Lagos - The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has faulted a poll by the African Leadership Magazine which rated Governor Akinwunmi Ambode as the best performing governor in the country.
The Lagos PDP said the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, and his Ondo State counterpart, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, had performed better than Ambode.
The opposition party’s reaction was against the backdrop of the rating titled, “Good governance poll for Nigeria’s top performing governors.”
The PDP said the magazine’s poll was allegedly sponsored by the state government with the aim of misleading the public.
The Publicity Secretary of the Lagos PDP, Gani Taofik, on Thursday, described the rating as laughable.
News24 previously reported that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos state is currently Nigeria’s best performing governor according to a poll by African Leadership Magazine.
Ambode’s Chief Press Secretary, Habib Aruna said that the poll tagged; ‘ Good Governance Polls for Nigeria’s Top Performing Governor, ’ started two weeks ago, with Ambode maintaining the lead with increased 36.1 percent of the total votes cast.
The reasoning behind the poll according to the group is to monitor performance and gauge the mood of Nigerians.
