Osinbajo spoke in Akwa Ibom State during the inauguration of the 21-storey Dakkada Towers.“Since the inception of our administration, Mr President has prioritised the development of infrastructure, roads, rail, power and despite the severe economic downturn we have experienced in the first six years, we have invested more than any administration in infrastructure.
“As of last year, we have expended over N8.9tn on infrastructure. Just last month, the Federal Executive Council approved the Lagos-Calabar rail project, which will pass through Uyo as a major station. At the end of last year, the Federal Executive Council also approved the full business case of the Ibom Deep Seaport. headtopics.com
