Abuja - The Governor Fashola of Lagos State has denied the insinuation that the All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship candidate for the state, Akin Ambode was dismissed from the State’s Civil Service.
Fashola described the rumour as one of the “many lies” of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) aimed at deceiving voters into voting for the party.
Fashola explained that Ambode retired voluntarily from the Public Service after 27 years of meritorious service to the state.

The governor called on Lagosians to ignore such reports that would likely come from the rival party in the run up to Saturday’s governorship election.
He alleged that the PDP had done nothing in the last 16 years but lie to Nigerians about practically everything including the state of the economy and the security situation as well as other sensitive issues that affect the lives of the people.
He alleged the PDP-controlled Federal Government had ignored the State in Federal appointments and not only failed to maintain its numerous infrastructure in the state but refused to pay back to the State the money it has spent, amounting to N51 billion.
