Sanwo-Olu admits mistakes were made in Lagos State budgetary expenditure



The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has admitted that the state government may have made mistakes on some of the line items in the records released by the Lagos State Public Procurement Agency (LSPPA) as some of its officials have come out to show.

According to a video posted by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Gboyega Akosile, this was made known by Governor Sanwo-Olu while speaking at the commissioning of the newly built operational headquarters of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) at Ikeja.

This was his first official reaction to the outrage that greeted the procurement record of LSPPA that was recently made public.

Sanwo-Olu, who welcomed the open letter by the governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Congress (ADC) in Lagos, Funso Doherty, assured him that the government will continue to publish its spending and keep it open for public scrutiny.

The governor noted that the controversy was unnecessary, stressing that the state government had nothing to hide in its public expenditure.

Sanwo-Olu said Lagos had maintained open books for checks and balances, pointing out that the state had judiciously appropriated funds for projects and services that benefited the residents.
