Former National Vice-Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olabode George, has flayed the administration of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, government in Lagos State just as he restated his party’s readiness to wrest power from the party in 2015.
He said this in Lagos, weekend, while receiving defectors from ACN at the party’s secretariat in Lagos.
Chief George berated the Lagos State Government for failing to address the problems facing Lagosians, noting that: “I am not surprised that every reasonable and thoughtful Lagosian is abandoning the ACN sinking ship in Lagos.
”Tinubu and his co-travellers are clueless about what to do. They are in power, but they are not in government. They are collecting over N40 billion every month in internally- generated revenue and yet, the people live in misery and penury.”
While he said the party was putting its house in order to ensure it emerges victorious in the 2015 governorship election, he enjoined members of PDP to join hands to work for the progress of the party.
He said: “Is Fashola a symbol of our future? No. Is Tinubu a symbol of our future? No. Fashola, Tinubu and the ACN gang are the worst nightmares that are now tormenting our psyche. We must flush them out, we must throw them back to where they belong.
‘The journey has started right now. We cannot wait a minute longer; the mission is our collective responsibility. We must all join hands to remove the ACN disease and scourge from our midst.”
Former governor of Ekiti State, Segun Oni, expressed optimism that PDP will form the next government in Lagos State.
