Tinubu Accused Of Witch-Hunting Ambode Over Refusal To Release N200bn For Election

LAGOS JANUARY 31ST (NEWSRANGERS)-Tension continued to grip Lagos State on Wednesday following the plot by the State House of Assembly to impeach governor Akinwunmi Ambode, with mass protests scheduled for today (Thursday).
But the a political organisation under the aegis of Lagos Liberation Movement, haves vowed to resist the action and lose Lagos from the grip of Bourdillion and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The Convener of LLM, Comrade Mark Adebayo, expressed these feelings during a press conference in Lagos attended by the organisation’s Secretary, Comrade Lawson Babajide (Cadre) and Convener, Coalition Against Corruption and Bad Governance, (CACOBAG), Comrade Alhaji Toyin Raheem.
According to him, Ambode’s fresh trouble started because he refused to part with N200 billion for Tinubu to squander on his “political protéges running for public offices in the 2019 elections in the state and outside the state.”
The press conference was entitled: “Lagos State Assembly is becoming a political abattoir for the murder of democracy in Nigeria.”
The LLM said, “His non-compliance with the commandeering directive to make available a whopping N200 Billion by an insatiable political godfather provoked the current thoughtless backlash against the governor.
“We are watching with keen attention the whole developments surrounding the current show of shame and shall mobilise Lagosians against the governor should he succumb to the blackmail of the prebendalist political class in the state to loot the state’s treasury at their behest.
“Starting todat (Thursday), we are commencing a mass action all over the state against these forces of darkness and enemies of the people masquerading as public officers.”
Adebayo called on President Muhammadu Buhari who is the authentic leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and not the honorary one bestowed on Asiwaju Tinubu to humor – not honor – him, “to prevail on his political ally not to proceed on this path of self-destruction.”
He said, “The political situation of Lagos State has become untenably desperate and requires the immediate attention of all true Lagosians and all Yoruba sons and daughters. This is no time for fence-sitting. This is no time to claim political insulation or neutrality aka “sidonlook”.
“This is no time to play the ostrich. This is no time to allow the rulers of darkness in this state and the merchants of confusion to reign unchallenged. Rather, it is time to rein them in, and the time cannot be more auspicious than now.
“The time has come and the day has dawned for Lagosians to reject and resist en mass the bondage cast over us for the last twenty years by Bourdillon fiat and it’s deathly executioners…It is public knowledge that from two days ago members of the Lagos State Assembly commenced what is tantamount to a game of shame and senseless the results of which are predictably destructive by the ill-advised commencement of impeachment processes against the incumbent governor of the state, Governor Akinwumi Ambode. The question that most Lagosians are asking is “why?”.
