THE Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to probe the activities of the Babatunde Fashola-led government, alleging massive corruption in the administration.

In a statement Sunday, state chairman of the party, Mr. Tunji Shelle noted that the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Mr. Adeyemi Ikuforiji was recently reported to have disclosed plans by the House Committees to begin probe of various ministries in the state, “but the move, we learnt has been vehemently opposed by Fashola and the leadership of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN).”

Shelle alleged that the government was only trying to hide the massive misappropriation of public funds by gagging its officials from speaking to the media.

According to him, “There is the need for the government to give statistics on projects it is handling and allow the public to have access to such information to know if its claims were true or false”.

Wondering why a progressive governor like Fashola would insist that public officers under him should not talk on issues relating to state projects as well as activities in their ministries, Shelle said, “This is a high level of hypocrisy, the stand of a state government that pretends to be open, yet was displaying the worst dictatorship in democratic setting. ”

He also wants Fashola to explain the utilisation of the over N23 billion realised from Lagos State Security Trust Fund (LSSTF) especially as insecurity is now on the rise.
