Governor Ambode Is Fulfilling His Campaign Promises - PDP

The Lagos state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos state on his 53rd birthday.

The party said the Lagos state Governor is doing a good job, adding that he is making sure his campaign promises are fulfilled.

The PDP also commended Ambode for using his birthday celebration to raise funds for the treatment of cancer patients.

The spokesman of the PDP in Lagos state, Gani Taofik said “The PDP opines that the governor has attempted to justify his election.

“Observing these attempts, such as in the area of road rehabilitation with pedestrian bridge construction, we will give the governor the benefit of the doubt that he is serious about serving the general interest and not parochial or APC interest as his predecessor did.

“We will keep a tab on his governance and commend or condemn same as applicable. In this period of his birthday celebration, we want to commend him and hope that he sees this assessment as a challenge for him to perform better.”

Taofik also added that “The PDP wishes the governor good health, sound mind and, above all, the fear of God necessary for him to be responsive, productive and just to all. Happy birthday and many happy returns.

“More disturbing to us is that the governor’s lowest point at this time is his neglect to conduct election into the local government councils. This is long overdue. He should allow the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission to announce the election date this week to serve as his birthday gift to Lagosians.”

Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode turned 53 on Tuesday, June 14, 2016.

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
