The presidency has accused the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan of awarding projects on paper without allocating the money for its take off.
The senior special assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, made this known during an interview on Express Radio in Kano on Tuesday. He said a number of projects existing on paper are now being activated, citing the Kano-Katsina dual road project as an example of what he called “deceitful and ghost projects now being given life.”
In his words, “Kano-Katsina dual highway was awarded three years ago by the last administration. They didn’t pay a kobo for its start-up. President Buhari just paid money for the first tranche of 75 kilometers and work has begun apace.”
