The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2023 general elections, Atiku Abubakar, at the presidential campaign at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos, on Monday, slammed the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, for the lie at Chatham House, London, United Kingdom (UK), on the development of Lagos, saying that the Federal Government of Nigeria developed the Lagos, not Tinubu.
Atiku stated that APC lied in claiming that Tinubu built Lagos after the return to democracy in 1999.
Atiku urged residents of lagos State to take their destinies in their hands and should not return APC to power at the federal and state levels, warning that “a single family has ruled the state for 23 years”.
Atiku narrated: “53 years ago when I came to Lagos in 1969, there was only one Carter Bridge built by the Europeans, no Second Mainland Bridge, no Third Mainland Bridge, no Tafawa Balewa Square, that was when I came to Lagos, all of you were not born then.
“Now, I want to tell you, this is a fact, you can go and check: the Federal Government built the Second Mainland Bridge, the Federal Government rebuilt the Old Carter Bridge, the Federal Government built the Third Mainland Bridge, rebuilt Agege Motor Road, rebuilt Ikorodu Road, all the major roads connecting Island and Mainland.”
Atiku further declared: “The AD, ACN and APC governments have been telling you lies that they developed Lagos, they did not develop Lagos at all, na lie; they are lying to you.
“Therefore, it is time for you, the people of Lagos to liberate yourselves from a family’s government to a people’s government that is going to be led by Jandor.”
