Fashola said he received a similar letter to the one sent by RCC from Julius Berger on June 5, 2017

According to the statement, the Julius Berger letter stated;
“It has become evident that the required adequate funding for the continuation of the project is not available. 
We trust that you will understand that, therefore, and as a consequence of the unacceptable financial risk to Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, we are left with no choice than to immediately commence suspension of the works on the project, as earlier notified.”
Fashola said the letter was co-signed by the Division Manager, Julius Berger, Mr. W. Loesser; and the Commercial Division Manager, Mr. T. Meletschus.https://ylx-4.com/fullpage.php?section=General&pub=818398&ga=a
