    Why would Fashola create an agency then make his sister the General Manager! Where is that done, anyways this is a normal thing, Fashola also fired Tinubu’s people and put those loyal to him, every Governor must work with those he trusts and believes will help him achieve his vision. The important thing is let him and his people do a good job

    And what is the hollabaloo about sacking Fashola’s sista? BN, enof of this sensationalism. She was appointed while someone was booted out. Her tenure Finnish norni. It is this type of mentality that allows for mediocrity. Keeping people beyond their sell by date. I can’t deal.

    Wish he left the Lawma guy. That is the only agency that works round the clock, Lagos would be worse without them!
