Governor Fashola Corrupt: Must Declare Assets
The Lagos State Chapter of PDP has come out very strongly to accuse the Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola, of high level corruption in governance, stating that the governor ploughs the proceeds therefrom into personal businesses, one of which is the newly commissioned 23 Storey Hotel building which has cost 30billion Naira to complete.
The Party aver that it strongly believes that Governor Fashola has about 60Percent financial contribution in the completion of the 23 Storey, 30Billion Naira worth hotel. " That indeed accounted for why he personally commissioned the Hotel"
The Party states thus that ever than before, it is convinced that the Governor and his Predecessor have indeed plunged the State into unnecessary high debt for their own selfish interests only. "Everyday we hear Lagos State Government collects huge Loans.
Presently the State is indebted to the Tune of over a trillion Naira in Local and Foreign Debts. This is in spite that the State now realises at least 23Billion Naira as IGR every month, yet lagos residents are not enjoying improved cheap social-welfare services. What we see instead, are: New Hotels, Shopping Malls, Airlines, Banks, private Housing Estates, Construction Companies; that are linked to the Governor or his predecessor"
The Lagos State PDP consequently reiterates her demand that Governor Fashola must make Public his Asset declaration.
The party has now given the Governor fourteen days (14 days) within which to make public his assets or the Masses shall be mobilised for a protest to demand same.
