The Enugu - Cameroon Highway Project Completed Under The Buhari Administration by Stephenszego2: 12:18am On Jul 29

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqgCOImu6Z4

The 433km Enugu-Cameroon Highway project was initiated in 1987 to connect Nigeria with Cameroon.
In March 2007, Cameroon and Nigeria signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) seeking funds from the AFDB and other development partners to execute the road transport corridor.

The project, which is co-funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB), the governments of Nigeria and Cameroon, Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) and the International Development Agency (IDA) is already transforming trade opportunities between the two countries.

Those children will soon be here to tell us how the road was initiated in 1987 and never a project by this administration and how the road was under construction for 33 years only to be completed by this clueless Buhari government.

They no dey shame at all. How we survive 16 years of wasteful PDP regime was a miracle. People's brain was looted along.

The 433km Enugu-Cameroon Highway is already transforming trade opportunities between the two countries, you say!

The one between Lagos and Benin Republic, I believe has brought development to the two or even more countries because of its multiplier effects.

But why do you iPoB people say the rail line connecting Nigeria to Niger Republic is a waste of resources by Fulani Buhari to connect his Fulani brothers in Niger Republic?

Buhari is working very hard, sadly his nepotism has become the trademark and not his amazing efforts on transportation like Rail and Roads in the North and West as well as Niger Bridge.

Buhari is no doubt the best performing president so far in terms of infrastructure.
Unfortunately, we will mostly remember him for his nepotism and lack of political will to deal with Herdsmen terrorists

You spot-on!

He is not perfect, got his flaws, but one of the best we had in last 2 decades.

If Nigeria moved at this pace in last 2 decades, it can never be this worst.

PDP 16 years was shambles and a draw back to this great Nation. A party that could not even complete its own National secretariat


God bless President Mohammadu Buhari (GCFR)

I honestly laugh at Nigerian youths when they suggest PDP taking over the affairs of this country.
Nigerians are so forgetful!
Just like you said, if only PDP wasn't so wasteful throughout their 16 years of ruling this country, Nigeria wouldn't be where it is today.
Go check on my previous posts, I am neither Hausa nor a politician. I am just somebody trying to tell you the truth.
My issues with Buhari are simply his Nepotism and lack of respect for rule of law.
He has done a good job in terms of infrastructure development and the economy.
Before you point to high cost of goods, pls understand that price of items are driven by foreign exchange rate since we are an import dependent nation.
Striking a balance of payment i.e. export vs imports to stabilize exchange rate takes at least 10 to 15 years considering the fact that we will be starting from ground zero.
It is not a day's job to industrialize a nation.
If only PDP made efforts to industrialize the nation throughout their 16 years, the impact on the economy wouldn't be this bad.
Oil remains our only source of foreign exchange. Unfortunately, we sell that oil as crude and still buy back with same foreign exchange with already high demand for finished products, raw materials, school fees, bureau de change, debts servicing, etc.

Don't mind politicians who criticize everything just to score political point.
The Lagos - Benin road is another busy international route and it makes economic sense for a rail project.
However, it should be a joint project between the two nations with support from institutions like the African Development Bank.
By the way, I am a Yoruba boy like Sowore who simply speak up against injustice regardless of who is involved.

You predicted perfectly.
Some already said it's not Buhari's project.
Do you expect only Nigeria to fund an international project of this size?

To be sincerely honest in my humble opinion without being sentimental and of course, without offending anyone who thinks differently from my opinion but rather looking into this serious matter with perspective distinction and without condemning anyone's point of view, I honestly think and believe that I have nothing to say, thank you very much.

[i] The African Development Bank (AfDB) says the $430 million highway project linking Enugu to Bamenda in Cameroon will be completed this year.

The bank, in a statement issued on Monday, said that it was part of its investments in West Africa which currently stood at 16 billion dollars.

The statement quoted the President of AfDB, Akinwunmi Adesina, as disclosing this in a speech at the 59th Ordinary Session of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government in Ghana.
According to Mr Adesina, the $430 million highway project will transform trade opportunities between the two countries.

He also disclosed that the bank was working assiduously with the ECOWAS Commission to finalise feasibility studies for the Abidjan-Lagos corridor by the end of 2021.

“We expect construction for the corridor to commence within 24 months,’’ Mr Adesina said.

Exactly. Nigeria is worse today.


We never had it this bad since Buhari's first time as a president in 83. Anybody that tells you otherwise is lying.

I honestly laugh at you chief, no offense. Because you're an adult and educated yet you've been made to believe that the problem is PDP as a party and not the members that are a Majority in a APC today.

Let me quote ex Governor Chime of Enugu state
Clearing 16 years of PDP nonsense not easy for APC — Chime

The ex governor made this statement after joining APC and you people agreed and cheered him, forgetting that he was a two term governor in PDP.

Jonathan wasn't voted out because of lack of infrastructure or unbearable cost of living. It was mostly because of insecurity and corruption, which are worse today.
Cost of living is worse today.

Be honest with yourself, have we had it this bad since you became an adult?

I don't give a rat ass about PDP or APC because they're one as far as I am concerned but anybody who thinks this present administration is better than the past government is mad.

You made some valid points in your post, unfortunately, the anger you feel for the political class has clouded your judgement.
My post is not to paint APC as a better party but to highlight reasons why the state of the nation is this bad.
Nigeria as a nation is unfortunate to have been under military regime for so long but notably from 1983 to 1999.
My point is PDP as a party (you can choose to blame the presidents one after the other) missed a great opportunity to start steering the country in the right direction but they took it as a competition of who can embezzle the most.
A stage 4 cancer definitely needs more time and is a lot more difficult to treat.
Have you ever taken a moment to think of why 'you are having it this bad'?
That's is my whole point and for missing a great opportunity as that, they don't deserve to ever smell the corridor of power in Nigeria again.
I am not contesting the fact that some of them are crossing to APC, neither did I mention that APC is a better party. My point was on Buhari's performance, it is unfair, totally unfair to hold Buhari alone responsible for the mess we are in this nation today.
Go back to my post, I also criticized him on security.

That's my point.

If you don't want them in power as PDP but they're in power(many of them) as APC then you're making it a party thing.
