Fashola Spent N139million On Two Boreholes - Lagos Government by erunz(m): 12:55am On Aug 24, 2015
The immediate past Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, spent N139m on the drilling of two boreholes at the Lagos House, Ikeja.

The project was completed by Deux Projects Limited according to a report published by the state government

The report, which was part of the awarded contracts by the Lagos State Tenders Board in 2013, was seen on the website of the Lagos State Public Procurement Agency.

In the same year, N640m was spent by the Fashola administration for the reconstruction of a car park and other associated works at the Lagos House, Marina. The report stated that the N640m contract was given to Julius Berger Plc as part of phase two of the reconstruction of Lagos House where Fashola lived during his eight years in government.

In the same year, N300m was spent on the relocation of cables belonging to the Power Holding Company of Nigeria at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital. The contract was awarded to Deux Projects Limited.

According to the report, the former governor also spent N175m to replace the railings of a pedestrian bridge on Carter Bridge from Ido to Idumota with concrete railings. The contract was awarded to A Abicon Engineering Limited.

According to the report, N220m was spent on the facility management of the Lagos State University College of Medicine. The contract was awarded to Deux Projects Limited.

The former governor, according to the report, spent N619m on surface repair on Ajara-Erekiti-Iragon-Ikoga Road in Badagry Local Government.

According to the report, Fashola spent N1.2bn on the construction of an unidentified multi-storey building in Onikan, Lagos.

The former governor was also said to have spent N1.6bn on the construction of a 48-bedroom hotel at Lagos State VIP Chalets, Badagry.

About N510m was spent on the remodelling and equipping of the official residence of the state’s Chief Judge at 4 Thompson Avenue, Ikoyi, Lagos, according to the report.

About N165m was spent on the construction of an 18-classroom block at Ajara Senior Grammar School, Ajara Badagry. The same amount was also spent on an 18-block classroom at Community Senior/Junior Secondary School, Bayeku, Ikorodu.

Fashola had recently come under fire for spending N78.3m of taxpayers’ money on his website, tundefashola.com.

Although the figures were published on the official website of the state government, the former governor said all the monies were duly approved by the Lagos State House of Assembly and the Lagos State Public Procurement Agency.

Fashola, in a six-page letter, stated that the website of the state government was authentic.

He, however, warned against attempt by some persons to tarnish his good image and misrepresent his budgetary spending to the members of the public.

All attempts to speak with Fashola’s spokesperson, Hakeem Bello, proved abortive as he did not pick calls neither did he respond to a text message sent to his telephone.

BAT, why are you doing this to the best governor in the history of Nigeria?

If not for your pressure, BRF was not ready to be compromised. {The True Face of Lagos}

It's becoming a free for all so if Fashola has any dirt he should spill. I know Naija sha, all these ones na just IGG. They know where they meet and soon all of these will be swept under the carpet. It just shows that all dem politicians are rabid thieves from top to bottom. Anyone prepared to clean up has to go all d way, not embark on selective cleaning.

Buhari wants to give Fashola the Lagos State ministerial slot but Tinubu wants another person other than Fashola so he has to throw mud on Fashola so that Buhari will abandon him. The question is who will bring Tinubu to justice? Regardless, both Fashola and Amaechi are highly corrupt. When I was calling fashola a fraud on this forum many thought I was hating or being tribal

Ironically, the said project was awarded to Deux Project Limited a company managed by Kayode Olatunji Olowolafe who is fronting for both BAT & BRF.

When you fight God's chosen people! God fights back for them.

Look at how the lagos yoruba leaders are fighting themselves dirty. They same people that threatened a whole tribe before the election. I wonder on who's side the oba of lagos will stand now. Is he on Tinubu's side or Fashola's side? This fight is sure God's fight for his people.

This is just the beginning.

We've always known Fashola was a common thief.
Build 1 borehole steal millions.
Build 1 school steal millions.
Plant flowers steal millions.
Build website steal millions.

He always play to the gallery. Always rolling with 350 camera men and 7 TV stations to spread lies and propaganda grin. Unfortunately the lid is blown open.

Next is Oshiomole, the man with the diarrhoea mouth that has not carried out any notable project in Edo state for years. God nor dey sleep!

Angel Tundefashola.com at it again. Nawaoo. This man is a big thief oo. The incident where he disgraced an army general for using the brf lane comes to my mind, one would think he's a saint. To think we were considering this thief for vice president, chai. Very soon now he will release a media statement and all u will be hearing is "unfettered access or adopted children" without addressing the issue on ground.‎ If he were in north Korea I trust dat my guy would have executed him long ago
Jesus, the more I think about this I feel like crying. No wonder we ain't gettin anywhere as a nation. So a borehole costs more than building a house now abi. If u quote such amount for a borehole, how much would u quote for a building?

I read the part that says the projects were completed and I swallowed back my venom.

Fashola, no doubt, is a thief but a smart one. Another smart thief is Akpabio but God will continue to punish people like Theodore Orji, even after their reincarnations, for abandoning projects and devouring the funds meant for them. angry

Fashola is not being accused of anything. It is surprising that on one hand some of us call for transparency and accountability in government and yet turn around to call it a witch-hunt. These projects are all approved and completed, hence there is no reason why LASG tenders board shouldn't put them on its website. It is left for those who see anything fishy to come out with their proof, rather than trying to set the former governor against his successor.

Before you blame Tinubu or Ambode, it was Fashola himself who gave the directive that contracts bidded, awarded and excuted be published on the website.

Fashola you should not go down for that scatter mouth Tinubu. He gained everything and your going to be the fall guy that gets blamed for all the squandered monies. You sold the Governors lodge and many state properties and gained nothing. You gave a cronie millions for a personal website and gained just a mediocre site with a tarnished image. Now all your dirty deals are about to be exposed and Tinubu will be laughing in London while the chickens ynash is exposed by the wind called Tinubus media Conglamorate. You still have a chance to expose your Godfather before you are made a permenat member of the Hall of Shame.

They can not accuse him of anything because they know he did not steal anything or did anything wrong, this is cowardly and smear tactics just to rubbish his image.

All they can do is and have been doing is Fashola spent this, Fashola spent that, but when are they going to get to Fashola stole this and that.?

These are cowards and scumbags especially the new Orobo governor and errand boy...

You don't get it. The so called report according to Punch, is a public document loaded on the website of the LASG procurement agency and there are several awarded and completed contracts on it. The report says its for 2013, so it may have been loaded on the website during Fashola's administration. They are duly awarded and completed projects. It is the media that is feasting on it now after the discovery of the website by BudgetIt.
