Buhari spent N2.7trn on infrastructure, highest in Nigeria’s history – Osibanjo

By Sylvanus Okpe

Vice President Yemi Osibanjo has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration spent the whopping sum of N2.7 trillion on infrastructure, saying that, “it is the highest in the history of Nigeria”.

The Vice President stated this while commissioning the 2.5 kilometers Aminu Alhassan-Dantata bridge in Kano State on Monday, the VP said Mr Buhari’s administration placed high priority to infrastructural development in the country.

While commending Governor Abdullahi Ganduje for recording giant strides in infrastructural development, Mr Osibanjo, noted that, “if other states would do similar projects, there would be speedy and even infrastructural development in Nigeria”.

“This bridge will surely facilitate free movement, especially for business purposes as it neighbors popular Sabon Gari commodity market,” Mr Osibanjo said.

In his remark earlier, Governor Ganduje said the idea behind the construction of the bridge was to decongest the area, which houses the state’s biggest Juma’at Mosque in the state.

According to him, the flyover project was abandoned at 25 percent completion stage by the immediate past administration.

“When we came on board, we had to pay the sum of N500 million for the contractor to accept to continue with the project,” Mr Ganduje disclosed.

“This place, where this flyover was situated is the heart of Kano town is highly populous area. The gridlock here is alarming.

“This is because of the location of the biggest market in Nigeria. That is why we decided to construct the bridge to ease movement.

“Your Excellency, this bridge was abandoned at 25 percent completion stage, but, looking at the importance of the project, when we came on board, we decided to complete it.

“We had to pay the sum of N500 million to the contractor to agree to continue with the project,” Mr Ganduje stressed.
