Just last week, President Muhammadu Buhariadmitted his government was slow in delivering the promised ‘change’ to Nigerians. He said development was slow because he was careful to avoid making a mistake.
It turns out that while federal governance in the rest of the country has been in ‘limbo’ because of Buhari’s ‘slowness’, Katsina State was placed on a priority list. There’s a ‘heavy FG presence’ in the state.
The Federal Government of Nigeria in the last 7 months of Buhari’s leadership – despite the lack of a budget, despite the anti-corruption war, despite all the excuses Nigerians have been given for the stand-still that Buhari has placed the country – has delivered development projects to the people of the President’s home state of Katsina.
According to The Whistle, under six months, the Katsina Airport was remodelled, the Nigerian Police Force Housing Estate and other housing projects have kicked off. According to the online paper, several development projects are on-going and some have been completed.
