Ambode performed more than any other governor like Fashola who planted flowers alone—Bode George

A former Deputy National Chairman (South) of the Peoples
Democratic Party, Chief Olabode George, has berated a former
Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola (SAN), over the ex-
governor’s performance during his eight-year tenure.
George described Fashola, who is the incumbent Minister of
Power, Works and Housing, as failing to make a positive impact in
both his governorship and ministerial capacities.
The PDP Board of Trustees member, while commenting on
speculations of a politically motivated vendetta by Governor
Akinwunmi Ambode against his predecessor, said the success or
failure of a leader would be on the pages of history.
He said, “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 said — of the people.”
According to George, the classic definition of politics is the
management of the resources of the area for the benefit of the
He added, “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.
