We released N1.62tr for infrastructural development –Buhari

Says Nigeria ‘ll achieve 11m megawatts of power
President Muhammadu Buhari has said that in the next four years, his government would achieve additional 4000 megawatts power generation to add to the already existing 7000 megawatts.

 By this, President Buhari hints that the total power generation would stand at 11 million megawatts, which is the fastest in the history of the Nigeria State.

  At the Kano ongoing 39th Trade Fair program, President Muhammadu Buhari, who was represented by the Jigawa State Governor Abubakar Badaru, explained that the government understood the fact that without effective energy generation, there will be no required growth in the nation.

  He said, “We actively give maximum concentration to power generation in the country and that could be seen from our efforts in improving greatly from less than 2000 megawatts when we assumed office to whooping 7000 megawatts”.

  President Muhammadu Buhari noted that in the ” Next Level” agenda, Nigeria will see a tremendous progress in the infrastructural development with roads, railway and agricultural revamping.

  The President added that already, his government has released N1.62 trillion for the infrastructural development across the nooks and crannies of the country. This, he explained, will be used prudently to make heavy change in the nation.

Buhari notes that already, Nigeria is witnessing Railway revolution with every state capital targeted to be connected and fully linked.

  “We have so far completed over 220 abundant roads across the nation and added 130 new roads all across the federation which have been slated for completion in the next level”.

  Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje noted during the 39th Trade Fair with the theme “Ease of doing Business in Sustainable Economic Development,” that his government is investing heavily in security because without security, no meaningful economic and commercial activities could be achieved.

  Governor Ganduje, who commended President Buhari for ensuring peace in Kano after the gory experience of Insurgency, noted that today, the ancient city is one of the most peaceful across Nigeria and with conducive environment for business activities.

  The Kano Governor noted that after the devastating fire incidences across Kano Markets, the state government is building solar power to save the markets from the unfortunate incidents. He added that the government is complimenting the Federal Government power generation by building Challawa and Goje Dam Hydro Private Power generation.
