Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, on Thursday said lambasted the opposition, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for failing to complete a single major infrastructure project while they were in office.

While speaking at the 11th Bola Tinubu Colloquium held in Abuja, Osinbajo lamented that Nigeria earned $383billion in four years, 2010 – 2014, the highest ever in the history of our country, yet no major project was completed.

He described the Lagos-Ibadan expressway project as abandoned by the PDP before the ruling APC took over.

“Lagos-Kano Railway and all that is being done today, not done then. We cannot point to a single major infrastructure project that was completed in the 10-year period, despite the high earnings, including power.

“So, a government coming after so many years of waste must be a government, first, that emphasizes fiscal prudence, a government that emphasizes integrity in public finance so that it would manage the little resources to achieve the maximum that can be achieved.

“And that is what President Muhammadu Buhari set out to do. As I keep saying, the president has never claimed to be an orator. He just gets things done,” he said.
