The current governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode had earlier released a statement that the former governor of the state and now Minister of Works,Power and Housing Mr. Babatunde Fashola is frustrating the plans of the state to reconstruct the Lagos International Airport Road from Oshodi.
The Minister who reacted to this claim through his Special Adviser on Communications, Mr. Hakeem Bello, struck out the statement, describing it as misleading while pointing out projects they have approved for the Lagos State Government.
He further stated that as far as the International Airport Road is concerned, the Lagos State Government presented a request for four roads that it would wish to take over. The reason for the alleged frustration is that the Federal Executive Council has not yet reached a definite decision as it requested the input of other State Governments affected.
The on-going disagreement between Lagos State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode and his predecessor, Babatunde Fashola over the matter is a hot topic as both names are trending on social media right now.
Nigerians have since weighed in on the matter sharing their opinions. Read a few below;
