DISQUALIFY AMBODE NOW-Lagos PDP; Chides Fashola
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
