The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said he will continue with the legacies of President Muhammadu Buhari if he is elected Nigeria’s President in 2023.
The former Lagos governor stated this at the third Ministerial Performance Review Retreat currently underway at the State House, in Abuja.
According to him, he won’t relent until terrorists are completely diminished in the country.
Tinubu promised that if elected, he will show due honour to the efforts and legacies of the President and work in the spirit of unity, national purpose that informed the creation of the party.
Tinubu said his government will be devoted to continuity, particularly of projects that will bring prosperity to the citizens, while his guiding principle will be hinged on providing the best of progressive governance and reform the nation.
He added that these three promises will be in furtherance to the nine priority areas of the Buhari administration.

He said; ”In recognition of the importance of critical infrastructure in economic development and the quest of this administration to leave a lasting legacy, we have implemented high-impact projects across the length and breadth of the country that meet the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians.
”Some of the notable achievements include the completion of 326km Itakpe-Ajaokuta-Warri rail line and railway ancillary facilities; the completion of over 156.5km Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge railway modernization project with extension to Lagos Port, Apapa.
”On road projects, this administration has constructed 408km of roads; 2,499km of SUKUK roads and maintenance of 15,961km of roads across the country.
”Key among these projects is the construction of 1.9km 2nd Niger Bridge linking Anambra and Delta States with 10.30km approach road; rehabilitation, construction and expansion of Lagos-Shagamu-Ibadan dual carriageway; the ongoing rehabilitation of Abuja-Kaduna – Zaria – Kano Road, among others,” he said.
Still on infrastructure, the President said over 941km of completed SUKUK road projects nationwide have been handed over.
This is aside from the reconstruction of 21 selected Federal Roads totalling 1,804.6km, under the Road Infrastructure Development & Refurbishment Investment Tax Credit Policy.
Buhari noted that the establishment of a National Carrier for Nigeria is at 91 per cent completion, and is expected to commence flight operations before the end of 2021.
