People’s Democratic party of Nigeria (PDP) awarded Akinwunmi Ambode, the governor of LAGOS state a meagre 10 percent based on his performance till date.

The Publicity Secretary of the PDP in Lagos State, Mr. Taofik Gani, during an interview said that the governor had not done well in any sector during his six-month period.

Gani said the governor could not take credit for the procurement of crime-fighting equipment because they were bought through the Lagos State Security Trust Fund which is sustained by banks, multinationals and members of the public.

Gani told Ambode to give a breakdown of how the money was spent instead of just stating that N4bn was spent scoring him 10 percent.

So, we score him 10 per cent as he has not been able to meet the expectations of the people. Spending over N4bn on security equipment is high. We believe the amount was grossly exaggerated. Let him reveal to us the amount of money in the LSSTF” he said.

He added “We do not believe that N4bn was spent on funding the police which is a Federal Government responsibility. The governor should give us a breakdown of the spending. Let us know how much each helicopter cost and how much each patrol van cost.

Gani advised Ambode to focus on his promise of reducing the unemployment rate in the state.

He said, “The performance of the governor has been disappointing despite the propaganda that helped him get into power. In the area of education, things are worse. The Lagos State University is now worse. No infrastructure has been built in the school.

“The traffic congestion in the state is very bad as trucks now park on bridges with impunity. The governor has reduced the power of traffic officials that should manage traffic.

 “Ambode should throw in the towel because he has made people lose confidence in politicians due to his poor performance.

In retaliation to this The APC spokesman said Lagos PDP had become hungry because there was no more money coming from Abuja since the party had lost power at the centre.

The APC noted that the efforts of Ambode will be visible soon and six months is too short period to evaluate the governor’s performance.
