They included Tin-Can, Apapa ports and the Mobolaji Johnson train station, Ebutte-Meta, among others.

“I have seen all the subsequent governments in this country. There was no administration in this country that had invested in infrastructure like the Buhari’s government.

“Unfortunately, the things we have to do are not only those for the Ministry of Transportation.

“You saw when we got down at Ijora, the beginning of Ijora Causeway, we had to look at how bad the road is.
