2015: APC, PDP in fresh battle for Lagos

The head of the task force, Abdulrazaq Rafiu, said the task force would not be intimidated by the threats of the APC. Rafiu described the APC as a group of bad politicians, adding that instead of the state government to commend the Federal Government for employing Lagosians, it was playing politics. He said, “Yes, they (task force) were at the rally but they were not there for the PDP. They went to maintain order just like every other civil agency like the police, FRSC and NSCDC. The APC has plundered all the resources of Lagos State and there is a high rate of unemployment in the state. Unemployment leads to crime and the Federal Government then decided to help out by creating jobs for the youths but the APC state government is not mindful of this fact.“The APC are jittery because of the Ekiti loss. I was a member of the APC before but I left because of the bad people in the party. The task force’s area of responsibility is limited to Federal Government roads and they are not disturbing anybody and yet they were arrested and harassed by the state government. If the APC tries anything funny for a second time, we are ready for them. The last time that the task force officials were arrested, they willingly gave themselves in because the police were involved and our people respected the police. But if the APC wants to try it again, they will not find it easy.” (Punch)[eap_ad_3]
