Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, accused Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of appointing close relatives of former Governor of Lagos state and All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
According to reports, Gani alleged that Lola Akande and Deji Tinubu are relatives of the APC National leader, saying that they have also fault the nominations of Jide Idris, Akintola Benson, Anofi Elegushi, Ganiu Johnson and Folarin Coker because they have either been personal staff or relatives of the former governors of the state.
“Thus it will continue to be business as usual in the governance of the Lagos state as the state resources will continue to be super-intended by the former governor who is the incumbent governor’s godfather.”
“This list is so mediocre, self-serving, embarrassing that it cannot justify the delay and waste of days. Lagosians should not expect any change from Ambode. By this list, his hands are tied. He will only succeed to the extent that his godfather allows this list to serve Lagosians.”
