Contrary to the claims of Mr. Jimi Agbaje, PDP Governorship candidate that Lagos State is under any kind of bondage, Senator Solomon Adeola (APC,Lagos West) and chairman Senate Committee on Local Content, has stated that Lagos State has stood up to and freed itself from the failed PDP system that has impoverished the nation and all states controlled by the PDP in the last 16 years of our nascent democracy.

Reacting to the news of Mr. Agbaje’s position  that  he is set to free Lagos from bondage and ‘godfatherism’,  Senator Adeola in a statement  Agbaje’s PDP for the 16 years of their rule in Nigeria did everything to undermine the interest of Lagos State and all Lagosians in its futile bid to capture Lagos State from progressive minded politicians stressing that any Lagosian voting for PDP in 2019 want to reverse the progressive hand of the clock that has been the lot of the state since 1999 and working for interests inimical to the interest of Lagos State.
The records are there that over the years of our nascent democracy since 1999, the PDP led administrations of Agbaje has done everything to undermine Lagos State. We had the debilitating and illegal withholding of Local Government allocations for several months, the deliberate and wicked abandonment of Federal Government critical infrastructures located in Lagos State causing untold hardship for Lagosians and the blocking of any kind of assistance to Lagos state in view of its status as a former Federal Capital Territory and economic nerve centre of the nation” he stated.

Senator Adeola stated that the freedom in Lagos State under successive progressive administrations has ensured that Lagos State is second to no other state in Nigeria in terms of addressing developmental challenges of a mega city adding that no PDP state in Nigeria can rival Lagos State in terms of positive and impactful human and infrastructural development in the last 20 years.
“The master plan put in place under the Asiwaju Bola Tinubu administration has been faithfully implemented by the successive Fashola and Ambode administrations with no comparable rival so far in all the PDP governed state. The quantum leap of the IGR of Lagos State from about N14 billion in 1999 to over N34 billion per annum as of today has no equal in the loot prone PDP states over the same period and neither is there any developments in those states comparable to what the Lagos Government has done to address developmental challenges of a mega city” Adeola stated.
The senator stated that Lagos State will continue in its forward ever movement in the path of progress as a model for other states to copy in Nigeria stressing that it is for other states to join the progressive Lagos State to move to the next level and not regress into the failed system of PDP that has been tried elsewhere and at the federal level for 16 year.

“Instead of claims of bondage and godfatherism, I think that Asiwaju Tinubu that is the butt of attacks should be commended for progressive development in Lagos State that is spreading to some other states and finally berthed at the Federal level. Patriotic Lagosians and Nigerians should say NO to some elements desirous of Nigeria going back to ‘Egypt’ after exiting and progressing towards the promise land” he stated.
