The President, Muhammadu Buhari, has said that Nigerians would be able to look after themselves when infrastructure is in place.

Buhari said 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.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, made this known in a statement titled, ‘When Infrastructure is in Place, Our People can Look after Themselves, President Buhari Tells IDB President.’

According to the statement, Buhari stated that his administration was committed to an infrastructure renaissance for Nigeria due to sustainability.

“We are struggling very hard on infrastructure because there can’t be sustainable development without it,” the President was quoted as saying.

He continued, “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.”
