PDP Has Always Opposed Progress Of Lagos - Fashola
Former Governor of Lagos State Babatunde Fashola has accused of the Peoples Democratic Party of consistently opposing the progress of Nigeria's commercial capital.
Fashola, who led the governorship candidate of the APC, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Obafemi Hamzat to a live television program on TVC on Thursday said that Lagosians should not be hoodwinked into voting a party that had stood against all progressive efforts to make Lagos better.
Fashola cited instances such as the PDP led government's rejection of the power project in Lagos; the opposition to the creation of local government areas and others.
He said: "A few years ago as governor of this state, we started an initiative to break the monopoly of the Federal Government on power with a project in Egbin. The PDP opposed it.
"We then tried again to create local governments so that welfare, sanitation, healthcare could be closer to the people. The PDP opposed it."
The minister said infrastructure in the state suffered neglect under the 16 years of PDP government.
He said federal roads to Apapa, Amuwo-Odofin, Isolo and Matori industrial estates were abandoned for years, forcing some factories to close shop.
He urged the electorate to reject the PDP at the polls, saying the party represents failure and had no idea of how to move the state forward.
Sanwo-Olu on his part urged Lagos residents to reject the PDP and their lies at the polls.
He said the opposition party did almost nothing to help the state when they controlled the Federal Government.
Sanwo-Olu promised to make the state everyone's dream if elected and urged residents to support him during Saturday's election.
