Publicity Secretary in the state, Taofik Gani on Wednesday.
The statement said, “He has taken a political step never to be regretted. We encourage all remaining true democrats to join the PDP now. Lagos has been in bondage of a unipolar rule and control
“Indeed with all that can be conceded to Ambode as due performances, he was denied a second term on the selfish, flimsy, vindictive excuse that he refused to fund the APC chieftains. Our emphasis here is that the APC is desperately holding onto Lagos State to enrich the chieftains directly or by bogus contracts awarded.
“We call on the Lagos electorate to join this revolution to free Lagos. We stand on our honour and before God to pledge that Lagos internally generated revenue shall be wholesomely spent for Lagos.”
