The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has bragged that the current administration has achieved more than the United States government has achieved in terms of infrastructure.
Speaking from Kano State, Fashola noted the admadministrationinstration has constructed 941 kilometers of roads across all the states and geopolitical zones.
The Minister 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 did you last remember the Federal Government completing a 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 as 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,” Fashola added.
He said presently, there are 850 ongoing projects under his ministry, including roads and bridges construction as well as houses in 34 states of the country.
