Former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, has dismissed claims that President Bola Tinubu built Lagos State. His comments come in light of the economic crisis currently affecting the country.

Tinubu served as governor of Lagos from 1999 to 2007, and his supporters often credit him as the godfather of Lagos who built the city into what it is today.

However, Lamido disputes this claim, pointing out that Lagos, as the former capital before it was moved to Abuja, already had a significant federal government presence.

In an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday, June 10, 2024, Lamido stated, “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 what he cannot do. Luckily today, he is there on top of the country. He never built Lagos.”

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

He emphasized that Lagos was developed with Nigerian funds, including the port, airport, and bridges. Therefore, attributing the city’s growth solely to Tinubu is inaccurate.

Since President Tinubu took office on May 29, 2023, the country has faced setbacks due to the removal of subsidies and the floating of the naira. This has led to a sharp increase in fuel prices, cost of living, and inflation, causing widespread hardship for Nigerians.

Lamido criticized the government’s handling of these challenges, stating, “The government is doing almost everything wrong.” He also expressed concerns about the Lagos-Calabar coastal road project and the demand for a new minimum wage by organized labor.

Regarding the national minimum wage, Lamido suggested that with proper resource management and investment in projects like the Lagos-Calabar coastal road, Nigeria could afford to pay the new minimum wage as requested by labor unions.

“There is money in Nigeria. If they do it (Lagos-Calabar coastal road), they can pay any minimum wage,” the former governor concluded...ĊONTINUE.THE FULL R£ĄÐING.>’.
