The Lagos State Government has eliminated the list of contracts awarded under the regime of former Governor Babatunde Fashola.

The list which was published on the website of the state's Public Procurement Agency, www.lagosppa.gov.ng, stated that Fashola's administration spent N78.3m on his personal website, www.tundefashola.com, in 2014.

Section which lists all the contracts awarded under Fashola's administration between 2013 and 2014 could not be accessed.

According to Fashola, the website is aimed at enhancing transparency, efficiency, accountability and value for money in the area of public procurement and asset disposal through the enactment of the Public Procurement Law, 2011, and the establishment of the requisite agency.

The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, Mr. Habib Aruna, said he was not aware that the details of the executed contracts under Fashola had been removed from the website.

He, however, promised to investigate the matter.
Calls but across to reach Fashola's spokesperson, Hakeem Bello, seems abortive.
