The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, on Monday, said his counterpart in the All Progressives Congress (APC) was not responsible for the development in Lagos State.

Naija News reports that the former Vice President stated this at the PDP presidential rally at the Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos on Monday.

Atiku asserted that the Federal Government of Nigeria developed Lagos due to its status as the former nation’s capital and the country’s economic nerve center.

Addressing a crowd of supporters, the PDP flagbearer said the ruling party lied that Tinubu developed the state after the nation’s return to democracy in 1999.

He said, “The Alliance for Democracy (AD), the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), and the All Progressives Congress governments in Lagos have been telling you lies that they developed Lagos, they did not develop Lagos at all, na lie; they are lying to you.

“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.”
