According to research by The PUNCH, Bola Tinubu, the newly elected president of Nigeria, has formally taken over Muhammadu Buhari’s unfinished projects worth over N16.29 trillion.
The initiatives were found using the EYEMARK national monitoring and assessment tool, which Buhari introduced in December of the previous year. According to the national monitoring and assessment system EYEMARK, 33 projects still needed to be finished.
The Lagos-Ibadan Expressway is one such project, with an estimated cost of N315 billion. The $2.8 billion (approximately N1.29 trillion) Ajaokuta-Kaduna-Kano pipeline project is a different undertaking and is reportedly 70% finished.
The Greater Abuja Water Project’s counterpart finance, which is anticipated to cost $470.76 million (or roughly N217 billion), is still outstanding.
