Doyin Okupe, a former aide to ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday faulted some claims by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo during the presidential debate.
Okupe rubbished Osinbajo’s claim that the peoples Democratic Party, PDP, abandoned the Lagos/Ibadan expressway for 16 years.
Describing the Vice President’s claim as false, the PDP chieftain insisted that the project was 40 percent completed when the party left power.
In a series of tweets, Okupe stressed that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has rather abandoned the project for two years.
He wrote: “Lagos/Ibadan Express was abandoned for 16yrs..Osinbajo. It was 40% completed by 2014 later abandoned for 2 years by APC
“They talk about 16 years of PDP ‘misrule’. Yet 70% of APC leadership are former PDP, now getting ready for an APC misrule in 2019. STOP THEM.”
