Buhari, Ambode Disagree Over Eko Atlantic City

The Presidency and the Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, have disagreed over the mission of President Muhammadu Buhari at the Eko Atlantic City during his two-day working visit to the state.

The governor had earlier used his official Twitter account to say that the President went to the Eko Atlantic City to inaugurate the project.

The tweet read, “We took a tour of the Eko Atlantic City with Mr. President as he officially commissioned (sic) the project. Eko Atlantic is a good example of what Public and Private Partnership can do to the Nigerian economy.”

Reacting to this also on Twitter, the Presidency, however disagreed with Ambode, stating that Buhari only went to inspect the project.
