This 4mb project is a misplaced priority moreover when the first term of the governor will expire in less than six months. What the state government needs to do is to buy high capacity pax boats to convey Lagos residents from point a to point b, thereby reducing the vehicular movement within the state. I’m at loss why the state will sunken in to more debt. Does the state have enough money to pay for this contract with out going a borrowing. We need to reduce the debt burden of the states and the country for the incoming generations. Giving out the contract for project will be nothing else but penny wise pound foolish policy to say the least.
