0 336

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State, Jimi Agbaje, has criticised the state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, for the delay in the presentation of the 2019 budget.

Agbaje, who said he was not surprised by the development, noted that residents in Lagos were enduring the impact for the breakdown of democracy in the ruling All Progressives Congress.

According to the governorship aspirant “The present governor has become a lame duck. We hear that approvals are now given in other quarters. When democracy collapses in a ruling party, the people bear the brunt.”

However, a government source said a lot of external forces were influencing decisions in the Ambode-led administration. It was said, “There is a lot of external interference with the affairs of government, which is why a lot of things are not working. Governor Ambode is surrounded with different interests, so he is managing contending forces and conflicting interests, as such, part of the fallout is the delay in the budget. However, it is believed that in a matter of time it will be resolved.”
