LAGOS — GOVERNOR Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, yesterday, described Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as amateurish party, lacking in global development and trend.

Fashola spoke against the backdrop of allegation by Publicity Secretary of PDP in the state, that  the visit of former President of the United States of America, USA, at the inauguration of Eko Atlantic City Project, as part of the State government’s propaganda.

Speaking at the commemoration of his 2,100 days in office, at Alausa, Fashola said: “I thought I have seen the worst that our political opponent here could produce. But that party seems never to be ashamed of rolling in the mud.

“I accept also that they have demonstrated a lot of amateurish and that is what is on display. They are behind global development and trend. If they follow development, they will know that former President Bill Clinton immediately after he left office launched global initiative to help provide support for environmental sustainability, waste management and others.

“Eko Atlantic City project was one of the projects that won award in New York in 2012. But because the Clinton initiative is a globally recognised organisation, it is not as dysfunctional as the PDP, Clinton was going around the world to see what was going on around the world. That was why Clinton came to Lagos to see our  project. I think that this occasion was too important for such amateurish discussion.”
