Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said President Muhammadu Buhari will provide more infrastructure for Nigerians if he is re-elected in 2019.
Buhari is gunning for a second term in office and would be battling a former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, his major opponent, to the post.
Speaking on Tuesday in a door-to-door strategy in two Abuja suburbs of Karu and Nyanya, Osinbajo noted that Buhari is honest and would make lives easier for Nigerians.
“For the honest, decent and hardworking Nigerians, Mr. President has devoted his life to ensuring that their lives are made better even when it is sometimes not easy to do so,” Osinbajo noted.
“All of us are going higher. I want you to believe that President Muhammadu Buhari is going to do even better. We have to create more jobs for all these young people.
“We have to give our market women credit so that they can do more business; our young people money so that they can do more business.”
He added that “When he ask us to start the Trader Moni, he said, this is one way by which we can help people to start doing their own business.”
According to him, under Buhari’s watch, public funds will no longer be siphoned.
“So, I am here to say to you that the future of our country is great. All of you that are here, you are going to see a better Nigeria and that greater Nigeria can only come if the government is honest; if the government is not stealing our money,” he said.
“If the government is honest, it will build all the roads in Nigeria, for instance, like we are doing the Lagos-Kano rail and others, now.
“You can see that with little money we are doing much more because we will not agree to the stealing of our resources.
“We will go forward and we will move forward. It is a bit difficult now because we are building the foundation. When we came into office; we found no savings.
“Oil which was our biggest earnings, we had earned so much in four years but there was little to show for it.
“They didn’t build the railway, no roads. So, when we came we decided to, first of all, do the right thing.”
