Jonathan in another tiff with Fashola

15 August 2014, 14:03

Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to the claim by Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola, that his administration has been inactive in the last three years.

Jonathan dismissed Fashola’s claims as deliberate misinformation, reports NewsDay.

Speaking through his Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, Jonathan said Fashola might have been too occupied in Lagos to see and appreciate the lofty developments his administration has carried in the country.
