Tinubu Never Built Lagos, I Know His Capacity—Sule Lamido

A former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, has said that Bola Tinubu didn’t develop Lagos State.

He further faulted his government at the federal level for its inability to get things right.

He said this on Monday’s edition of Channels Television’s Politics Today. 

Tinubu served as the governor of Nigeria’s economic capital from 1999 to 2007. Some of his supporters credit him for laying the foundation for a modern Lagos State.

But Lamido who is a member of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says Lagos being a former Nigerian capital before it was moved to Abuja enjoyed huge Federal Government presence.

“I know him when he was under SDP; when he was the secretary of the party. I also knew him as governor of Lagos State. I know him very well and I know his capacity, I know what he can do; I know he cannot do. Luckily today, he is there on top of the country. He never built Lagos,”

“Lagos was built by Nigerian money-  I mean the port, the airport, the bridges.  So, when you say Tinubu built Lagos; he never built Lagos.”

“The government is doing almost everything wrong,” he said on the current affairs show, faulting the Lagos-Calabar coastal road project amid the clamour for a new minimum wage by organised labour.

According to him, if the government can embark on the project and with prudent management of resources, Nigeria can easily pay a new minimum wage as demanded by labour leaders.

“There is money in Nigeria. If they do it [Lagos-Calabar coastal road], they can pay any minimum wage,” the former governor insisted.
