President Muhammadu Buhari says without his rail and road projects, people would be trekking from Lagos to Ibadan, the Oyo state capital. 

The president said by prioritising infrastructure projects, particularly the Lagos-Ibadan road and rail lines, hardship was reduced. 

Buhari spoke on Tuesday at the presidential villa while addressing a delegation from Kaduna state. 

“My objective was very clear, despite the dwindling resources, I wanted to deal with infrastructure across the country,” he said. 

“We should look at advancement in terms of Infrastructure. No country can advance without infrastructure. 

“The people from south-west can tell better because between Lagos and Ibadan by now, if we hadn’t done what we did, people would have been trekking because the road was not there, the rail was not there and there was so much insecurity. 

“But we thank the international community. We thank China and Chinese investors, who came along to support the Lagos-Ibadan transport projects.”
