The former vice president had criticised the contract as hurriedly awarded and executed against the country’s procurement laws.

In a statement by his Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, Atiku, who berated the federal government, however, advised Tinubu to focus more on attracting real investors than adopting propaganda as a state policy.

Afrobeats Musician Seun Kuti, Son of Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikolapo Kuti, has endorsed the controversial construction; of the Lagos- Calabar Coastal Highway.
