2019: Why we want Ambode disqualified – PDP reveals

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Lagos State has called for the disqualification of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode in the coming 2019 governorship election.

The party hinged its reason on alleged violation of the Electoral Act by the governor.

The PDP frowned at the recent three million man march for Governor Ambode, insisting that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has not lifted the ban on political campaigns in the country.

In a statement by its publicity secretary, Mr Taofik Gani, the party said: “Unless INEC and Police exert their powers to guarantee credible election by at least giving their opinions on the recent three million man march for Governor Ambode, we shall deem the 2019 Lagos governorship election as already rigged for APC.”

The party also called on INEC and the Police to be unbiased, nonpartisan and assertive “as we go into the 2019 general elections by using the disqualification and needful arrests of all those who are initiators, perpetrators and intended beneficiaries of pre-election malpractice capable of also overheating the polity and provoking confrontations and violence.”

According to the party, such exercise at this period was a breach of the electoral act and elections guidelines as INEC had not declared political campaign permissible.

It stated that “we strongly believe that the exercise must have been directly induced, midwife and sponsored by the state government, using Lagos tax to overreach other persons and political parties in the 2019 elections.

“It is also laughable that an acclaimed performing governor can be so jittery of reelection that over 12 months to the contest, he is already using state funds to jump-start campaign even against the Electoral Act and good conscience.”

But reacting, the Lagos State Government through the state’s Commissioner for Home Affairs, Dr Abdul-Akeem Abdul-Lateef, said the governor would not be distracted by the opposition.

He said: “I want to assure Lagosians that Governor Ambode will not be distracted by the statement by the PDP. He will not be distracted by political Lilliputians whose current retrogression has compelled them to operate as dysfunctional silos.”
