The gubernatorial candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), in Lagos State, Funsho Doherty, has vowed to eradicate the activities of thugs, motor parks touts and sundry elements popularly called Agbero from the streets in the state.

Doherty, who said this yesterday, while unveiling his master plan, tagged: ‘Tiger agenda’ at a rally organised by some youths in the state, disclosed that his policies are embedded in the agenda, which comprised the tax reform for equity and growth, infrastructure for a mega city, government reform, education and health system and rule of law and public order.

He observed that the current administration in the state has continued to back the unlawful activities of the touts, which include the transport workers, especially the commercial buses, despite several complaints from the public appealing for the intervention from the government.

“This Agbero problem contributes greatly to the chaos we see on the streets of Lagos. It is important that the people understand that the Agbero problem cannot be solved under the existing ruling party because they are part of the structure that brings them to power.”

He appealed to Lagosians to vote against the All Progressives Party (APC) in the coming gubernatorial election for peace and development to take place in the state.

Doherty assured that his administration, if elected, would focus on all-inclusive governance where everyone is not taken for the granted.

He said: “Everything we are doing, is trying to create an inclusive society which is a new dimension relative to what we have seen in Lagos. Our view is that Lagos has essentially been in such a way that it has benefitted a few rather than benefitted an inclusive society that would benefit many.

“We are coming to change that paradigm to ensure that the resources of the state are managed for the benefit of the wider population.”
