Owerri—PresidentMuhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, said his regime has done “extremely well” considering the limited resources available to it.
According to the Punch, the President stated this during a stakeholders’ meeting at the Imo State Government House in Owerri, the state capital, after inaugurating the Owerri-Orlu Road, phase one of the Owerri-Okigwe Road rebuilt by the administration of the state governor, Hope Uzodimma.
He said his regime was able to achieve much despite the scarce resources at his disposal.
“This administration has done extremely well. I had to say it because those who are supposed to say it are not doing so. I don’t know why,” the President said.
He extolled his regime for dislodging Boko Haram terrorists in the North East and tackling infrastructural decay which he said he inherited from the Peoples Democratic Party’s administration in 2015.
He commended Uzodimma for inviting him for the second time in a year to inaugurate projects executed by his administration.
He promised to continue to support all states irrespective of political affiliations, to deliver infrastructure assets.
According to him, the Federal Government will continue to support the government of Imo State to ensure that it continues to provide the dividends of democracy to the people.
“This support is equally available to all the states of the federation irrespective of the differences in political party affiliations,” Buhari assured.
While saluting the Imo governor for prioritising construction and institutional reforms in the past three years, the President said his regime will leave a legacy of major development projects across the country.
Commending Uzodimma for his efforts in developing the state, Buhari said, “You have written your history.”
In his address, Uzodimma said the roads Buhari inaugurated were abandoned by previous administrations for over decades.
The governor who said that his administration had constructed 105 roads in less than three years of his administration, averred that the economy of the state would in turn be boosted.
