Has Fashola Really Done Anything In Lagos State?

Let's be sincere, Fashola has done nothing in Lagos. His priority is misplaced he is planting flowers [yet] the drainages are blocked, the roads are bad.

Take a look at what he is doing at the end of Falomo Bridge - Glover Leaf Park but yet the road beside was flooded yesterday.

Fashola has done nothing to me; he should fix our roads. What do you guys think?

Actually,to my own few in Lagos State,he has tried his best,becos there are some areas that i can believe that it will be like that forever but BRF has transformed all the places into Lagos Mega City,lets talk about Transportation,he also tried which allow sufficient vehicles for the people plying to their various destination,the level of traffic has reduced especially third mainland bridge and some other areas within Lagos,lets talk about environment,BRF has done a great job in beautification of some areas in Lagos such as OSHODI,ISLAND etc.BRF has done a great job,but what is paining me so much is job opportunity is not circulating at all,i graduated since 2007,finished my service year 2009 February,up to now i havent got a single job and i submitted Lagos State form for 2 times no result,why why re u doing this to we graduate and i was told that if you are not a politician or know somebody,it will be hard,but everybody can't be a politician,this year again i have downloaded another form now and this will the third time how i my going to do about it.I read URBAN AND REGIONAL PLANNING From THE POLYTECHNIC IBADAN,am pleading to you all to assist me,i will grateful if my comment is granted.expecting a smile from u ,THANK YOU

Lagos problems did not start in one day, infact not in one decade, so wont take a day to fix.

I think the guy is trying and he has done well so far, however, we all need to do our part as well.

There is still a lot of work to be done in Lagos, however, i blv the dude has started from where he knows best, so let us hope the changes will continue and they will learn how to maintain changes.

he should create a Ministry to see to the ailing problem of small biz rather than taxed everyone and go about with Forces to collect such taxes,business are suffering due to power and other facilities. The Finance to spent on those flowers can surely establish vocational centers ,ICT training centers for Graduates and under graduates,Millions and I mean it Millions are spent on those flowers. What is the Multiplier effects: Job creation for the contractors and labourers<short term> if a man is building his house ,I dont think he will start from planting flowers,there are should be stages in life. Nigerians are always carried away because of past Military mentality. This people are custodian and they need to account for every kobo made from grants,allocations,Internal generated revenue, What is the correlation of all the revenues to expenditures. Now they wanted to ban street trading or they are banning street trading, which of those on the streets are happy selling in the sun,what measures is the Government creating to assist micro business that forms 70% of the total economy?Wealth of Nation is measure by the people,not by the street lights,even beautiful people have HIV/AIDS. Lagos exterior can be beautiful ,but what about the make up{the people}. What is the Human Capital Development in place to motivate workers? Who are the major beneficiaries of all these contracts? Develop the people ! You Develop the nation ! Nobody {sane person} prefer to sell in the sun. Sick of this Nation jo !

fashola shouldn't be criticised about few problems that are still abound in Lagos. he has revealed himself as a man who is ready to take the mantle of leadership. what then do you make of the ruling party(PDP) and it's leaders who are having misplaced priorities. he obviously can't solve all the problems at once. abi!!!

PLS WHAT WE CALL ROAD CONSTRUCTION BY FASHOLA IS SIMPLY RESURFACING AND ADDING BRT LANES, E.G., JIBOWU-YABA-OYINGBO, NOTHING CHANGED. IF YOU WANT TO SEE ROAD CONSTRUCTION, GO AND SEE WHAT NGIGE DID WITHOUT MUCH HYPE IN ANAMBRA STATE. MARWA DID SAME FOR LAGOS WITH LESSER INCOME AND WITHOUT IMPOSING ALL KINDS OF TAXES AND LEVIES. TODAY YOU PAY LAND USE CHARGE AND TENEMENT RATE TO STATE AND LOCAL GOVTS. (DOUBLE TAXATION). THE MAN IS DOING NOTHING BUT ENLARGING THEIR PURSES AT OUR DETRIMENT WITH HUGE TAXES

On the issue of not compensating people,thats a lie and at the same time true.So you expect him to compensate those who have illegal buildings?

The government just dosent demolish peoples building just like that,some buildings have been demolished to pave way for more and more roads,railway and they get compensated,check the news and its there.

whether people hate it or not,he is the best governor in Naija,At the beginning of this thread people were showing pictures of Newyork,Las vegas e.t.c and say thats what should be done.Then support GOV FASH and remeber the EKo atlantic city which already much of the reeclamation work has already been done,when completed in about 5 years Lagos will be the best city in africa and one of the best cities in the world.

Many has been singing the praise of this guy and i am sure Nigerians dont sing for nothing, infact, for him to have used the solar panel to power the street lights, that makes him a good nigerian with brain and not those fools with pot belly.

