The Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, is presently receiving public scrutiny after state procurement records showed he approved N7.5 million to replace liquid fragrance in his office and N3 billion to purchase rechargeable fans for the office of his deputy, Obafemi Hamzat.
These expenditures became public knowledge after Funso Doherty, the gubernatorial flag bearer for ADC in Lagos State wrote an open letter to the Lagos State government, attaching procurement records to the letter.
The ADC guber candidate took to his X handle @funsodoherty to write:
“I just wrote an open letter to the Governor on Public Procurement awards reported by LASG for the 2nd and 3rd quarters of 2023, highlighting a number of issues for further scrutiny and remedial action.
Judicious use of public funds is always important, and is especially so now.”
The attached records further showed other contracts awarded by the state’s Public Procurement Agency (PPA) in the 2nd and 3rd quarters of 2023 including approval of over N440 million for the purchase of a new Lexus LX 600 Bulletproof Sport Utility Vehicle for use in the pool of the Office of the Chief of Staff.
The office of the Chief of Staff also got N18.5 million for the supply and distribution of 2,000 Noiler chickens across the local government areas & wards in the state.
