Minister of Power Babatunde Fashola

Ex-Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola performed poorly in office, according to a former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Olabode George.

George said Fashola has not made any impact in his role as Minister of Power, Works and Housing.

He told Punch: “Who asked him (Ambode) to do that? Now, people are putting him on the wire that whatever Fashola’s legacy is — I don’t know what legacy that one left behind anyway.

“Okay, he did Surulere; where else? He was planting flowers. Where is the Bus Rapid Transit (by Fashola’s government) now?

“Now, look at it from there: you are governor; what are you doing to impact? Something that will alleviate the poverty — or the ‘suffer, suffer’ like Fela would said — of the people.”

Furthermore, he said: “Now, he (Fashola) can’t go back and start saying, ‘I want to go and correct this.’ It’s over.

“And if you compare him with (Ambode) and I am not saying he (Ambode) is a saint or that he hasn’t made certain mistakes, but as a Lagosian, I can see (his performance) if you go from location A to location B.”