So i think he has done a good job so far, but there are rooms for improvement

Haa whats d point, why not just pull the whole of Lagos down, plan it redesign it and rebuild it. Whats the point of patchy patchy. Ive seen the so called drainage work and Its not going to cut it. Whats worth doing is worth doing well.

We need better drainage systems in Lagos and I mean advanced systems with clearable sewers and waste (affluence) processing plants.

If those buildings are blocking road expansion plan or drainage part and you have fake documents, they should be brought down without government compensation. There was a law before fashola got there, he did not just create the law.

How do you know that all the buildings he is pulling down are dangerous? I am talking about decent buildings without proper paper work. How would you like it if say 5 years ago you built property and you made the necessary applications, papers did not come out, you bribed some officials which is the norm to hurry things up and they end up giving you dodgy papers. You dont know they are dodgy, as far as you are concerned you have done the right things. Soon a government pulls down your house because there is no record of your property and your papers are fake. Tell me is that the solution.

Fashola is really trying for Lagos and there is a lot of cosmetic changes going on. He only has 2 years left in government, he has to win the next election and the one after that b4 he can reallly pull of this rebuild of Lagos State properly. Nigeria has a nasty maintenance culture, a single year under another government and all the good work will be eroded. He needs to put a lot of departments into place to strengthen the foundations of his changes but do they even have foundations.

I see where you're coming from, unfortunately, your reasoning is a little misguided, lagos is full of suspect buildings and lagosians die needlessly via collapsed buildings. LSG/Fashola's primary responsibility is to serve and protect lagosians, demolishing suspect and poorly constructed buildings sounds better than tons of dead innocents lagosians.

I would like to add that Fashola is trying but its really sad to say that it is not original. Its a bit like Idiagbon and after Fashola leaves office, people will only remember him for the negative things like the destruction of legitimate property etc.

Why destroy people's homes, I can understand if a house is blocking a road or built on a canal but to destroy ones home just because the paper work is not up to scratch in a country like Nigeria is just wanton rogue destruction. Not many people in Nigeria build huge houses without going through the proper procedure, we are not talking about shacks here we are talking about solid houses. Records for these houses were probably lost or erased and the result is demolition.

I am very much for the Egbe omo Oduwa, Let us break away from a hash government system. The problem with government is that it is too distant from the people. Governors take silly ideas from the western world, ideas that have been hundreds of years in the making, ideas that have been tweaked and reviewed then they want to try and impose those ideas here and it just cannot work.

There is no humanity in the way decisions are made by government. With Egbe omo Oduwa, people will sit down and discuss with the various cheifs and bale's and proper humane decisions can be made about how to go further.

Sincerely,I dont want to say anything again on Fashola until next month when I arrive Europe on an academic break.You would be pleasantly surprised to learn about the sponsor and what I went through to get the sponsorship.I am being sponsored by a humble man who believes so much in turning around lives through education.The same man some of you are castigating.Some months back,he said Without education there wont be skills.without skills,there wont be jobs.without jobs,there wont be income.without income,there wont be poverty eradication.More gists on this would come in the newspapers and this thread.

What i will advise Fashola is to get some holiday and dedicate it to tutorials. Over-ambition dey worry am!!

He really needs to get some lesson from Asiwaju!!!!

His priority is completely misplaced, How can you be planting flowers in an environment where only u n your surrogates appreciate it? where people around are hungry? where there isnt an aggressive development? where structures are dead? where people need employment?

What lagos needs is massive development. Follow the legacies of Asiwaju, Respect your followers and never let them feel the absence of Asiwaju, Treat people well around you,

Think about alternative power supply for the state not flowers, let local govts take care of their bad roads, simple stuffs like that will change d standard of living of lagosians not flowers bros.

webdezzi , you are a fraud. Same person going about using different name. I can see why you want fraud to continue in Nigeria.

That funny, can you tell me which school did you go to? Like I said humbly I am better educated than your Governor. I do not want to sound been proud.  Look I do not want to bring anyone down, please verify his record and mine. And apart from that do you know what it takes to have even just an ordinary first degree in electrical engineering. Only smart people with more than an average IQ have degrees in electrical engineering. Please verify this fact before you reply. If you have average IQ, you can not finish a degree in Electrical engineering. Please verify this information. Average IQ is not accepted.

Even getting into the university. I had A's in maths, additional maths, statistics, physics and chemistry, do you want me to continue before i was given admission to do my first degree in electrical engineering at the university of Ilorin. From my primary days to secondary days. I started representing my school in debate and science competition from primary school.  How many dumb people do that. I got in on merit and  finished university on merit and went to school again abroad.

