JANDOR Flays Sanwo-Olu’s Salary Increment

LAGOS – The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Dr. Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran (JANDOR), has described the salary increment announced by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for workers as a gift with intention to trick, saying the desperation of the All Progressives Congress (APC) government to retain power in the state is disturbing.

Sanwo-Olu announced the increment last Tuesday while meeting with civil servants of the Lagos State Public Service, during his working visit to the State Secretariat, Alausa.

He said the planned increment was informed by the level of inflation in the country, which had been biting hard on the citizens.

But, in a statement signed by Head, Media and Communications, JANDOR4Governor Campaign Organisation, Gbenga Ogunleye, Jandor said the governor has agreed that the APC government has failed Nigeria by confirming the harsh state of the nation’s economy and its untoward effects on the government’s workers.

He, however, urged the state government to effect the salary increase from June 2022 and then pay three-month arrears to the workers to ease the crunchy effect of the harsh economy.

Jandor stated that his consistent calls on the incumbent government to apply human face and empathy in the execution of state policies are in the interest of the residents of the state, who are at the receiving end of bad governance and abysmal failure of the APC-led government at the federal and state levels.

He said the ruling party is jittery about the rising popularity of the PDP and his advocacy efforts to plead the cause of all Lagosians and offer them some levels of comfort as they endure the remaining days of the APC-led government.

Jandor charged the state government to be alive to its primary responsibility of providing security and welfare for the people.

He berated the Sanwo Olu-led administration for deliberately waiting till the eve of the election and when Lagos residents cry out in pain before taking action.

The PDP guber candidate mentioned the ongoing review of the state traffic law and renovation of some roads in the state, which were only attended to after his advocacy efforts.

JANDOR promised Lagosians that Lagos PDP would continue to put the government on its toes as an efficiently credible opposition party and the government in waiting.
