POLITICS: Lagos Governor Fashola Accuses PRESIDENT Of Diverting SURE-P Money


Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, yesterday, accused the Federal Government of diverting Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme, SURE-P, money for the funding of the campaigns of President Gooodluck Jonathan. Fashola made the allegation at the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign rally in Badagry area of the state. The governor, who took a swipe at the Federal Government for disappointing Nigerians, added: “The money they took for Sure-P is in Sure Pocket, that’s what Sure-P means.
It has nothing to do with the people.”

He accused the Federal Government of non-challant attitude, stressing that at a time they ought to have been committed to serving the people. “They were busy doing TAN rallies. They started the campaign one year ago , they were doing Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN) rallies instead of serving you.

“They were spending Sure-P money in TAN. If they had used that money to build health centres, highways and prosper your life, the story will be different,’’ Fashola said.

“The person that is campaigning one year ago is now saying no, let us postpone the elections. The game has changed. He has to defend his record. There is no longer sympathy votes. Six years ago, he had no shoes, he has shoes now and we see what he has done with the shoes. He has forgotten the people who voted for him.”

Fashola explained that all over the world, when cities and states build municipal rails the Federal Government support them. “It is only in Nigeria that the Jonathan led government failed to support states that embarked on rail projects,” he stated.

This I agree with fully. That programme has been a waste. Scratch that. Its been an enrichment programme. The ecological funds weren't released to most opposition states too. As at mid last year, Lagos and Benin didn't get theirs. Don't know now if they have but I doubt it also Delta state spent theirs by keeping it in the pockets.
