Babatunde Fashola, Minister of Works and Housing, on Thursday, said outgoing President Muhammadu Buhari administration will award projects till the last day of his tenure. President Buhari’s eight-year tenure ends on May 29, 2023. While speaking at the official flag-off of the construction and dualisation of the Akure/Ado road linking Ondo and Ekiti states, held in Akure, the Ondo State capital, Fashola lambasted those criticising Buhari for awarding contracts towards the end of his administration. He described as ‘juvenile’ talks those attacking the outgoing government for awarding roads, electricity, and hospital projects, despite a few days to go. “They forgot amongst other things that the term of this administration ends at midnight on May 28,” Mr Fashola said.
