The lagos state chapter of PDP has accused the governorship candidate of

APC; Akinwunmi Ambode of breaching section 91 of the electoral act 2010 as

amended which stipulates maximum N200,000,000 as fund permitted to be

spent by a governorship candidate.
The party further accused the APC candidate and the incumbent governor,

Fashola, of flouting the electoral act and INEC rules on civil campaigns

by always attacking the person of Jimi Agbaje, the PDP candidate at their

rallies now ongoing.
Consequently, the PDP has called on EFCC to interrogate Ambode whilst

demanding that INEC should summarily disqualify the APC Candidate.

Making clear its assertions through its spokesman, Mr. Taofik Gani, the

PDP buttresses that its intelligence team has detected that Ambode has

spent at least N6.7 billion on campaign strategies placed as: employing

expatriates, board Adverts, Radio and Television Jingles, souvenirs,

Vehicles and campaign houses etc.
These the party asserts have been made possible by the over #32 billion

federal government Local government funds for three months now diverted

into the Ambode Campaigns. The party also claim that Fashola has deployed

all government property and paraphernalia to support Ambode. Such include:

BRT/LAGBUS; FOOTBRIDGES; SCHOOL FENCES; GOVERNMENT OFFICES; ROADS; STATE

MEDIA OUTFITS to mention a few.
“We are not worried that Ambode's campaign is aggressive. It infact

suggests that the APC has nothing to be comfortable about in their

governance for 16 years. We are however uncomfortable because Ambode has

spent over N6.7 billion on his campaigns and this fund is made available

by Fashola who is now starving the local government councils. Fashola is

very unfair to lagosians. He has abandoned governance and now attending

rallies with Ambode.
Laughably he does not see any achievement to mention at such rallies but

to cast aspersions on our Candidate, Jimi Agbaje. He has deployed all

state advantages to support Ambode. We call on well meaning lagosians to

condemn this actions. It is our expectation that Fashola would stop his

obvious support for Ambode at the expense of governance in the state.

Indeed we demand that Ambode be disqualified now
