Ambode: CSO Threatens Legislators, Demands Probe Of N28.8 Billion Running Cost

A civil rights organization, Legislative Probity and Accountability (LPA), Tuesday issued the Lagos House of Assembly five days deadline to account for the N28.8 billion running cost collected under the leadership of Mudashiru Obasa.

The organisation said if the House of Assembly failed, it would mobilise Nigerians and other progressive forces and use all legal instruments to compel them to account.

The LPA threw the challenge in a statement signed by its Chairman, Olu Fajana, ein Abuja on Tuesday.

The organisation linked the planned impeachment of governor Akinwunmi Ambode on the desperation of his adversaries to hang on him accusations that he had been funding the campaign of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Jimi Agbaje.

Fajana said, “As a legislative Probity and Accountability non-governmental organization, we are demanding that the Lagos House of Assembly should within the next five days account for how the N28.8 billion so far collected as running cost by the Obasa-led House has been expended. If they fail, we shall mobilise Nigerians of likeminds and legally compel the Assembly to do the needful.”

According to him, the adversaries had also failed to find any evidence that Ambode sponsored thugs that disrupted the All Progressives Congress governorship campaign flag-off in Ikeja a few weeks ago.
