President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, said insecurity and infrastructure better under his watch compared to how it was in 1999 till 2015.
Buhari spoke during the stakeholders’ meeting held at the Imo State Government House in Owerri, the state capital, after inaugurating the Owerri-Orlu Road, the phase one of the Owerri-Okigwe Road, and the State House of Assembly complex rebuilt by the administration of the state governor, Hope Uzodimma.
He commended Uzodinma for the feat, adding that other states in the country would get support regardless of political party affiliation.
The President lauded his regime for neutralising Boko Haram terrorists in the North-East and tackling infrastructural decay which he said he inherited from the Peoples Movement Party administration in 2015.
Buhari said, “My administration is addressing infrastructure and security in Nigeria when compared with what we used to have from 1999 till 2015 when we took over.”
On Uzodimma, Buhari said, “Governor Uzodimma is doing well in Imo State. He is doing well with limited resources. The roads which I have just inaugurated will stimulate local economy in the state.
“I commend Governor Uzodinma for rebuilding the House of Assembly Complex. The Federal Government will continue to support the Imo State Government. This support is also available to other states of Federation irrespective of political party affiliation.”
In his address, Uzodinma said that the roads Buhari inaugurated were abandoned by previous administrations for decades.
The governor, who boasted that his administration had constructed 105 roads in less than three years of his administration, averred that the economy of the state would be boosted.
He said that his administration had done so much with scare resources despite “insecurity and social media blackmails which are politically contrived.”
Meanwhile, the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prof. George Obiozor said that insecurity and infrastructural decay were the two major things affecting the South-East region.
He, however, appealed to the FG to address insecurity and infrastructure in the region, adding that the governor was doing well.
