PDP brought bombing, kidnapping to Nigeria- Fashola

Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos state yesterday blamed the PDP-led federal government for the poor state of the country’s security and electricity, saying; “Before they assumed office in 1999, there was no bombing in Nigeria and there was no kidnapping.”

The Governor also said the ongoing Egyptian crisis would be a window of economic opportunity for Nigeria if the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP- led Federal Government can implement the right policy and exhibit the right attitude towards it.

Governor Fashola made this known while commissioning series of projects embarked upon by the state government held at Eti-Osa Local Government Area of the state.

The projects commissioned include two blocks of 12 classrooms  each for both junior and secondary schools in Gbara Grammar school. A block  of 13 classrooms  was also commissioned at Olomu community school. A mini-water works scheme was  commissioned at Badore, Ajah .

Fashola said: “They have made security and electricity worse in Nigeria. This is the time to kick out PDP at every level of government in Nigeria.”

According to him: “I am leading that crusade. PDP has failed. PDP does not deserve to stay in government longer than one minute.”

The Governor said, “We are tired of living with a diet of broken promises. When there is crisis in your neighbourhood, who do you see? My phone number has remained in the public domain.

“Tell the other parties to stop remaining anonymous. Let them tell you how you can reach them.”

On the Egyptian conflict Fashola said “The conflict in Egypt is causing that country at least one million tourist.”

The governor added: “Riot, strikes and civil disturbance will only slow down the pace of development in any country.”

He said “We must open our doors to embrace those tourists. When tourists come, there will be more money in circulation, new businesses will spring up and novel opportunity will surface.

“This is a golden opportunity for us because tourism is in this axis. Lagos is the centre for domestic solution for Nigeria’s problem,” Fashola added.

According to him “Lagos State government is ready and thinking ahead, because anywhere there is crisis, there is an opportunity. Lagos is the centre for domestic solution for Nigeria problem.

“The crisis in Egypt today is an economic opportunity for Nigeria. Let us do the right thing: right policy, attitude. Let us work together to make Nigeria and especially Lagos state great.”
