The All Progressives Congress (APC) has berated the Gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Jide Adediran and his running mate, Funke Akindele for paying visits to,  and compensating some owners of vehicles confiscated and auctioned for driving against traffic.


The condemnation was contained in a statement on Sunday by Seye Oladejo, Lagos State APC Spokesman.

In the statement titled JANDOR’S DESPERATION IS APPALLING, Oladejo said “Our attention has been drawn to the recent characteristic charade of the PDP governorship candidate in Lagos state, Jide Adediran.


“It’s saddening that Jandor and his deputy, Funke Akindele,  have graduated from playing politics with human lives to blatantly encouraging the break down of law and order in our dear state.

“The visit to citizens who paid the price for violating state traffic laws, compensating , inducing and encouraging them is an act that’s totally unacceptable in any decent  society.

“The move of Jandor amounts to turning compassion and charity on its head.
It was pathetic that he simply interpreted the loss of his hosts to having their means of livelihood taken away from them when in actual fact, people have lost their lives to accidents as a result of driving against traffic.

“However, we are not surprised by the promotion of lawlessness by the opposition party as it remains consistent with their desperation as  we count down to the next elections.

“Their role in the spread of Covid with the  promotion and sponsorship  of  needless mass gatherings- ENDSARS- during pandemic and the social events hosted by his deputy, Funke Akindele are pointers to the lawlessness of the duo and their party.

“We expect  Funke  to be eternally grateful to the state governor for receiving less than a slap on her wrist for a life threatening crime against the state.

“There’s no doubt that good governance can only thrive where law  and order prevail.

“We recommend the recent honest admission of the former  national deputy chairman of PDP, Chief Bode George, that the opposition party has no hope of winning elections in the South West to the political neophytes so that they can put their desperation in check.

“They may wish to note that Lagosians are not fooled by their constantly playing to the gallery because they have nothing to offer.

“Our government has the political will and duty to uphold the state laws at all times without succumbing to needless blackmail in the name of irresponsible politicking.”
