The Lagos state government has defended the purchase of N440 million for the purchase of a new Lexus LX 600 Bulletproof Sport Utility Vehicle for use in the pool of the Office of Chief of Staff.

Funsho Doherty, who contested in the 2023 gubernatorial, had on Sunday raised a red flag about the purchase saying the purchase “appears excessive and is out of tune with both the prevailing economic circumstances and mood of the people”.

Responding to the development, the Lagos state government said the purchase is “in tandem with current economic realities”.
