Legal icon, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, has accused the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of abandoning governance after the emergence of Bola Tinubu as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria said this in a statement on Saturday titled, ‘Sanwo-Olu and governance in recess.’
Adegboruwa, who was one of the members of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS-Related Abuses, warned the governor on spending the state’s resources on Tinubu’s campaign.
He said, “The rainy season in Lagos is always a bitter experience for Lagosians in flooding, heavy traffic and other casualties, but the governor has not been on his seat to address issues related to this. Crime has been on the increase in Lagos lately.
“No doubt state resources will be involved in these campaign activities and most government officials will cash in on the absence of the Governor to also abandon their responsibilities, either to pursue their political other business interests.
“There are many more grave consequences attendant upon the decision of the Governor to abdicate his constitutional responsibilities in pursuit of the political ambition of the APC presidential flag bearer.
“From all the foregoing, I do hereby appeal to Governor Sanwo-olu to return to Lagos and assume his constitutional responsibilities of functional governance. His Excellency was not elected as Campaign Manager of politicians but as an administrator.”
