Lagos: PDP Slams Gov. Ambode For Refusing To Conduct LG Polls

The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has criticized/criticized Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and the state House of Assembly for refusing to conduct elections into the state’s local government councils.

The Party, through a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, stated that the government and the House are showing a lack of commitment as well as sincerity in conducting the council poll and also added that the delay in the conduct of the council elections showed that Ambode was not prepared to govern Lagos in accordance with the provisions of the constitution.

The PDP alleged that Ambode’s attempt to reform the local government system was actually a means of not holding the council elections.

The statement noted that a serious House of Assembly would summon the governor to explain why he spends the state’s resources at this time without commissioners and democratically elected local council leaders.
