President Buhari showcases 266 completed ecological projects

President Muhammadu Buhari says a total of 266 ecological projects have been completed across the country in the last seven years (2015-2022).

The president disclosed this at the inauguration of a compendium of ecological projects undertaken by

his administration shortly before the commencement of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday in Abuja.

He said 332 ecological projects were approved during the period under review, out of which, 266 were

accomplished, while 66 are at different stages of completion.

He commended the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and the Management Team of the Ecological Project Office (EPO) for judicious use of available resources to implement approved projects, as well as the initiative for publication.

He also directed Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to showcase their performance and achievements to the public by leveraging on the benefits accruable to the government from the commendable efforts of the EPO.

In his words, “the enormity of Nigeria’s ecological problems and inherited infrastructural deficit, in general, has the tendency, like the proverbial drop in the ocean, to always drown our achievements in addressing ecological challenges and infrastructure deficit at large.

“It is against this background that publications like the one being launched today, become important and a useful tool in correcting the negative public perception that the government has not done anything in addressing these challenges.

“The documentation and publication of these achievements in our modest effort to tackle ecological problems are therefore predicated on our quest to improve communication in governance, as a tool for keeping citizens well-informed and helping them to hold government accountable.

“This is the most significant implication of the Ecological Project Office’s initiative in publishing this compendium.’’

He expressed optimism that the compendium would bridge the information and communication gap between Nigerians and the real-time performance of this administration by portraying the specific locations of projects, with pictorial evidence and proof of handing over the projects to the beneficiaries.

The president urged state and local governments to judiciously use their shares of the ecological fund strictly for ecological projects.
