PDP cautions Sanwo-Olu, “Leave Ambode Alone.”
The Lagos People’s Democratic Party chapter, on Wednesday, cautioned the newly elected governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, against victimization of his predecessor, Akinwunmi Ambode.
Taofik Gani, the PDP Lagos Publicity Secretary, in his statement, said that Sanwo-Olu should rather focus on surpassing the achievements of the former governor rather than going after him.
“The Lagos State chapter of the PDP has counselled the new Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to adopt positivism and eschew any iota of vendetta pursuit if he must succeed as a governor,” Gani said.
According to Lagos PDP, “the undoing of Mr Sanwo-Olu will be for him to attempt unnecessarily going after his immediate predecessor and or opposition interests, rather than concentrating on his programmes to better the living conditions of Lagosians.”
The opposition party, which described Ambode as the best governor in Lagos since 1999, added that he would be remembered for good.
The PDP urged the new governor to appoint professionals in his cabinet and not quacks thus:
“The Lagos State PDP attests to the unparalleled achievements of former Governor Ambode in developing the state, especially compared to the performances of former governors Bola Tinubu and Babatunde Fashola.
“The PDP thus counsels Sanwo-Olu to rather look into how to surpass Ambode’s legacies instead of attempting to victimize any perceived opponents before and after his emergence.”
