The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos state, has said it does not see anything special in the appointment of Raji Fashola as the minister of power, works and housing.

Speaking to newsmen, the Publicity Secretary of Lagos PDP, Mr. Taofik Gani said “There is nothing super about Fashola. He was only compensated by President Muhammadu Buhari because Lagos contributed greatly to Buhari’s campaign.”

He also said “Can Fashola point to any low-cost housing scheme he did in his eight years as governor? The houses he built under the Lagos Home Owners Scheme cost about N15m on average. Can the Eko Atlantic – which cost hundreds of millions of naira to buy – be classified as affordable housing? Can Fashola be compared with former Governor Lateef Jakande who built over 20,000 housing units in four years?”

This is coming on the heels of the Leader of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), Dr Frederick Fasehun’s comment, describing Fashola’s portfolio as overfeeding.

The Lagos PDP spokesman said he does not see the minister of works making any reasonable impact, adding that he might fail because he is not an achiever.
