The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, on Friday, denied saying that Nigeria’s achievements in infrastructure surpassed that of the United States.
The Punch had reported that the minister, in Kano State on Thursday, said, “I can assure you that the current President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration has achieved what even the US government is aspiring to accomplish in terms of infrastructure.”
However, Fashola, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Communications, Hakeem Bello, on Friday, said he was misquoted.
The statement was titled, ‘Infrastructure Delivery: Fashola clarifies misrepresentation of his statement on Nigeria, US’.(Punch)
