The Lagos State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has described the plan by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to procure three helicopters for security and traffic surveillance of the state as fraudulent and wasteful.


The opposition party asked the Lagos State Government to tell the people of the state what it had done with the two helicopters procured during the tenure of the immediate past governor of the state, Mr. Babatunde Fashola.

The Chairman of the PDP in Lagos State, Mr. Tunji Shelle, in an interview with PUNCH stated that the government should make judicious use of existing personnel and equipment for proper management of security and traffic in the metropolis.

Shelle, however, dismissed Ambode’s reasons for the procurement, saying the use of aircraft for surveillance where the personnel manning them lacked morale and expertise would not work.
