We will Commission Gigantic Projects In Lagos, Not Bus Parks, ADP Tells Ambode
Posted On Mar 29, 2018
The Action Democratic Party (ADP) has taken a swipe at the Lagos State Governor Mr Akinwunmi Ambode over the invitation extended to President Buhari to come and commission a newly built bus park in the state on Thursday.
Speaking to newsmen in Lagos on Wednesday, Prince Adelaja Adeoye, the spokesman for the party said, “it’s rather low on the part of Governor Ambode to invite the President to commission a ‘mere bus park’ and that declaring a public holiday for such is rather wasteful and unnecessary.”
ADP said, they will take over the reign of Lagos in 2019 and invite their own President to come and commission laudable projects that will have a direct impact on the lives of Lagosians. The party maintained that locking down the state over a Presidential visit is pathetic and a sign of desperation to promote a party that has lost all of its goodwill. The party says that, this same APC led government in Lagos vilified former President Goodluck Jonathan for doing same during the last dispensation.
The Party says that it’s preposterous to shut down economic activities in the State because of a Presidential visit that will not add value to the lives of residents. The ADP says that Lagos should be a shinning light for all others in terms of leadership and infrastructural development and not this joke of commissioning bus stops.
ADP also reminded President Buhari that it would have been a thing of honor for him if he had not stopped the rail system conceived by the former Governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Lateef Jakande when he brutality seized power via a military coup and that this bus park is of no consequence.
ADP says that it is time for Lagosians to rise and demand accountability from those that lead them. The party argues that with the massive revenue been generated in Lagos, the state should be competing with some world renowned economies, and that the average Lagosian should feel the impact of governance through the redistribution of wealth.
ADP has charged Lagosians to get ready for real development that will change their lives for good. The party says that they will present a more qualified candidate for the 2019 election.
