President Muhammadu Buhari administration’s commitment to infrastructural development can be seen from the hundreds of ongoing projects across Nigeria.
The Minister of State for Works and Housing, Abubakar Aliyu, said this in Abuja while hosting a delegation of Yobe State All Progressives Congress Social Media Forum.
He said decades of neglect by previous administrations had made Nigeria’s roads to collapse, rendering the majority of them death traps.
He said: “The priority for infrastructure by the past administration can be seen from the budgetary allocations for the sector. For instance, the previous administration has provided not more than N16bn for road projects in the 2015 budget inherited by the Buhari administration.
“Due to the commitment of the Buhari administration in overhauling the infrastructure base of the country, it has been allocating an average of N300bn to roads and bridges in the last six years.”
