The APC vice presidential candidate appreciated Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for conceiving the idea of the Eko Atlantic City.
“The NBA conference was held in Eko Hotels. It was largely funded by the Lagos State Government, the APC government of Lagos State. Subsequently, they moved to Eko Atlantic city, a product of an idea conceived by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” he said.
