Lagos - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State has accused Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of neglect and prodigality’ in his style of governance.
The party in a statement issued on Wednesday by Taofik Gani, the party's state Publicity Secretary , said Governor Ambode now appears disillusioned and has thus compromised the welfare, and security concerns of Lagos state for the sake of his party’s interest, thereby plunging the state into neglect.
The accusation by the PDP is coming on the heels of the increased participation of Governor Ambode in what the party has described as ‘the inexpedient commitment of Lagos funds into partisan activities that are not beneficial to the state.’

The statement reads: “Governor Ambode abandoned governance and travelled out of the state to Osun and Edo states within the last five days, at such period that he ought to empathise with victims of the flooding now ravaging the state; destroying property, causing distress and deaths in parts of the state.”
“it is now obvious that Governor Ambode is nonchalant to the plight of Lagosians and attaches no humanitarian value to the welfare and lives of lagosians thus his decision to take the government; Executive and Legislature to Osun state to commission just a school building constructed by the Osun state governor, Aregbesola, after almost whole eight years in office.”
“Worse still is that governor Ambode accepted the needless burden to be the National coordinator of the APC Edo governorship campaign committee and has literally moved Lagos governance to Edo state, squandering an amount now believed to be over Seven (7) billion naira and also pledging further human, logistical and financial supports to the APC candidate for the election day.
"We are keeping tabs on him and we shall demand his probe at the appropriate time”.
