He told everyone at the retreat, including the Keynote Speaker and former President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, that more than 3,800 kilometers of roads had been built across the country.

Buhari revealed that new aircraft were acquired for the Nigerian Air Force to boost the fight against insurgency.

On infrastructure, the President said, “Because we know how important critical infrastructure is to economic growth and because we want to leave a lasting legacy, we have implemented high-impact projects all over the country that meet the needs and hopes of Nigerians.

“Some of the most important things that have been done are the completion of the 326-kilometer rail line from Itakpe to Ajaokuta to Warri, as well as the 156.5-kilometer Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge railway modernization project, which has been extended to Lagos Port, Apapa.”

On road projects, this Administration has built 408Km of roads, made 2,499Km of SUKUK roads, and kept up 15,961Km of roads across the country.
