Fashola, who said this during the All Progressives Congress campaign rally in the Epe area of the state, added that corruption and diversion of public funds had retarded the nation’s economic growth and transformation.

He said, “Rather than develop strategies that would improve the economy, the current administration inflicted pains on the citizens.

“The Burj Khalifa building in Dubai was built with $1.5bn to arrest the attention of the world. This administration has lost $20bn. The money lost by the current administration could be used to build 10 of the structure.

“We are the only oil producing country that is importing oil products. They spent over N2tn to import petrol.”
