Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola has taken a swipe at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the second time in forty-eight hours.
The state’s helmsman had accused the PDP-led FG of abandoning the Apapa axis of the metropolis for long, a situation that has led to the regular horrific traffic jam.Inspecting the roads in the area at the weekend, he said, “Businesses are shutting down, people are living a very traumatic life. I just wonder why everything is falling into pieces under this federal government. Everything about the country is falling into pieces, and Apapa has not been spared.”
“The port cannot be managed. The fuel distribution cannot be managed without causing so much pain. The roads have been destroyed. People are sleeping on the road because the central government cannot effectively manage the distribution of fuel.
Continuing his attack on the PDP yesterday, he questioned the use of the Gani Fawehinmi Park at Ojota for a political gathering.
Fashola said the party had no shame “otherwise, it wouldn’t have used a park it once described as cosmetic and a waste of money”.
Last week Friday, the PDP organised a rally at the Gani Fawehinmi Park, where the Ekiti State governor-elect, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, addressed his party supporters and asked the APC to get set to vacate leadership positions in the South-west region.
Speaking after the 2014 Tree Planting Campaign at Sangotedo in Eti-Osa East Local Council Development Area of the state, Governor Fashola said: “They lied, they forgot what they said. They complained that the park was cosmetic. They have forgotten that the park was cosmetic; have they now forgotten that the park is elitist?. They have no shame in their unthinking inconsistency”.
“All over the state, wherever you go, you will see scores of parks and millions of trees at different stages of development. Our uninformed and unable opponents criticised this initiative; they called it cosmetic and elitist.”
The governor added that PDP clearly demonstrated their ignorance because the environment was also the new economy.
“They are ignorant people. What they called cosmetic and elitist has developed our economy; it has created jobs and has put food on the tables of many people who would otherwise be unemployed.”
