The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has warned President Muhamadu Buhari to beware of the former governor of the state and current minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola.
“We sincerely advise President Buhari to be very wary of the deceptive skills of Fashola who will usually hype and celebrate even mediocrity,” the spokesman for the PDP, Taofik Gani,said in a statement on Monday, but praised Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.
Gani added that Ambode had taken government’s presence to many areas in the state allegedly abandoned for eight years by his predecessor, Babatunde Fashola.
“Fashola has a penchant for misrepresenting facts of his achievements in government and would always rationalise obvious inadequacies.
“As governor of Lagos State, he enjoyed unprecedented revenues and donations, yet he left many services untouched or unfinished. He, however, deliberately funded his pro-Fashola media and commentators so much that pseudo and exaggerated achievements were ascribed to him.
“He employed this model to promote his eight years government of mediocrity. Fashola ended up making Lagos State the biggest debtor with local and foreign debts well over N1trn.”
