The handing over of the Presidential Lodge at Marina in Lagos state which was approved by President Muhammadu Buhari since last November was effected yesterday, August 17 by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Federal and Lagos state officials.
This occured after Governor Ambode of Lagos state had accused the Minister of Works, Babatunde Fashola who happens to be his predecessor of frustrating the handover process.
