Nigeria’s Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has said that President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressive Congress (APC) is embarking on game-changing projects around the country to connect the nation’s economic zones and drive economic development.
According to him, most of the signature projects of the administration, including the Lagos-Kano Standard Gauge Rail, Mambilla Hydro Plant and Second Niger Bridge, amongst others, would be completed during the second term of the Buhari administration.
Speaking during a one-day working visit to Kano State to commission some notable infrastructural projects by the Governor Abdullahi Ganduje administration on Monday, Osinbajo said that Buhari’s administration would not rest on its oars in continued implementation of game-changing infrastructure and iconic projects.
Vice President said: “One of our signature projects is the Lagos-Kano rail, which has gone now as far as Abeokuta, and we are hoping that we will be able to complete the Lagos-Kano rail in the shortest possible time.
“We expect that the infrastructure projects of the Federal Government, including the Mambilla Hydropower plant, the Second Niger Bridge and several others will be completed in our second term. We hope we are able to complete as many as possible before the end of our term.”
Harping on the position of the Federal Government in providing the necessary infrastructure to drive economic development, Osinbajo said infrastructure was central to the agenda of the Buhari administration in all sectors.
