In a recent statement, Ayoyinka Oni, the Chairman of the African Action Congress (AAC) Lagos State chapter, has called on Nigerians to awaken and take action against the Lagos State government led by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, citing poor governance and describing the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a “Mafia group” not accountable to the people.
Oni expressed regret that people have not realized that the APC is not a political party but a “Mafia group” that lacks accountability to the citizens.
He lamented the state of decay in the APC-led Lagos administration, citing issues such as bad roads, inadequate schools without classrooms and chairs, and poor healthcare, attributing these problems to impunity in governance.
The AAC chieftain criticized the visionless leadership in Lagos, accusing those in power of being corrupt and self-serving.
He asserted that the legacy left by Bola Ahmed Tinubu has resulted in a lack of accountability and mismanagement of public funds. Oni emphasized the irresponsibility and lack of governance, pointing to the collection of taxes by individuals on the streets without proper accountability.
He highlighted the lack of responsibility at various levels of governance in Lagos, from local government to the state level, and criticized the online supporters of the APC for praising individuals addressing issues rather than addressing the problems at hand.
Oni urged Lagosians to rise up and revolt against budgets, policies, and decisions that favor greed over the people’s interests.
In his call to action, Oni urged Lagosians to occupy Alausa Secretariat, asserting that it belongs to the people and not Governor Sanwo-Olu.
He called for citizens to demand the right policies and decisions or the resignation of the governor.
This statement by the AAC leader reflects growing dissatisfaction with the governance in Lagos and a call for citizens to actively engage and demand accountability from their leaders.
The issues raised touch on various aspects of public service, including infrastructure, education, healthcare, and financial transparency.
The call to occupy Alausa Secretariat serves as a symbolic gesture urging citizens to take ownership of their collective future and demand positive change from their elected representatives.
