“Kano-Katsina dual highway was awarded three years ago by the last administration. They didn’t pay a kobo for its start-up. President Buhari just paid money for the first tranche of 75 kilometers and work has begun apace.”
Shehu spoke further saying that the President Buhari administration decided to hasten projects related to infrastructure in order to pump money into the economy and ultimately rescue it from recession.
He disclosed that N750 billion has been released for capital projects in the last five months and added that counterpart funds for the take-off of the $11 billion Kano-Lagos rail project had been paid.
“Without infrastructure, the country will not witness growth,” he said.
Shehu said the government of President Muhammadu Buhari was speeding up ongoing projects and investing heavily in the construction and repairs of highways, railways and power generating plants across the country.
