FASHOLA @ 50
The Lagos State Chapter of PDP has congratulated the Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Raji "Friyo" Fashola on his 50th Birthday celebration. The party prays that the Lord bless the Governor with more years on earth.
It would be recalled that the governor celebrated his 50th Birthday last Friday which was also the same day (Friday) he was born fifty years ago.
The party particularly commends the appropriate decision of the Governor to have a low-Key birthday celebration, stating further that it was the only expedient decision to make in view of the backlog of promises yet to be fulfilled to lagosians in terms of dividends of democracy.
"While we congratulate Governor Fashola on his 50th birthday, we are more impressed by his decision to have a Low key celebration. By this singular act, we commend him. It is our counselling that the lagos ACN would emulate our gesture and further desist from its stereotyped manner of condemning anything from PDP leaders"
The Party however states that with the Monumental resources available to the State, Rededication and the Time still left, Governor Fashola can still give to Lagosians the lagos of their dreams. "He can particularly improve in the areas of actual Housing for the Masses, Roads Construction and Rehabilitation, reduced School fees at the ONLY state University, Healthcare Services, Human Rights violations by LASTMA and KAI officials and the provision of alternative opportunities for Okada Riders and Marketers who have been displaced from their chosen sources of income.
"Finally and as a birthday gift to Lagosians, we appeal to the Governor to order the release of arrested street hawkers, most of whom are under the age of 17 years. These group of people who are languishing in cells and Prisons in the State can be released to sin no more"
