Ambode has been criticised by Lagosians for the failure to address the security challenges in the state.

The party stated that those that are criticising Ambode are enemies of Lagos adding that the governor is working hard to stop some pockets of insecurity in the state contrary to what his critics want people to believe.

This disclosure was contained in a statement by the APC mouthpiece in the state, Joe Igbokwe on Thursday, November 5. The party said that Ambode is working hard to consolidate on the gains of his predecessors.

Igbokwe said: “Leaders’ hands are always heavy and Governor Ambode needs the support and encouragement of every Lagosian, irrespective of tribe, ethnicity, colour, culture and background to do his job.

“Lagos has carried the burden of bad and irresponsible leadership at the centre in the past 16 years and the huge human and vehicular traffic we see in Lagos today is part of the bigger responsibility and challenge to anybody privileged to be the governor of Lagos State. Let us support the governor to succeed.”

The party said that Ambode’s effort towards routing out criminals from various dark spots in the state is yielding fruit and that there will be light at the end of the tunnel.

The APC statement read in part:  “Traffic gridlock has always a reoccurring decimal in Lagos even in the 1970s and we remember that former Governor Babatunde Fashola had cause to post pictures of the traffic situations in the past and the comments of leaders then just to prove that the problem did not start today.

"But this is not an excuse to run away from the problem as Governor Ambode is addressing the traffic situation and its attendant consequences head-on.

“The governor has his hands firmly on the plough and is committed to his dream of taking Lagos to a new level, despite the gloomy economic prospects in Nigeria. He has not lowered the high standards of governance in Lagos despite the antics of his political foes and he is building on the rich legacy he inherited.”

Meanwhile, the president of the Oodua Peoples’ Congress Reformed, Comrade Dare Adesope has stated that an ordinary policeman cannot face Boko Haram members.

He urged all Nigerians to be security conscious and make efforts to report strangers within their neighbourhood to the appropriate authorities.
