Lagos PDP indicts Sanwo-Olu in Ambode’s ordeal, calls for Tinubu’s probe

‘We’re ready to welcome Ambode to our party’— PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State on Thursday, accused Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu as the mastermind of the recent protest, and subsequent call for the probe of former Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode at the Lagos State House of Assembly.

In a statement by its spokesperson, Taofik Gani, Lagos PDP said that the protest was deliberately orchestrated to humiliate the immediate past governor.

“Disturbing is the tendency of such protests to overheat the polity and increase the already created loss of confidence in the government,” the PDP said.

“The governor himself is sponsoring such protests against his predecessor, unfortunately overheating the polity, and to distract Lagosians away from his abysmal performances.

“To the PDP, Governor Sanwo-Olu has created “Official Vendetta” in Lagos governance; unfortunately for him, his ranking is going down whilst he needlessly goes after his predecessor,” the statement said.

Going further, PDP called for a thorough investigation into the administrations of Bola Tinubu, Raji Fashola and Akinwunmi Ambode, rather than singling Ambode out to be nailed on the cross.

“Lagosians are eager to know the stewardship of their former governors.

”From 1999 till 2018 over N17 trillion was realized as IGR, royalties, Federal Allocations, investments and crude oil discovery.

“Unfortunately, much of these monies are linked to Hotels, Airlines, Oil Companies, construction companies, home & Abroad,” the statement read.
