APC blasts PDP for rejecting Ambode’s commissioners’ list

30 September 2015, 14:03

Lagos - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State has faulted the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) call on members of the Lagos State House of Assembly (LSHA) not to approve the list of commissioner-nominees forwarded by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to the chamber for screening and clearance, reports Punch.

The party accused the PDP of not only meddling in its affairs but also of promoting impunity.

The APC in a statement by its Publicity Secretary in the state, Joe Igbokwe, said the PDP was making needless noise over the nominees list sent to House, because the opposition party did not understand the workings of the state.

He described as reckless the PDP’s reason that the nominees had links with a national leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu.

He stated that those nominated by Governor Ambode are people who have been tested.
