Fashola explained that government did not sell the old School of Nursing at Obafemi Awolowo Way, Ikoyi contrary to insinuation. He said that those who made the allegations have not been able to provide documents to authenticate their claims.

He said that despite the allegation, his government remained focus. “They have not been able to show documents of transfers but it is their way and that is why they continue to be the problem of Nigeria but we must continue to provide the solution and I am happy that we kept our focus and today Lagos has a School of Nursing located in a specialist and general hospital in Igando”, he said.
