Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, General Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, faulted claims by the Federal Government of revamping the Nigerian Railways, saying “despite the noise made, there was nothing on ground.”
According to the Vanguard, General Buhari made the remarks when the APC Presidential team took advantage of the presidential rally in the state to pay a courtesy visit to Akiolu in his palace at Lagos Island of the state.
Buhari said: “A lot of noise is being made about Nigerian Railways, but there is nothing on ground. Kabiyesi, these are some of the problems—insecurity, economy imbalance and corruption—identified by the APC.
“These problems have virtually denied Nigeria the opportunity to improve other social services like education and healthcare.”
Buhari continued, “Infrastructure is another structure that helps to bring industries back that will create employment. And if elected, we will complete the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to Ilorin.
“The monies we realised from anti-corruption campaign will be adequately used to improve education in the country. “One of the legacies we can leave for this generation is good education, if that is done most people will look after themselves.”
