Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola during the commissioning of the 2.18 Kilometer Glover Road, Ikoyi said he fulfilled all the promises he made to Lagosians during his Governorship campaign unlike the President, Goodluck Jonathan who has not kept his promises to Nigerians.
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.
Fashola reminded the people present at the commissioning about the promises Jonathan made in 2011 to build the second Niger Bridge and till date, he has not done it.
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. After building that bridge I promised you that we would improve connectivity here and give commuters choice, we have finished Glover Road, we are on Second Avenue and other roads. I have kept my promises.
Fashola said that Jonathan has clearly failed Nigerians over the last six years but wants to get re-elected on empty new promises.
