PDP counsels Tinubu, FasholaAction Congress of Nigeria, Party Politics, Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP) Saturday, August 18th, 2012
The South West Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has advised the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) government in Lagos to use the Economist Intelligence Unit report, which ranked Lagos as the third worst city to live in the world as a challenge to stop propaganda and window dressing projects.
The ranking was done by the international organisation based on its assessment of the natural environment, state of education facilities, health care delivery, standard of infrastructure and the general well- being of the people in each of the 140 cities it assessed.
The PDP said in a statement issued by its Zonal Publicity Secretary, Hon. Kayode Babade that; “looking at the indices used, there is nothing strange in the report to an average Nigerian who is not hoodwinked by an administration that believes more in propaganda rather than in carrying out real developmental projects.”
The PDP said it was happy that the truth which both ex-governor Bola Tinubu and Governor Raji Fashola had been trying to cover was finally out to the whole world.
The party said the two ACN leaders should see the verdict as a global confirmation of their failure as administrators of the state in the last 13 years despite trillions of naira which accrued to the State.
“With this report, Lagosians should begin to ask questions as to the rationale behind the use of the state funds to purchase political powers in other states of the federation and neighbouring countries,” the PDP said.
