Ahead of the much-anticipated Lagos state governor election, ruthless officials at the Lagos State Transportation Administration (LASTMA) have shed the toga of impunity for the robe of repentance.
Uneasy about the possibility of power changing hands in the state after the ruling All Progressives Congress lost the presidential election to Labor in the state and with many voters determined to oust the ruling party, officials have pleaded to the residents of the mall of the country to forgive the agency for mistreating them over the years.
In a video recording, some agency officials were filmed dancing to the tune of a song “Ayo Orjan Laja, Ani Aba Se Ko Farjin Wa”, which means “Whoever we have offended, please forgive us.”
Excuse me.” At the event, the officers, seen in uniform and others in casual attire, bowed in a sign of pleading for mercy.
Some civil servants in Lagos accused them of being threatened with losing their jobs if they did not elect a new governor.
However, Gboyega Akosile, media aide to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, debunked the news on his social media page.
Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress will contest the Lagos governorship on March 18 along with Labor Party’s Gbadebo Rhodes-Wiwor, Africa Democratic Congress’s Funso Doherty and People’s Democratic Party’s Abdulaziz Adiran, along with 11 others.
