Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola (SAN), and the All Progressives
Congress governorship candidate in the state, Akinwunmi Ambode, on
Thursday took a swipe at for his repeated
visits to Lagos ahead of the March 28 presidential election.

They said Jonathan is being deceived by the state leaders of as Lagosians would not vote for him.

He said, “They have said the President is coming to Lagos. He is welcome
to come; Lagos is part of his constituency but we will not vote for him
because when we needed him, he did not come to help us. When the
international airport road was damaged and he promised to fix it, did
you see him?

“When Ebola hit Lagos, did he come?

When Kuramo Beach was overflowing and it was going to wipe out the
entire Goshen Beach Estate, did you see the President? When I took him
to Ibeju-Lekki, where people were losing their lands, we flew in a
helicopter to the place but after that, the President never returned. I
wrote letters and appealed but no response.

“We have been using your taxes to protect those communities. So, you
have been on your own, with your own party and government. So, he can
come 200 times but will you vote for him? The only time the President
works is a few weeks to elections. When there was security problem in
Lagos, who was buying guns and patrol vehicles for the police? Was it
not us?”

They spoke at a rally in the Ifako/Ijaye Local Government Area of the state.
Fashola accused the President of distributing dollars during his
five-day visit to the state last week, adding that Jonathan’s planned
visit to Lagos on Sunday would amount to nothing.
Ambode said his supporters were free to collect money from Jonathan when
he comes to visit on Sunday. He, however, urged the people of the state
not to sell their PVCs to the PDP.

In his words: “When they offer you dollars, collect it, it is our money. But vote for .”
