“The Buhari administration has embarked on massive rehabilitation of our decayed national infrastructure in the last five years.
“Throughout the federation, major highways are being rehabilitated and new ones built. Critical bridges are being built to link major ethnic-economic nerve centres.”
The Minister who also disclosed that President Buhari inherited a contract of over $10 billion to construct the rail project which will terminate in Calabar, said the project will commence before the end of the year.
“The President inherited a contract of $11.1 billion to construct a railway from Lagos to terminate at Calabar. So just wait, before the end of this year if you don’t see contractors solve the problem of your road.”