So  do you still think i am dumb. Now which degree did you major in, do not run away like your doctor  that claim he had PHD. I would not reply you again. They say foolish people rule over dumb people. I could see now it is true.

Nigeria1, i am going to repeat what i told you earlier in this thread, (even before Dr Kitaun came in)

YOU NEED TO CONSIDER GOING BACK TO SCHOOL AND STUDYING THE ART OF MAKING PEOPLE LAUGH

even while at school, you wont pass for a class captain.

the earlier these guys realize they need to ignore you, the better for them.

Dr Kitaun, what is ilk, that is not english. Dr Kitaun. Why do you start a statement with a small letter?. Do "educated people" do that?  you can't even speak english.

Look at your statement   """amma call u later in the morning hopefully, had too long a day and was off my phone for most of the day . . . .""""'  So this is english,  Which university give you degree self for nigeria,  I go die O. And you are special adviser to the governor.

I go die O, look at another  ""'' we all have seen how BRF has been working round the clock to make sure the health sector is up and working ?"""  Mr PHD holder,  It is up and running. English Agege bread.

I go die, look at another ""' arent we all happy that the operations of the omo oniles have been drastically reduced ?""" Mr PHD holder if you want to speak Ijebu, speak Ijebu.

I  go die  look at another one  ""' TODAY IS ONE OF THE HIGHEST AND MOST WIDELY RESPECTED SPORTS PERSONALITIES"""'  Mr PHD holder, correction sir. "Today he is one of the higest and most widely"

 

Look at this statement  "2nd assignment is; what determines seeing one online at different times ?"  My brother , why do you transpose Yoruba to english.

If you want to speak Yoruba we allow you. I understand.

Dr Kitaun , my son speak better english. Do you want to call him. If you claim you are a doctor. Doctor what, Is it a Phd, if it is a PHD . I want to know. ,  I am sorry but I am busy. If you want to chat, come into the chat room at http://.com I am waiting for you. bye.

This Yoruba govt structure is the only way to save the Yoruba nation now. In the Month of May 2008, federal allocation to all yoruba state including Kwara with a population of 40 million got N14,560 billion  while river state which population if you like at the satellite picture is less than Ondo or ogun state got more money N15,097Billion .  how do we develop in an environment were we are cheated. I forgot. The 19 northern state got less than the 6 south south state. Igbo state of the

south east got 10,431 compare that to balyesa state with very very few people of N8,055Billion which is 1/10 of the population. we need to ask ourself the right question , are we going the right way.

If we continue at this rate every northerner would become uneducated. We need to allow state to collect vat , education, PTF and 0ther tax

dlox01 --I am not a negative person in life. And honestly I do not want to get into negative mind set with you. I do not want to put fashola down. It is not my business to do it. The real issue in lagos is not fashola, but the people of Lagos. You look like you are more interested in fashola, good for you. But my concern is the people of Lagos. I have my worry , what type of school their children go to.

I can't sleep knowing what they are going through, I can't knowing what yorubas are going through and nigerian as a whole,  I want the best for you people.  i was welfare office in one of the  redeemed church, so people welfare is what i am all about.

If you claim you want to introduce fashola to me. I am an open person. You can call me 1416 904 5008, I love to listen and share ideas. An just a note, I do not know fashola through 3 rd, my children have a heritage that goes back to the first paliament in western nigeria . So I do have an understand and I have more than 5 contact who have direct access with him. Senoir member of his party. If fashola have engineering contract and feel my company is worth given, that would be nice. but like i have listed. He as to caught up before 2011, if not I would run. That is not a joke. A member of the family was deputy governor. I do have access to fashola if i want. but if you want to introduce , feel free.  Same for the president , if I push myself. One of the president adviser spent 1 whole hour trying to get me to come back to Nigeria. May be I would get a toll free number and Nigerian abroad can call for free and talk live with Nigerian leader. I would try and do that.

My concept of what i dream of lagos is deep and the passion is there , I am not sure if fashola have the same passion that you claim. I can only talk about mine. but I am open to listen to him. I have nothing against fashola. I have ideas beyoud your dream how to change lagos. And i still keep my bird in my pocket.

corruption is your problem and not mine, We have good and bad, its up to you to decide which one you want

I have all it takes to hack into bank's networks, websites, send spoofed emails to get people's bank login details, yet i decided to focus on how to use that knowledge towards securing my client's website and apps

Let me tell you one thing in this life, you are free to choose which path you want to thread, people may not be able to stop you

its a free world but that does not mean we should blame everything on the government when we started it ourselves

Now ask yourself, who dumped those refuse?

Just because you started an argument does not mean you must keep it up even when you know you are making very little sense.

Now, you know what you should do, give yourself 3 dirty slaps and same this 10 times
