Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola, has asked Lagosians not to entrust the governance of the state to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. Fashola’s media aide, Akeem Bello, in a statement said: “Lagosians have the responsibility to keep the change that has been achieved so far.”
The governor while enjoining residents to collect their permanent voters card said their votes was the only option they have “to protect what you have built in Lagos.”
“Lagos is too important to Nigeria, it is too important to Africa, it is too important across the world, to be entrusted to those who want to experiment with it,” he said.
Fashola upbraided the PDP for the security challenges confronting the country. The country, he said, is too important globally and continentally “to be left in the hands of those who play politics with the lives of her citizens.”
Fashola quizzed “why smaller economies could get petrol easily for their people and why we have to queue for hours and days to get petrol in a biggest economy in Africa.
“When people come and say that there is no power, they only speak of their inefficiency and incapacity to deliver power. Electricity, as an invention, is over 100 years old; so there is no excuse for Nigerians to continue to live in darkness.”
