Tinubu pledges commitment to infrastructural development

The Presidential candidate of the All Progressive  Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu has pledged to prioritize infrastructural development if elected as the president in the 2023 election.

Tinubu, who made this commitment on Thursday in Abuja at a Stakeholders Consultative Session with the Federation of Construction  Industry in Nigeria (FOCI), also sought the support of the federation.

The presidential candidate said from the beginning of his campaign, he had declared his commitment to furthering the developmental feats achieved by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

In his words, “The current administration’s re-energised approach to the Reviewed National Integrated Infrastructure Master Plan commits us to massive investment in infrastructure.

“This will add value to the national economy while enhancing private sector participation in infrastructure development in the country.

“God willing, as we assume the mantle of leadership, we shall build an even more prosperous economy. This means additional investment in relevant infrastructure: roads, bridges, rail, airports, schools, power facilities, hospitals and more.

“These will enhance efficiency, support industrial growth, spur trade and investment, and improve the Ease of Doing Business.

“My commitment to increase annual Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth will  heavily depend on the quality of the infrastructure, we shall build to facilitate and sustain growth in all facets of our national life.”

Tinubu urged the Federation and its employees to support his presidential ambition to make him achieve the feat.

“I will be your partner in building this life-defining infrastructure, so essential to creating the nation of our dreams. The framework on Infrastructure in our Renewed Hope action plan encapsulates, among others, the renewal and expansion of the existing stock of our national infrastructure.

“This means sound transport networks across the country, modern ports and reduced transportation costs for Nigerians. We plan to build high-capacity telecommunications networks to facilitate faster communication across a wider expanse of the national territory.

“We will promote the efficient flow of information, expand and secure pipelines for oil and gas to ensure constant energy supply and exports.

“I will also invest in adequate power generation as well as better functioning transmission and distribution systems that will light our homes and make business more competitive by achieving disruption-free production of goods and services,” he said.
