The party chairman added, “After floating miserably on the Marina water for so long, the controversial Sunburn Yatch, which cost the Lagos State Government a whooping N8bn suddenly disappeared, only to be sighted at Thames in England.
The PDP chairman also criticised the attitude of the Assembly to the issue, saying it amounted to complicity. He said for the sake of morality and public good, Ikuforiji should step aside pending the determination of his trial by the EFCC.
“The ongoing trial of the Lagos State (House of Assembly) Speaker, Adeyemi Ikuforiji, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over money laundering and the attitude of the relevant bodies in the government remains a puzzle
The Lagos PDP described Governor Babatunde Fashola as insincere.
“If the governor fails to take a stand as a necessary step expected of him, then our only conclusion will be that he is actually shielding them from prosecution and this has implication for his high office,” he added.
The Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State has accused the All Progressives Congress, Babatunde Fashola of mismanagement of state resources, corruption and human rights abuse.
He added that the state needed a change in the 2015 general elections, saying that APC had nothing to offer the electorate.
“Where are the two LASG helicopters? In 2007, these helicopters were bought from the now over N120bn Lagos State Security Trust Fund, purportedly to combat crime.”
“We are very concerned about (the) governor’s indifference to this serious allegation. Now, we are calling on the governor again to speak up. Otherwise, his silence over time would mean approval of corruption.”
Shelle called on the Fashola administration and the Assembly to probe alleged corruption claims against some local government area chairmen.
Addressing PDP members at the party’s General Assembly in Lagos on Thursday, the chairman of the party in the state, Olatunji Shelle said there was a need to educate the electorate on the “incalculable damage” that had allegedly been done by the ruling APC “in various colours and guises.”
Shelle said, “We have some questions for Governor Babatunde Fashola, for which we are demanding answers. Some of these questions have been asked in the past but up till now, he is yet to respond to them. They are subsisting questions because they border onpublic trust and, indeed, his own integrity and leadership.
