…Advises YouthsTo Shun Violence, Vandalism Of Public Property
National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has blamed poor leadership abilities as the reason why immediate past governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode,was not supported for a second term as Lagos State governor.
Tinubu, speaking at the inauguration of the newly completed Pen Cinema Flyover, said that Ambode’s administration was leading Lagos State in the wrong direction, and couldn’t be allowed to continue that way, as he was heading in the wrong direction.
The former governor further disclosed that Ambode’s drift from the vision for Lagos State became noticeable between 2017 and 2018.
The Pen Cinema flyover was started by the Ambode administration, but completed by the Babajide Sanwo-Olu administration.
The Jagaban of Borgu added that the errors noticed by political leaders in the state are what led to the decision to jettison Ambode and bring Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Obafemi Hamzat, on board.
Tinubu added that though they were not sure of what the performance of Sanwo-Olu and Hamzat would be, he added that the two leaders have so far proven their worth, despite the prevailing challenges.
Commending the Sanwo-Olu administration for steering the state back in the right direction, Tinubu described him and his team as “great performers and doers.”
Meanwhile, Tinubu has also warned the youths against the destruction of properties and infrastructure in the state.
Recall that some hoodlums had during the #EndSARS protest, attacked and set ablaze two media organizations, Television Continental, TVC, and The Nation Newspapers, reportedly owned by the former governor.
Tinubu urged youths to shun violence and embrace dialogue when communicating their grievances to the government.
He said, “Don’t copy vagabonds and those who are into thuggery. There is no development if there is no peace. We must encourage peace. The government will ensure that you get the right education. Education is an investment in your future.
“Destruction and disruption will not help you to reach the destination you desire to reach. We will support your aspirations, but help the state, ensure peace in our state and country.”
