The party has also berated the Minister of Power, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, for celebrating a proposal to add 30 megawatts to Gurara-hydro power plant.

PDP said However Governo Ambode has improved the lot of Lagos State which Fashola abandoned.

The party also warned President Buhari against relying on what it described as Fashola’s unverified claims of achievements as minister.

This was contained in a statement the Publicity Secretary of the state PDP, Mr. Taofik Gani, issued at the weekend.

“This patriotic advice is on the heels of the minister celebrating a proposed injection of a mere 30 megawatts of power from the Gurara-hydro power plant.

“Fashola has collected monumental funding well enough to have injected over 500 megawatts into the National grid.

“Fashola rather admit failure having mismanaged the power ministry.

“Fashola caused a drop of power supply from over 6000 megawatts when he took over to now less than 2000 megawatts.

“We sincerely advise President Buhari to be very weary of the deceptive skills of Fashola.

“Fashola will usually hype and celebrate even mediocrity.

“Fashola has penchant for misrepresenting facts of his achievements in government and would always rationalize obvious inadequacies.

“As governor of Lagos State, he enjoyed unprecedented revenues and donations, yet left many services untouched or unfinished.

“He employed this model to promote his eight-year government of mediocrity.

“Fashola ended up making Lagos State be the biggest debtor with local and foreign debts well over N1trillion,” PDP said.
