Lagos state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of expending N3.2bn in preparation for the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari who was eventually represented by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo on Monday.

 

One of the reasons for the President’s visit was to commission various projects embarked upon by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

The PDP described the preparation for the President’s visit as, “a fraud and another expose that the APC is too haphazard in governance, hence the total disconnect between the state governor and the Presidency, thereby causing the state not to know that the president had changed his mind on visiting the state.”

The Party, in a statement said that Ambode must give proper account of the spending. They see the huge amount spent as mismanagement of public funds, and misplacement of priority

According to the statement, “We demand that the over N3.2bn claimed to have been spent to welcome the president to Lagos must be accounted for. The beneficiaries of the contracts and the costs of the contracts involved in the ceremonies must be made public for Lagosians to know. This is needless waste of public funds.”
