Buhari promises greater attention to Lagos at APC Mega Rally


Crowd fills the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos in anticipation for the arrival of Nigerian President at the All Progressive Congress (APC) campaign rally on February 9, 2019.

President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, at the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Mega Rally, in Lagos, promised that Lagos, as commercial capital of Nigeria, would continue to receive greater attention in terms of infrastructural renewal and all round economic growth.

Buhari pledged to recover stolen money from looters, promising to send them to prison, as all who had stolen Nigeria’s money would not go scot-free.

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, assured Buhari that Lagos residents would vote for him and all APC candidates on February 16.


Earlier at a session with members of the Organised Private Sector at Lagos House, Marina, Buhari said it was gratifying to note that the economic policies of his administration were already making the desired impact, as evidenced by steady growth in the economy in the last three years.

He said APC government had kept the promise to boost the economy through blocking leakages in government finances, increasing capital expenditure and inflows, and implementing the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP), among others.

After the rally, Buhari went to Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) to commission the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority-Lagos University Teaching Hospital (NSIA-LUTH) cancer treatment centre and 5MW LUTH independent power.

The project, a Public Private Partnerships (PPP) is a means of bridging the Infrastructural Gap in public institutions.

Ambode said the President, in the last three and a half years, fully supported the infrastructural growth in the state and would do more, if given another mandate of four years.
