The Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwanu Akiolu, has said that all those who are accusing President Goodluck Jonathan of corruption are the fathers of corruption. The Oba was speaking in his palace when President Goodluck Jonathan led a delegation of PDP officials to receive his blessings just before the flag-off of the presidential campaign in Lagos State.
Oba Akiolu raised issues of corruption with a mention of the
Harliburton scandal and the killing of former Attorney-
General, Chief Bola Ige but prayed that in the end only the
best candidate would emerge in the 2015 general elections.
In his speech, President Goodluck Jonathan thanked the Oba
for supporting his administration.
He described Lagos as the commercial nerve centre of
Nigeria that should be of importance to any well meaning
politician and which needs the right persons to govern.
President Jonathan said that his administration has much to
show in the area of transportation, agriculture, road
construction and wondered why anyone would say that his
administration had not performed.
He also wondered why anyone would say he was not fighting
corruption, claiming that statistics would soon debunk the
lies being told by his critics.
He promised to do more when voted into power.
The Chairman of the party, Adamu Muazu, also assured the
traditional ruler that the PDP means well for the country and
that was why there has been tremendous development and
progress going on in the country.
The traditional ruler said that he had prayed for the
and gave an assurance that he would continue to pray for a
peaceful conduct of the elections and continuous peace
beyond the election.
President Jonathan was also accompanied by the Vice
President, Namadi Sambo; the Senate President, David
Mark; some former and serving governors as well as the
Minister of the Federal Capital.
