The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has accused the Action Congress of Nigeria, Lagos chapter, of failing the people of the state.
Chairman of Lagos state PDP, Mr. Olatunji Shelle, said this while addressing journalists at the state secretariat in Lagos, on Monday.
Shelle said the ACN was a disappointment to the people. He added that the PDP was determined to make a difference in Lagos during the forthcoming 2015 elections, which he described as “a date with history.”
The chairman said the people would be looking up to the PDP as an alternative because they had been long tired of the policies the ACN-led government, had been implementing in the state.
He said, “The Lagos PDP would change the tide of electoral performance in 2015, and we are resolute to achieving this goal. Actually, no one should be surprised about this because we have the people looking up to us as a viable alternative.
“The people had consistently said they were tired of the ACN government in the state and we certainly have a date with history in 2015. Opinion poll, as at today, indicates that the ACN government in Lagos State has been a disappointment to the people.
“For a long time now, the ACN government has made life unbearable for Lagosians through obnoxious and anti-people policies, which have pauperised the vast majority of the people.
“We sympathise with the feelings and frustration of the poor citizens of Lagos as they continually suffer trauma and hardship of all sorts under the ACN government in Lagos State.”
