Lawan made the statement on Saturday, in Kwara State, where he was attending the launch of Senator Sadiq Suleiman Umar’s 2022 Empowerment Programme, which he represents in Kwara North.
The State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, was present at the occasion, which was held at the Kwara State Polytechnic.
The Senate President remarked that infrastructure projects are ongoing in practically every part of the nation, highlighting that collaboration between the states and the central government is producing outstanding results.
“Development of any nation is not about Federal government doing its best. It is about Federal Government doing its own, working in partnership with the state government and even the local government and that is what we are doing.”
“Every single project of Federal Government of Nigeria, whether it is a constituency project or direct project from the Federal government, is to complement what the state government is doing and that partnership has been so purposeful that today in every corner, in every part of Nigeria, you have infrastructural development.”
“The Federal government of President Muhammadu Buhari is in a hurry. We are in a hurry to develop Nigeria.”
“By 2023, Nigeria would have been turned into an infrastructural laboratory because every part of Nigeria, from the East to the West to the North to the South, there is something going on.”
“In the East, the second Niger bridge, today it is at 75 to 80 percent completion level. For 20 years, those people, they will go there, do groundbreaking and disappear to the ground. Another person would come, do groundbreaking and disappear to the ground.”
“President Muhammadu Buhari did only one groundbreaking and today, it is at 75 percent completion level. That is what it is, in every part of Nigeria.”
“So the synergy between our states and the Federal government is working. It is making Nigeria to develop the infrastructure that we need. We have never seen it done like this one by this administration,” Lawan said.
