The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Lagos State governorship candidate Olajide Adediran aka Jandor and his running mate Funke Akindele on Saturday met with Osinachi Ndukwe, one of the victims of the recently auctioned 134 cars impounded for traffic offences by the Lagos State Government.
Jandor and Funke paid Ndukwe and his mother Dorothy a visit at their home in an undisclosed area in Lagos.
According to Ndukwe, he bought the vehicle which was impounded at the rate of N1.8 million on hired purchase.
He said he was sentenced to three months imprisonment for driving against traffic and lost his three-year-old daughter during his jail term due to non-availability of funds to cater for her health.
Ndukwe and his mother were present at the auction and they bidded N450,000 for the vehicle though they did not have the money to pay.
Jandor said he and his running mate visited so they could assist Ndukwe and his family get back on their feet.
The governorship candidate tweeted, “We often wonder why we have insecurity in the state but the answers are right in front of us. How do they expect him to take care of his family?
“This is not to encourage people driving against the traffic or break the state law, but taking ones means of livelihood in the name of penalty for traffic offence is inhumane.
“What kind of government takes away the means of livelihood from its people? We can do better. The power is in our hands.”
