Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State has accused President Goodluck Jonathan of failing to fulfill his promises made to Nigerians prior to the 2011 election, saying, “that is the difference between us, All Progressives Congress, APC, and them, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP-led Federal Government.
Fashola made the remarks at the commissioning of the 2.18 Kilometer Glover Road, Ikoyi, which also had in attendance the business mogul, Otunba Subomi Balogun, Commissioner of Works and Infrastructure, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat and others dignitaries in attendance.
He said that the President has continued to come back with new promises without fulfilling the previous ones.
According to him, “I have said time again, that the issues with the presidential election is not new promises by the PDP presidential candidate (Goodluck Jonathan), it is the record of service about what he has done with the promises he made in 2011.”
The governor, noted that the President in 2011 promised to build the Second Niger Bridge but four years after, Nigerians were yet to see the bridge.
He said, “But we promised to build the Lekki-Ikoyi link Bridge in 2010 and in three years we have finished a first class architectural masterpiece which put Lagos back on the global architectural reckoning.
“For our political opponents, they say it is expensive, they say every negative thing about it, but we used the same contractor, Julius Berger, to build that bridge. The same contractor has not been able to help them deliver the Second Niger Bridge that the president promised since 2011.
