1. Today we focus on Infrastructure development under PMB/PYO & review the past, the present & #NextLevelNigeria
Where we were:
Nigeria had huge infrastructure deficit. Decades of underinvestment & inadequate allocations led to underdevelopment of backbone of a modern economy-
2. In 2014, the GEJ Govt spent these sums on the following sectors: Transport (N14 billion), Agriculture & Water (N34 billion), Power, Works & Housing (N106 billion). Grossly inadequate, a lot of infrastructure projects were left abandoned and contractors unpaid. #NigeriaDecides
3. PMB committed to initiating & completing key infrastructure projects &demonstrated this through budgetary allocations & fund-raising & ensuring the plugging of leakages & cutting out waste, the government has been able to re-direct money into infrastructure & capital projects
4. This is where we are:

5. From all projects on infrastructure we can all see the determination of PMB/PYO to give Nigeria's economy a fighting chance at real growth. Road and rail network mean that the economies of the states will develop & jobs will be created. #NigeriaDecides But PMB still has more..
6. Where the FGN (PMB/PYO) are headed on infrastructure in 2019-2023 is huge and so we will put this on our next thread which is titled Next Level Infrastructure. Remember, only the election of PMB/PYO of the @OfficialAPCNg can deliver the #NextLevel Vote wisely. #NigeriaDecides
