- Babatunde Raji Fashola, immediate past Governor of Lagos State
For a while now, there have been serious corruption & abuse-of-office allegations levied against the immediate past Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Raji Fashola. These have been prominent in major newspapers & online social media sites.
We pressed on the former Lagos State Governor for an official response & our wishes have been granted finally. See his response below:
Apt response, I must confess. But a sticking point still remains the N78mln website contract. Whether it's an upgrade or a full-scale development with a suite of maintenance services, the jury is still out on the reasonableness or otherwise of the amount involved. I am not an IT or web development expert, so I am not qualified to comment with technical precision on whether or not the amount involved leaves a smoking gun. I will leave the experts to comment on that...
So, over to you. What do you think about BFR's response?
