You Can’t Compare Buhari’s Achievements With Biden, Says Fashola



Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Second Niger Bridge To Be Completed In 2022 - Fashola

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has rated the achievements of the Muhammadu Buhari administration above that of the Joe Biden government.

The former Lagos governor stated that President Buhari has achieved more in terms of infrastructure than his US counterpart.

Fashola made the submission on Thursday during the All Progressives Congress conversation series in Kano State.

The minister stated that as of December 2021, the Buhari government has completed 941 kilometers of roads across all states and geopolitical zones.

He added that 850 ongoing projects under his ministry including roads and bridges construction as well as houses in 34 states of the country will be completed before 2023.

He said, “I can assure you that the present APC administration of President Buhari has achieved what even the US Government is trying to do in terms of infrastructure.

“As of December 2021, we have completed 941 kilometers of roads across all states and geopolitical zones. In Kano state here, for instance, there are 21 road projects either in, around or in the neighbouring communities.

“Before APC administration, when last do you remember Federal Government completing 50 kilometer road in any part of the country?

“So, this is the positive change we promised Nigerians in 2015 and it is already happening. They say we are the same with them, but we are not. They stole money and took it abroad, but we are taking this money back and investing it in the area of infrastructure.
