The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed said this on Tuesday that the security challenges facing the country are ephemeral and will not define the legacy of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The minister stated this in Abuja at the presentation of a documentary showcasing the achievements of Buhari’s administration.
“I want to state emphatically that while more attention has been given, especially in recent times to the security challenges facing our country; those challenges are fleeting and will not define the legacy of President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to him, President Buhari’s legacy is assured, and will be defined by his massive achievements in office. Such as the roads, rails, bridges, mass housing, port development, improvement in power supply and other massive infrastructural development that will last for generations to come and which would help propel economic growth and national development.
He noted that never in the history of the country had any administration done so much with so little like Buhari’s government.
The achievements of the administration which were detailed in the documentary covered roads, rail, housing, power, aviation and agriculture, ports, bridges, health, fight against Covid-19, water resources and the economy generally.
He listed some of the projects by the Buhari government completed and ongoing to include, Lagos-Ibadan and Apapa-Oworonsoki expressways, Enugu-Port Harcourt and Abuja-Abaji-Lokoja dualisation.
Others were Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria and Kano-Maiduguri expressways dualisation, Suleja-Minna highway, Milliken Hill Ngwo as well as Bonny-Bodo road.
