Buhari, Ambode clash over Eko Atlantic City



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


Governor Ambode said in his official Twitter handle that the President went there 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. ”

However , Twitter went wild with many users pointing out that it was former President Goodluck Jonathan who in company with the then Governor, Babatunde Fashola , and former United States President, Bill Clinton , that inaugurated the project in 2013 .


The pictures of Jonathan inaugurating the project were also shared multiple times on the micro- blogging site .
In his response on Twitter, however , Buhari disagreed with Ambode , insisting that he only went to inspect the project .


Using the handle , @ NGRPresident , he said, “ The President did not commission ( sic) or launch Eko Atlantic City. His visit was a tour as part of a two -day offical visit to Lagos State and the plaque he unveiled was to commemorate his visit to the site . ”
