Tinubu, Solomon, Ashafa Are Failed Lawmakers, Says Akele

National General Secretary of the National Conscience Party (NCP), Ayodele Akele, has described the performances of the three senators representing Lagos State in the National Assembly as abysmal, saying they have failed to give Lagosians value for their votes.

In a chat this morning, Akele, a governorship candidate of NCP in 2011, said the trio of Oluremi Tinubu, Ganiyu Solomon and Gbenga Ashafa are mere bench warmers who are only interested in the largesse they are receiving as lawmakers.

Akele also took up the incumbent Lagos Deputy Governor, Adejoke Orelope- Adefulire, over her alleged senatorial ambition, saying she has nothing to offer Lagosians in the National Assembly.

“Somebody can’t just go to the Senate without antecedents. What is Tinubu’s wife antecedent, what is Ashafa’s antecedent? What are his records in the public service?

“When I was fighting for minimum wage, and I was illegally removed from service, Ashafa was there and never spoke against it. What is the antecedent of Ganiyu Solomon? I wanted to contest against Solomon and I know I will defeat him but we don’t have the resources”.

“I can see now that every Tom, Dick and Harry is collecting nomination form to go to Senate under All Progressives Congress (APC). APC and other political parties should be held responsible if this democracy is derailed,” he stated.

    This is such a pathetic rant from an individual contesting in the 2015 guber elections. I am disappointed at Ayodele Akele’s feeble analysis of these three senators.

    And just for record purposes, these three senators have good records. To even insinuate that they have no antecedents is laughable and condemnable at the same time.

    Sincerely I am highly flabbergasted with the analysis of Mr Ayodele Akele, I doubt if you ever googled about these three senators at all before addressing an interview with this blogger, I know you never did, because u would have seen lots of bills and motions sponsored by these lawmakers and their constituency projects sponsored in their various senatorial districts as expected as a responsible and responsive lawmakers. To even make it glaring that you are talking out of ‘bad belle’ you are attacking their personalities. It’s really a shame that you can’t do your research well before concluding wrongly. What these lawmakers have done is visible even to the blind to see and audible enough to the deaf to hear. Please always read papers daily for updates on their activities.
