The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Lagos State chapter, has warned Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu against spending the state taxpayers money on the upcoming governorship election in Ondo state.
This was contained in a statement released by the Lagos PDP’s spokesperson, Gani Taofik, titled ‘Resist wasting Lagos funds on Ondo” on Wednesday.
PDP claimed that Governor Sanwo-Olu was not appointed to champion the campaign in Ondo state due to his experience in politics but because the All Progressives Congress, APC, would want the governor to fund the election with Lagos State funds.
The statement read, “The selection of Sanwoolu as Head of the APC Ondo State Governorship campaign council cannot be for his political experience but because the APC intends to use Lagos funds to run the Ondo elections.
“The party urge the Lagos State Commissioner for Finance and the Accountant General to prepare for accountability within this period of Edo and Ondo elections.
“We will invite EFCC and also support the legal protest against this selection targeted at diverting Lagos taxes in the face of colossal infrastructure inadequacies begging for attention in the state.
“Governor Sanwoolu should show empathy to Lagosians by rejecting the Greek gift selection as head of the APC campaign council, so as to concentrate on his much-touted quest to improve the state development.
“For the PDP, the state will be further plunged into avoidable debts and infrastructure deficits if the governor delves into such party assignments obviously distractive and prodigal at this time.”
