Lagos State Government at the weekend said the Akinwunmi Ambode led administration elected under the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will not be distracted by statements made by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The state’s Commissioner for Home Affairs, Dr. Abdul-Akeem Abdul-Lateef, while reacting to the statement made by the PDP that it will defeat the APC in the governorship election in Lagos in 2019 at the third Iju-Ishaga Health Day (IHD) held in Lagos said the leading opposition party in the state is reputed for making infantile and highly jejune statements.
He said, “I want to assure Lagosians that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode will not be distracted by the statement by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). The governor will not be distracted by political Lilliputians whose current retrogression has compelled them to operate as dysfunctional silos.
“Akinwunmi Ambode is irrevocably committed to the completion of all on-going projects in the state. He has just presented before the Lagos State House of Assembly a budget size of ,N1.046 trillion worth the size of about nine states of the federation.
“Where does he have the time to respond to them if he has committed himself to the completion of Agege Pencinema flyover in nine months. He has said the Oshodi world class transport interchange which comprises of pedestrian bridges, shopping malls, CCTVs which will regenerate Oshodi into becoming a world class Business District will soon be completed.
“Where does he have the time to respond to worthless statement from a failed party when he has committed himself to the completion of the Oshodi International Airport Road in 15 Months, imagine the governor that is busy looking for how to build four stadia in the four regions of the state.”
The commissioner hinted that the governor said there will be one stadium in Igbogbo, Epe , Ajegunle , Badagry in addition to the one he is building in Onikan currently .
“ A governor that is talking about regenerating the state, bringing people together, ensuring that the Lagosians have the best in terms of having dividends of democracy .The projects of Ambode will campaign for him. Lagosians are the most enlightened, the most informed people who are witnesses to the unprecedented infrastructural renewal being witnessed in Lagos state.”
He added that the claim by the PDP that Oshodi Isolo is there base is false because the PDP House of Assembly candidates that were elected under the party had since dumped the party and became members of the APC, saying those in the National Assembly, Abuja have been issued a red card .
