….Tasks Her To Demand Open Government From @AkinwunmiAmbode Led @APCNigeria Government.
THE leading opposition political party in Lagos State, Action Democratic Party (ADP), has expressed joy and welcome the UK Prime Minister, Ms. Theresa May to Lagos over her brief scheduled visit to the State.
The party in a statement by its Lagos State Spokesman, Prince Adelaja Adeoye laud the UK Prime Minister for finding Lagos worthy amongst Nigerian States to be visited during her brief tour to Nigeria and other African countries.

Ms May is on a trade mission in an attempt to bolster Britain’s post-Brexit fortunes. This is her first visit to Africa since she became prime minister in 2016.

She will be accompanied by a 30-man business delegation as part of her efforts to “deepen and strengthen” partnerships around the world as the UK prepares to leave the European Union (EU) next year.

ADP said, it was a welcome idea for Nigeria and UK to strengthen their trade and development ties, praising Theresa May for recognizing Lagos State as one of the leading investment destinations in the continent of Africa.
The party also praised UK government for signing an agreement with Nigeria on how to improve Security and economy, stressing that such will further strengthens the relationship between the two countries and also create millions of jobs for our youths.
The party has however called on the UK Prime Minister Theresa May, to use the opportunity of her visit to the state to join other stakeholders who have been demanding for transparency in the governance and adminairative activities of Lagos State government led by Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode.
ADP alleged that since over the years, the budget of the state has been shrouded in “Secrecy” with the public always demanding to know the break down. The party said democracy cannot thrive without accountability and transparency in government.
The party also said that, one of the set back hampering the socio economic and political developments in Africa is corruption and lack of transparency in governance, where government shows no accountability for holding people’s mandate on trust.
ADP said one of its cardinal points in its quest for real developmental stride in Lagos is to field a competent candidate for governorship seat and other elective positions, to stop the anyhowness currently being practiced by the APC led government in the State to give way for economic and political prosperity and advancement of the State.
