The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for governor, Olajide Adediran, has come under fire from the Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for his visit to the houses of two owners of the recently auctioned vehicles.
Adediran and his running mate, Funke Akindele, visited the residences of Lateef Kolapo and Osinachi Ndukwe, two drivers whose cars were up for sale on Thursday, according to an earlier report by Anaedoonline.ng.
Adediran criticized the state administration during the visit for selling Ndukwe’s automobile at auction after a three-month sentence for a traffic infraction.
The PDP flagbearer criticized the harshness of the punishment and pledged that his administration would repeal the traffic legislation.
Seye Oladejo, the Lagos APC spokesman, responded to this incident on Sunday by describing the visit by Jandor and Akindele as a clear promotion of the breakdown of law and order.
According to Oladejo, visiting traffic violators and encouraging them to continue their behavior is completely unacceptable in any civilized society.
He said, “Our attention has been drawn to the recent characteristic charade of the PDP governorship candidate in Lagos state, Jide Adediran.
“It’s saddening that Jandor and his deputy, Funke Akindele, have graduated from playing politics with human lives to blatantly encouraging the breakdown of law and order in our dear state.
“The visit to citizens who paid the price for violating state traffic laws, compensating, inducing, and encouraging them is an act that is totally unacceptable in any decent society. The move of Jandor amounts to turning compassion and charity on their head.
“It was pathetic that he simply interpreted the loss of his hosts as having their means of livelihood taken away from them when in actual fact, people have lost their lives to accidents as a result of driving against traffic.
“However, we are not surprised by the promotion of lawlessness by the opposition party as it remains consistent with their desperation as we count down to the next elections.
“Their role in the spread of COVID-19 with the promotion and sponsorship of needless mass gatherings – #EndSARS – during the pandemic and the social events hosted by his deputy, Funke Akindele are pointers to the lawlessness of the duo and their party.
“We expect Funke to be eternally grateful to the state governor for receiving less than a slap on her wrist for a life-threatening crime against the state.”
