PDP Publicity Secretary, Mr Taofik Gani released a statement on this issue.
The statement reads:
“The governor is also asked to make public in the media, the details of the handover notes and assets of the past governor, Mr. Babatinde Fashola.”
“The deliberate neglect will however compel us and other well-meaning Lagosians to explore the relevance of the Freedom of Information Act on the matter.
“The PDP posits that the necessity for the present governor of Lagos state to make public his present assets is more ignited by the huge foreign and local debts of nearly a trillion naira now left behind by the past governor who has been linked to many personal bank accounts and property within and outside the country.
“Mr Ambode is under compelling moral duty to tell Lagosians what he presently has as assets. This is a spice to the requirement of asset declaration before the Code of Conduct Bureau. He must also not conceal the assets declaration of his predecessor,”
Gani said if Ambode refused to take up this challenge, he will be tagged as “Governor Pretender” throughout his tenure.
