Fashola replies Ambode, says FG not frustrating Lagos

Okechukwu Nnodim, Abuja

The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babtunde Fashola, has said that his ministry is not in any way frustrating Lagos State with respect to the reconstruction of the Lagos International Airport Road from Oshodi.

Lagos State Governor, Akinwumi Ambode, had announced on Wednesday that the Federal Ministry of Works was frustrating efforts by his government to reconstruct the said road

Fashola said his ministry had approved several requests made by the Lagos State Government, adding that Ambode failed to acknowledge that he spoke with Fashola who explained ongoing processes to him.

Fashola also said that Lagos State had refused to provide land for the National Housing Programme, adding that it was important for his ministry to respond in order to ensure that members of the public were not misled by deliberate or inadvertent misrepresentation of facts.

Fashola, who spoke through his Special Adviser on Communications, Mr. Hakeem Bello, said the allegations of lack of cooperation from the works ministry and frustration of Lagos State Government’s development initiatives were simply not true, adding that the facts did not bear them out.
