Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos has accused the Federal Ministry of Works headed by his predecessor, Raji Fashola of frustrating his government’s plan to re-construct the Oshodi – Murtala Muhammed Airport Road.
The airport road was just one of the three major complaints of Ambode, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
He also said Fashola’s ministry has failed to hand over the Presidential Lodge in Marina to the state, six months after President Muhammadu Buhari gave the order.
His third grouse was that the Federal Government has failed to refund the N50billion that the state had spent on Federal roads, over the years.
“Lagos State is ready to take over and reconstruct the road, if given approval by the Federal Government and hit the ground running in two weeks,’’ Ambode said about the airport road.
According to him, this government sees the state of that Airport Road as a national embarrassment.
Ambode’s accusation was least expected because Fashola as governor of Lagos also registered his displeasure that the Federal Government refused to hand over the road to the state.
