Amaechi In New Audio Describes Lagos As 'Glorified Village'

An aide to PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has released another audio recording of Rotimi Amaechi in which Amaechi was heard describing Lagos as a “glorified village.” 

In the recording, Amaechi said there was very little infrastructure in Lagos, especially water and roads.  He was also heard talking about the interminable traffic jams in the state.

The minister’s utterances do not augur well for Lagos State that has been firmly under all the parties that have morphed to become APC.  For two decades now, Lagos has been ruled by AD, AC, and ACN which are basically APC.

The minister was also heard assailing Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and fellow minister Babatunde Raji Fashola.
