The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Lagos State chapter has given kudos to the Lagos State Government and security operatives in the state over the successful rescue of three schoolgirls abducted from Babington Junior Seminary, Ikorodu Lagos last week.
The party, in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Taofik  Gani  particularly poured encomiums on the state governor, Akinwunmi  Ambode for acting promptly which led to the quick rescue of the girls.
“We commend all the forces who participated in the rescue of the three schoolgirls. Particularly, we want to say that the state government, led by the state governor, Mr. Akinwunmi  Ambode demonstrated leadership by coming out to take specific role which led to the success of the operation. That is worth commending” he said.
The party however warned  the governor not to rest on its oars or politicise the issue, adding that it must be up and doing in ensuring maximum security for Lagosians.
“We are quick to also say that the governor should not be over excited.  He should not lay claim to success if he is also not ready to take responsibility for failure. We believe that it was a security lapses that led to the abduction of the girls in the first place because we are made to believe that in every school, we have a neighbourhood watch and other specific security” .
“ It turned out that was nit in place that school.  So, the state government needs to be up and doing. And while we commend the rescue of the girls, we don’t want this state government to politicize or over celebrate it” he said.
