Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the 2019 general elections, Muhammadu Buhari, will not be initiating fresh road and rail projects if elected for a second term.

This was revealed in the APC’s manifesto titled: ‘Next Level’.

According to the document, President Buhari will rather focus on completing the ongoing works on the nation’s road and rail infrastructure to pave way for citizens to benefit from the expanded capital investments the current administration has made.

An analysis of the section on infrastructure as contained in the APC manifesto indicates that President Buhari plans to complete the second Niger bridge.

He equally intends to complete all the phased road projects in each of the state of the federation.

On rail projects, the APC and its presidential candidate are promising to complete Lagos-Ibadan-Kano line, Port-Harcourt-Maiduguri rail network running through Aba, all the Southeast capitals, Makurdi, Jos, Bauchi, and Gombe. Additionally, the coastal rail line (Lagos – Calabar) will be completed.

The manifesto further says President Buhari will treat broadband infrastructure as critical by moving coverage to 120,000km of fibre networks across Nigeria as well as prioritising access to internet in education, healthcare, business, and markets.
