He wrote:

Meanwhile, there are reports that Gov Akinwumi Ambode’s chances to grab the APC ticket for second term may be growing dimmer by the day.

Ambode with hope of wooing all 377 councillors in the state, on Saturday invites them for a meeting. Sadly, according to Vanguard, over 350 councillors shunned the governor’s invitation ahead of the party primary scheduled for Sunday.

“We were crossed with him for spurning all the attempts we made in the past to have an audience with him and this is payback time. He refused to meet with us when we needed him, and now he wants to curry favour with us,” a councilor from Lagos West, who deliberately absent himself from it, told us on condition of anonymity.

“There are so many leakages in the Lagos State Government purse. Take this AlphaBeta; who owns this AlphaBeta? What is the essence of the AlphaBeta? Where else in the world would you have an Inland Revenue Service, who have their own staff who are supposed to go out and collect the fees, but you have an independent company to be supposedly collecting the internally generated revenue from our state?

“It grosses around N50bn (about $130m) a month and you know how much that company (AlphaBeta) is paid 15% of it, that’s N7.5bn in thirty days going to the company, that is a leakage, that is sacrilegious.”
