Senator Lawan, who spoke at the 5th edition of the Senator Olamilekan Solomon Lagos West Senatorial District’s Town Hall meeting and Empowerment programme, said that the All Progressives Congress, APC, had no option but to borrow money for the development of infrastructure because money for projects disappeared during PDP administration.

He said:

“PDP will tell you that something is funny about APC administration at the national level. But they (PDP) ruled Nigeria for about 16 years and all they did was to leave or bequeath so many challenges for us in 2015.

On why the Federal Government will continue to take loans for infrastructure, he said the APC administration has been working since 2015 to clean up PDP's mess.

Lawan affirmed:

“When someone will tell you that the APC administration only take loans or borrow money, but the same people had 16 years of so many resources and you did very little infrastructure in the country, the money disappeared."
