Nigerians Can Look After Themselves When Infrastructure Is In Place – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly stated that Nigerians would be able to look after themselves when infrastructure is in place.

The President reportedly disclosed this on Thursday during his meeting with the President of Islamic Development Bank, Mohammed Al-Jasser, at the sidelines of the Paris Peace Forum in France.

According to a statement released by the special adviser to the president on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari stated that, “We are struggling very hard on infrastructure because there can’t be sustainable development without it.”

He added that, “Considering the vastness of our country, we need roads, rail, power, airports, housing, and that is what we have engaged ourselves with in the past six years. And our people are seeing the new developments. Relative to the resources available to us, we have not done badly. When infrastructure is in place, our people can look after themselves.”

While thanking the IDB president, Buhari reportedly disclosed.

“What we are so dependent on (crude oil) has lost a lot of energy. It is coming back gradually, and we are breathing a bit more with some confidence. But we expect greater cooperation from you.”
