Lagos PDP Wants Sanwo-Olu to Form Cabinet, Demands Explaination on Why He’s Taking so Long
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Lagos State, has asked Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu to explain to Lagosians why it has taken him so long to inaugurate a cabinet for the administration of the state.
While Gbadamosi said he does not envy the governor over the delay because of certain interests he must put into consideration, PDP said it is imperative of Sanwo-Olu to explain why it has taken him so long to inaugurate a cabinet for the state.Spokesman of PDP, Mr. Taofik Gani, said Sanwo-Olu is not coordinated hence the apparent stagnation in the governance of the state coupled with alleged cases of funds embezzlement, mismanagement, and misappropriation.
“This is unpardonable and results of the aberration adopted by the Governor to govern the state without a cabinet, thus acting as sole administrator. The unwarranted delay has further vindicated our stance that Governor Sanwo-Olu was hurriedly brought on stage to be governor and not a prepared governor for the job.
However, Deputy Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, lashed at PDP, saying it is apparently bereft of something better to do, therefore feigning impatience. He said his boss would appoint highly qualified and competent personalities into the cabinet.
He stressed: “There is the need to remind PDP that the 1999 Constitution is very clear about the issue of cabinet. There is nowhere in the constitution where a time frame is stipulated for a governor on the composition of cabinet. The PDP needs to also be reminded that the governor had said it countless times during the electioneering that he would put in place a high quality cabinet composed of tested men and women who will join him to drive his vision of delivering a greater Lagos to all the citizens of the state.”
