President Muhammadu Buhari has said his government is completing inherited projects due to his commitment to serve Nigerians.
Buhari said this on Tuesday in Abuja at the National Policy Development Summit, organised by the Office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Policy and Strategy.
He was represented by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Muhammed Bello.
“As a people-oriented government, our deepest concern is to work for you and the nation, that is why, rather than initiate new projects, we decided in the nation’s interest to continue and complete projects that are strategic which we retained,” Buhari noted.
“This decision is a total drift from what was obtainable with the past governments.
“It may interest you to note that we had to maximize the little resources left, improve our revenue base and diversify the economy to insulate Nigeria from the inherent volatility of oil prices.
“This led us to develop the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan(ERGP)which lays out the government’s strategy for achieving its vision of sustained and inclusive growth.”
