Tinubu slams Ambode, says the ship of Lagos headed in a very wrong direction in 2017-2018
National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former governor of Lagos, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has slammed Akinwumi Ambode, the immediate past governor of the state, alleging that the leadership of Lagos state was headed in the wrong direction between 2017-2018.
Recall that Akinwumi Ambode who was governor of Lagos state from 2015 to 2019 could not secure a second term despite his attempts.
Tinubu said Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his cabinet members have demonstrated unequal determination to redevelop and rebuild for the people of Lagos.
This statement was made by the APC national leader while speaking at the inauguration of the Agege Pen-Cinema Bridge on Friday March 5.
“Sometimes in 2017-2018, the ship of this state seems to have headed in a very wrong direction. Ever since Babajide became the captain of the ship of our state, he has turned it round to the right direction of progress, development, and good leadership quality.
“Both of you (Sanwo-Olu and Hamzat) and the entire cabinet have demonstrated unequal determination to redevelop, rebuild for the people of Lagos. You have made us seen a fine and determined government for the progress and quality of life of our people.”
Tinubu also advised youths to steer clear from thuggery, as there is no development without peace.
“Don’t copy vagabonds and those who are into thuggery. There is no development if there is no peace. We must encourage peace. The government will ensure that you get the right education. Education is an investment in your future.
“Destruction and disruption will not help you to reach the destination you desire to reach. We will support your aspirations but help the state, ensure peace in our state and country.
“Despite the turbulence and crisis of the virus, the lockdown, you are able to continue to deliver this state. You have shown great determination as a government.”
