The Moshood Salvador faction of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Lagos on Sunday commended the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode-led administration for his achievements in infrastructure development in the last two years.
The Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, gave the commendation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
He said that no one could shut his eyes to the achievements of the governor in the area of road construction and rehabilitation in the last two years, as Lagosians were better for it.
Mr. Gani also scored the governor high in area of traffic management, saying sanity was returning to some flashpoints through the deployment of some solutions.
He said the deployment of Close Circuit TV cameras in strategic areas and the provision of other security infrastructure by the administration to check crime were also commendable.
The Publicity Secretary, however, said the PDP would have achieved more than Mr. Ambode within the same period if its governorship aspirant in the 2015 elections, Jimi Agbaje, had been elected.
“Based on the assessment of the PDP of the administration of Gov. Ambode in the last two years, we will say he has performed above average in the area road construction and traffic management.
“Politics apart, Ambode has probably built more roads than his predecessors within the same period.
“Look at Abule Egba, he did a yeoman’s job there. He also did well with the roads in Aboru linking Abesan and all of that.
“Even, our leader, Chief Olabode George, acknowledged that he did wonderfully well in the construction of roads in Epe Area.
“And we give him kudos for effective traffic management, especially for freeing up areas like Third Mainland Bridge to Iyana -Oworo which used to be a traffic nightmare.
“And the provision of CCTV cameras in some areas and the provision of security equipment to police is another area we will commend him.
