The Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola has said that President Goodluck Jonathan distributed dollars to some people during his recent visit to the state.

Fashola stated this on Sunday, February 22, in response to Jonathan saying that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would free the residents of Lagos from bondage.

“I want to assume that he did not make a statement that he would deliver Lagos residents from bondage. The question to ask Mr. President is whether he had come to free them from bondage,” the governor said after inspecting some projects in the Ibeju-Lekki area of the state.

“He was here for five days meeting with different people and groups, distributing money in dollars. It is an un-presidential statement made in an act of desperation. That means he lived in bondage in five days if he had come into the state to free people,” Fashola added

“If he can live here for five days moving with patrol vehicles that we paid for, let him go and spend five days in Chibok and he will know what bondage is,” the governor said.

Fashola also said during the inspection that he had already paid for the burial vault where his remains would eventually be interred.

Jonathan had meetings with market women, Igbo traders  and members of the Yoruba Council of Elders during his visit to Lagos.
