With the general elections few days away the Executive Chairman of Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders (CACOL), Mr. Debo Adeniran, has threatened to raise a seven million-man march against Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola and the All Progressives Party (APC), if he refuses to give a detailed account of the state’s income and expenditure from 2007 to 2011, before the election day.

Adeniran said that the march would commence this week.

“CACOL will from this week raise seven million people from all walks of life to demonstrate against the financial recklessness and impropriety of Governor Fashola. He should give account of how he has been spending the state’s money to the people who elected him into power and failure to do this before next week, we shall take to the streets.”

Addressing the press in Lagos, Adeniran said concerned citizens, groups and organisations in the state had at various occasions called on the state government to do so, but the governor refused.

He said a petition had been sent by CACOL to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) requesting it to investigate the Lagos State Government but regretted that the agency ignored it.

The CACOL boss, who said he was apolitical, called on the Lagos State House of Assembly to probe Fashola and his predecessor, Bola Tinubu, on the issues raised about Alpha Beta Consultancy.
