Babatunde Fashola, former minister of power, works and housing, has claimed that the strides recorded by President Muhammadu Buhari's government could hardly be matched by any other nation.
The former Lagos state governor disclosed this during a recent interview at his office in Abuja, Channels TV reports.
“This government is doing something that I don’t think many if any nation has done before. They are building the entire infrastructure at the same time ports, airports, rail, roads, power, all simultaneously at the same time.
“Often times, what most countries do is to finish one then go to the other. And it is because we have outgrown our infrastructure as a nation. And that is why you will see the commitment of the president to projects like the second Niger bridge, the Igbodo-Ogoni bridge, the Mambilla power plant, the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, all of these is going on at the same time,” Fashola was quoted to have said.
Going further, the former minister insisted that Buhari is committed to deliver more dividends of democracy to Nigerians to justify his second term mandate that began on May 29.
