Lagos – The Lagos State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has advised Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State to imbibe the practice of transparency and accountability in governance.
The party in a statement signed by Taofik Gani, publicity secretary, described the refusal of the present administration to carry the people along in most of its policies and programmes as arrogant.
The PDP declared, “Ambode’s government is not a departure from the just ended Fashola government, which was very arrogant and fake in its interface with the public.”
The opposition party wants Ambode’s administration to give detailed account of government’s investments since he came to power in May 2015.
“Since the days of Fashola, shares are being bought as investments in some multinational companies, dividends on such shares are never made public.
“Governor Ambode recently claimed to have injected 450 new buses into the BRT fleet; Lagosians are interested in the whereabouts of the initial buses and the profits.
“Like Fashola, this administration claims to have bought hectares of land in some states as far as the North for farming. Lagosians have never seen any farm produce from such investment,” the PDP said.
