Chief Olabode George, a former PDP leader, has taken a swipe at minister of power, works and housing, Babatunde Fashola
George claimed that all Fashola did for Lagos was plant flowers while Ambode really got stuck in and worked for the state.
The former Deputy National Chairman (South) of the PDP, was interviewed by The Punch and he responded to speculations that Ambode had a vendetta against his forerunner.
“Who asked him (Ambode) to do that? Now, people are putting him on the wire that whatever Fashola’s legacy is — I don’t know what legacy that one left behind anyway. Okay, he did Surulere; where else? He was planting flowers. Where is the Bus Rapid Transit (by Fashola’s government) now?” Bode said
“Now, look at it from there: you are governor; what are you doing to impact? Something that will alleviate the poverty — or the ‘suffer, suffer’ like Fela would said — of the people.”
Bode George also added the government is the proper management of resources for the benefit of the people.
“Now, he (Fashola) can’t go back and start saying, ‘I want to go and correct this.’ It’s over. And if you compare him with (Ambode) and I am not saying he (Ambode) is a saint or that he hasn’t made certain mistakes, but as a Lagosian, I can see (his performance) if you go from location A to location B.” he said
