The Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State has called for the Governor of the state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to be probed over the Coronavirus pandemic.
The spokesperson of the party, Taofik Gani, noted that at the end of the pandemic, the Lagos State Governor would be probed for monies received and spent on COVID-19.
Gani lamented that the relief packages being distributed in the state to cushion the stay-at-home effect was a ruse.
He further stated that some of the relief packages given to Lagosians are very bad and dehumanizing.
According to Gani: “The reliefs claimed to be going to homes and or the vulnerable are all false. Seriously hyped. Sanwo-Olu cannot feign any ignorance of this. A barrage of videos, audios, pictures abounds exposing the inhumanity of a government to her citizens by the manner and quantity of reliefs going around the state.”
“The so-called agric products and Bread are so dehumanising that we have evidence of a loaf, 3kg Rice, 3kg beans, dried pepper being distributed at a ration of a bag to 50 residents. It is so bad that donors have even raised quarrels with the state government.”
“The Governor cannot escape probe of his spendings during this scourge.”
He accused the Governor of using his constant media updates to distract Nigerians and people of the state.
He maintained that most of the governor’s remarks to the press regarding COVID-19 were lies and fake promises.
Gani said, “He is distracting with frequent media shows and telling lies and giving fake promises. Recently he said there would be free surgeries and care for all admitted, especially the pregnant. Lagosians are not excited.”
“They know its political statement. Where are the hospitals?. Where are the motivated health officers in the state?”
