Prof. Osinbajo allegedly said the APC Government paid $2 Billion, 2 days back, for the 2nd Niger Bridge. He said this at the APC Anambra Guber rally.
“In fact, I am being reminded that just two days ago, the Sovereign Wealth Fund paid $2 billion for that same project. So we will definitely see our second Niger Bridge. We will not make promises we cannot keep.” ~ Prof. Osinbajo (Sahara Reporters)
$2 Billion is about N700 Billion Naira. The 2nd Niger Bridge was awarded at N130 Billion Naira.
(1) Are they also building a 3rd and 4th Niger Bridge in the imaginary?
(2) The SWF, a creation of the last administration (which most of his party men fought against), is a $1 Billion fund. So, how did they magically pay out $2 Billion from a $1 Billion fund?
(3) Is this the good old campaign sophistry, or an innocent Freudian slip or simply the result of hanging out with “Lai” for too long?
