South Energyx Nigeria, the developers of Eko Atlantic City, have debunked claims that the immediate past governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, owns a skyscraper in their project.
South Energyx Nigeria issued a statement on Monday to debunk as false an editorial titled ‘Ambode’s Many Sins against Lagosians (Part 1)’.
The statement reads in part:
“We would like to clarify that this report is completely false as Ambode has no ownership or links to any skyscrapers in Eko Atlantic City.
“We can also confirm that we were never contacted to confirm the claims before the article was published.”
Allegations also say Ambode used state funds to buy houses in highbrow areas of the Lagos State.
