Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN) yesterday advised President Goodluck Jonathan not to expect getting votes from residents of the State during the March 28 election on the ground that, “at our time of needs, he did not respond to our pleas.”
The Governor stated this at the All Progressives Congress, APC governorship rally at the Ifako-Ijaiye Mini-stadium, Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government Area of the State that was attended by the party’s governorship candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode among other dignitaries.
Fashola claimed that the President only remembered residents of Lagos few weeks ago when he visited the state and spent five days, holding meetings and distributing different hard currencies to people.In his words, “For four years, the President didn’t respond to the needs of residents of Lagos. This is not about where he comes from but it is about the quality of job that he had done for the residents of Lagos. The only time the President started working was few weeks to election.“The president can come to Lagos because it is part of his constituency. “But we will not vote for him in the forthcoming election. This was because when we needed him, he didn’t come to our rescue.
