Tinubu will sustain tempo on infrastructure development — Buhari

PRESIDENT Mohammed Buhari says the President-elect Bola Tinubu will sustain his administration’s commitment to infrastructural development in the country.

He said this while delivering an address virtually on Friday, May 26, to commission four federal government projects.

The four projects are the Nigerian Navy Logistics College Dawakin Tofa, a 3000-capacity ultramodern correctional centre, the New International Terminal Building of Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano, as well as the procurement of aircraft, equipment and buildings at the College of Aviation Technology Zaria, Kaduna State.

Speaking on the handover scheduled for Monday, May 29, Buhari said Tinubu will work to improve the availability of infrastructure across the country, as he has done.

He expressed confidence in the President-elect and assured Nigerians that the incoming administration will sustain his tempo of growth and development in Nigeria.

“I am pleased to now commission the Nigerian Navy Logistic College Dawakin Tofa, Kano state, 3000-capacity, the Ultramodern Correctional Centre, Kano, new airport terminal of the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano and Aircraft Equipments and buildings at the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology Zaria Kaduna state.

“The four projects that were commissioned today are critical at this time; I have no doubt that the incoming government, which is also progressive, will sustain the tempo of improvement,” he said.



    Buhari is set to vacate the Aso Presidential Villa on Monday and hand over to President-elect Bola Tinubu.

    The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate had been declared the winner of the February 25 presidential election, polling 8,794,726 votes.

    According to the Independent Electoral Commission, Tinubu had over 25 per cent of the votes cast in 30 states, more than the 24 states constitutionally required.

    INEC said Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) came second in the election with 6,984,520 votes. While Labour Party candidate Peter Obi came third with 6,101,533 votes.
