Lagos APC defends Fashola over misappropriation of funds

The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has defended the immediate past governor of the state, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN), over an allegation that he misappropriated public funds.

The party described the contracts awarded by Fashola while in office as a reflection of his love for quality jobs.

The party’s State Publicity Secretary, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, asked the public to stop castigating Fashola for the amount of money he spent on execution of projects while on office.

He described the recent criticisms trailing the contracts awarded by the former governor as the handiwork of the opposition.

Igbokwe said, “Fashola is not a hut builder. So, he built a bridge for N29bn? You can decide to build a bridge for N5bn. Anybody who is interested in standards can build a bridge for N100bn.

“There are grades for everything; it depends on the way you want to look at it. It shows Fashola believes in standards.”

A report on the website of the Lagos State Public Procurement Agency had stated that Fashola spent N139bn on two boreholes at the Lagos House; N175m to replace the railings of a pedestrian bridge on Carter Bridge from Ido to Idumota with concrete railings and N1.2bn on the construction of an unidentified multi-storey building in Onikan, Lagos.
