The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State has said the immediate past governor of the state, Babatunde Fashola who is now the Minister of Works, Power and Housing, would fail as a minister, reports The Punch.
The party noted that Mr. Babatunde Fashola, who is now the Minister of Works, Power and Housing, is not an achiever.
The Publicity Secretary of Lagos PDP, Taofik Gani, said Fashola’s deficiencies would be exposed, now that he is in charge of all Federal Government infrastructures across the country.
Gani said Fashola as governor relied heavily on propaganda to hype his performance in government.
He said, “Can Fashola point to any low-cost housing scheme he did in his eight years as governor? The houses he built under the Lagos Home Owners Scheme cost about N15m on average. Can the Eko Atlantic – which cost hundreds of millions of naira to buy – be classified as affordable housing? Can Fashola be compared with former Governor Lateef Jakande who built over 20,000 housing units in four years?
“There is nothing super about Fashola. He was only compensated by President Muhammadu Buhari because Lagos contributed greatly to Buhari’s campaign.”READ ALSO – APC Calls On Fashola To Fix Port Harcourt-Enugu Express Road

Gani, while evaluating the performance of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, said he did not need to criticise Ambode since Lagosians were doing that every day.
He, however, urged Lagosians not to be deceived by the inauguration of 200 BRT buses by Ambode.
He said, “Ambode has not performed well. Ambode inaugurated some BRT buses but what has the state benefitted from the ones on the ground? And now the Senate has approved $200m for Ambode’s government. It is unfortunate.”
