Lagos APC flays PDP over Ambode’s asset declaration,



A statement credited to the Lagos State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PD that Governor Akinwumi Ambode should declare his assets or be regarded as a pretender has been described as uninformed, hollow and laughable.

The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) which stated this said that PDP was lost and needed help to survive the demeaning fate it faces today.

In a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Joe Igbokwe, the APC dismissed “Lagos PDP as a group of ill-informed jokers who are being dealt a big blow by their present shambolic state.”

It advised Lagos PDP to “take a period to school itself about constitutional provisions regarding asset declaration before it comes out just to make some unserious noise to source relevance it does not have.”

APC added: “PDP Lagos continues to make us believe it exists in Lagos where it has been dealt serious electoral blows year in year out.

Lagos PDP is an unserious group that periodically amuses itself with such hollow vituperations as asking Governor Ambode to declare his assets or be regarded as “pretender governor”-whatever that means.

This can only be the fruits of uncoordinated thoughts of serial losers that have no inkling on how to handle its latest round of electoral defeat,   “When what calls itself Lagos PDP are not engaged in unending fight with themselves as a way of expressing their electoral frustration, they are busy making disoriented demands that are both hollow in articulation and empty in reasons.

It is not surprising that Lagos PDP is coming out the way they did after the thorough APC victory in both Lagos and the center as well as majority of states in Nigeria.

“Lagos PDP in making the demand of Governor Ambode to declare his assets must have woken up from a long slumber that robs them both of the constitutional provision on assets declaration and the fact that as incoming Governor, the governor declared his assets with the Code of Conduct Bureau, in keeping with the constitutional requirements for his office.

“It is certain that Lagos PDP in keeping with its well known penchant for mediocrity and as a purveyor of kindergarten gossip, is unaware of what the Law says on asset declaration which states that on assumption of office and exit from office, the Governor or any other political office holder is bound by law to declare his assets to the Code of Conduct Bureau at both points.

It is the duty of CCB to verify your claims at the point of exit of office against what you declared at the point of entry. “This, the Governor did and has plunged deep into the demanding task of governing Lagos while the PDP roves aimlessly in want of what to say to keep afloat.

We would wish that Lagos PDP quit threading in an unproductive circle of self foolery by their resort to outlandish and wild demands that further diminish it among Lagosians.

“We want to educate the speculators in PDP that governance is not a tea party and that running a political party is not the same as periodically making inchoate and tendentious demands that lack reasons and conviction.

Governor Ambode is full of energy, full of ideas , robust , capable, as strong as the rock of Gibraltar and totally committed in dealing with the complex problems of a mega city like Lagos for which he is elected.

Distracting him through such baseless and laughable display of crass ignorance and naivety, as Lagos PDP, is an exercise in futility for majority of Lagosians knows that Lagos PDP is gone for good in Lagos.”
