Past Government Responsible For Nigeria’s Infrastructural Deficit – Buhari


President Buhari, Again, Blamed the PDP led Administration of 1999 to 2014 for the infrastructural challenge facing the country.

According to him, it is sad that infrastructure went to rot completely within the same period when Nigeria has ‘humongous resources’ at its disposal between 1999 and 2014.

“Our focus now is on infrastructure; roads, rail, power, and others,” said the President who received the outgoing British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright, in a farewell audience at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

He added, “How I wish we had fixed all those when we had money. What we earned between 1999 and 2014 is on record, but nothing was done to infrastructure.

“Now, we are doing a lot more, with a lot less resources. And we shall continue to do our best.”

President Buhari commended the outgoing High Commissioner for his warm and pleasant disposition, which he said has seen him traversing almost the entire country.

“I always see you all over the place,” the President was quoted as saying in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina.

Arkwright, who spent more than three years in Nigeria, said he visited 30 of the 36 states and found the people quite enterprising and engaging.

He added that the British government would be glad to offer a helping hand as required in any part of the country.
