Mr Kọ́lá,the PDP Admin left behind HUNDREDS of abandoned projects, that the Buhari Administration has been painstakingly completing, one by one. Only an IRRESPONSIBLE Govt would set aside important ABANDONED projects to instead be chasing the cheap glory of ‘We started our own!’
BRF said @FMPWH inherited >200 Abandoned/uncompleted road projects:…

Min of @FMWRNigeria said they inherited 117 unfinished projects…

TCN inherited 450 containers of power equipment abandoned at the Ports:…
Mr @officialKolaO, this is the outcome of the Audit carried out by @MNDA_Ng, on Niger Delta projects started between 2009 and 2015: 60% payment but only 12% completion.

Yet you expected @MBuhari Admin to put all that aside and irresponsibly start new projects? Wehdon Sir.
These are some of the completed and commissioned projects that were inherited abandoned or unfinished Sir @officialKolaO:

This one is in the former President’s town:…………
See this, @officialKolaO:

TCN Projects completed in last 12 months. The explanation behind the increased transmission capacity @tundefashola is always talking about.
Dear @officialKolaO

2016: No water project completed in past 15 years, says minister…

2016: Central Ogbia Water Project completed…

2017: 40MW Kashimbila Hydropower Plant completed…
See this, what @tundefashola inherited from your party: “TCN projects are amongst the highest of all abandoned projects in the country... Every year, budgets were provided and projects created but in the process they do not recruit quality contractors...”…
Mr Kola, the Ikot-Ekpene-Alaoji-Ugwuaji Transmission Line was one of the first uncompleted TCN Projects that @tundefashola completed, in 2016. You should read his speech at the Commissioning:…
.@officialKolaO, Oct 2017, FG released proceeds of N100 billion Sukuk bond (part of 2017 Budget) to 25 road projects of @FMPWH across the country.

For INDEPENDENT assessment of the progress, see this by @TrackaNG

And this: #N100BillionSukukBondProject
VP @ProfOsinbajo: 2014, when oil was $100-114/bl, ACTUAL CAPITAL RELEASES for Power, Works, Housing N99bn; Transport 14bn, Agric 15bn.

2017, oil = $50-$60/bl
Actual releases:
N415bn for Power, Works & Housing, N80bn for Transport; N65bn for Agriculture; TOTALLING N560bn.
Vice President @ProfOsinbajo: “Today we earn almost 50% less than five years ago and we are investing several times more. In 2017 we spent 1.3 Trillion on capital, the largest in the history of this country, despite earning 50% less.” #TheYearofInfrastructure
Minister @tundefashola, Nov 2016:

“We inherited about 206 road projects already contracted out; with outstanding completion costs in the region of N1.5 Trillion.”… @officialKolaO
.@tundefashola: “Although the works ministry share of the 2016 appropriation was N260 Billion, which was a lot more than the 2015 budget of only N18 Billion that the last administration left, it is a drop in the ocean against the liabilities that were outstanding to contractors.”
Tweeted yesterday about the Presidential Fertilizer Initiative (PFI). This is one of the results, in Edo State. For more information see #video
One of the PFI stakeholders speaks on the economic impact of the PFI. (Interview was in October 2017)

The PFI is a @MBuhari Administration Project from start to finish. With the support of the Govt of Morocco. Details here: #video
The PFI is one of the most-impactful yet least-known initiatives of the @MBuhari administration. One of its aims was to abolish the Fertilizer subsidy schemes inherited from previous administrations. Another aim is revival of moribund Fertilizer Blending Plants like this one:
Another Presidential Fertilizer Initiative (PFI) video, from @DigiCommsNG. Testimonials from staff of West African Fertilizer Company (WAFERT) in Okpella, Edo State. Near BUA’s new cement facility.
