President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday said his administration had proved it was committed to fulfilling its promises to Nigerians.
The President made this remark during his inauguration of the Abuja Light Rail System.
Buhari said, “Today, what we have in the Federal Capital Territory is another evidence that we are a government that delivers on its promises.
”I have observed keenly other milestones that this administration has achieved, especially in the areas of education, public utilities and infrastructure development.
“I am very pleased to be here today to formally commission the Abuja Light Rail System. The completion of this very important project is a dream come true.”
The Nigerian leader said it was also an evidence that the ruling All progressives Congress (APC) was keeping with the ideals of the Change Agenda.
He revealed that what they have on the ground were coaches meant to provide skeletal services as they await the main set of the rolling stock for full operations.
Buhari said he had been briefed on the outcome of the recent visit of the FCT and Finance ministers, Muhammed Bello and Kemi Adeosun, to China.
The minister, during their visit to Beijing, signed the MoUs and agreements for the procurements of the main rolling stock.
“Let me place on record the Nigerian Government’s appreciation to the Government of China and the EXIM Bank of China for their support on this and many other projects currently being executed in the country,” Buhari added.
