Governor Babatunde Fashola has accused President Goodluck Jonathan of failing to keep the promises he made to Nigerians before being elected into office.

Fashola stated this while commissioning the 2.18 Kilometer Glover Road in the Ikoyi area of the state.

“That is the difference between us, All Progressives Congress, APC, and them, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP-led Federal Government,” Fashola said.

“I have said time again, that the issues with the presidential election is not new promises by the PDP presidential candidate (Goodluck Jonathan), it is the record of service about what he has done with the promises he made in 2011,” the governor added.

Fashola also criticized Jonathan for not building the Second Niger Bridge which he had promised to construct.

“But we promised to build the Lekki-Ikoyi link Bridge in 2010 and in three years we have finished a first class architectural masterpiece which put Lagos back on the global architectural reckoning,” Fashola said.

“For our political opponents, they say it is expensive, they say every negative thing about it, but we used the same contractor, Julius Berger, to build that bridge. The same contractor has not been able to help them deliver the Second Niger Bridge that the president promised since 2011. After building that bridge I promised you that we would improve connectivity here and give commuters choice, we have finished Glover Road, we are on Second Avenue and other roads, I have kept my promises,” the governor added.

Fashola had earlier stated that the lot of Nigerians had gotten worse under Jonathan’s regime.
