President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday revealed that his administration is currently struggling to put up infrastructures to ensure sustainable development in the country.

A statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina said the president made the remark when he met with the President of Islamic Development Bank (IDB), Dr Mohammed Al-Jasser at the sidelines of the Paris Peace Forum.

“We are struggling very hard on infrastructure because there can’t be sustainable development without it.

“Considering the vastness of our country, we need roads, rail, power, airports, housing, and that is what we have engaged ourselves with in the past six years. And our people are seeing the new developments. Relative to the resources available to us, we have not done badly. When infrastructure is in place, our people can look after themselves”,

He said.

The Nigerian leader also lauded the IDB for its help so far, stressing that more support is needed from them.

In his remark, Dr Al-Jasser said he had been glad to see the level of collaboration between Nigeria and the IDB since he assumed duties three months ago.

He said,

“I am impressed by your policies on infrastructure, which will give opportunities to youths, and encourage the private sector. Nigeria is a pivotal country to us, and it deserves all the help it can get.”

The IDB boss said the main role of the bank was to promote development among its stakeholders and will continue to lend a helping hand to Nigeria.
