Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice President of Nigeria, was in the northern state of Kano on Monday, and took time to explain a few things.

First, he reassured Nigerians that the federal government under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari will continue to implement what he described as “game-changing infrastructure projects around the country”.

The goal, he explained, was to connect the nation’s economic zones and drive economic development.
 
Second, Mr. Osinbajo promised that most of the signature projects of the administration, including the Lagos-Kano Rail, Mambilla Hydro Plant, Second Niger Bridge, amongst others would be completed during the second term of the Buhari administration. 
 
He was speaking in Kano on Monday during a one-day working visit to the State to commission some notable infrastructural projects by the Governor Abdullahi Ganduje administration, his office said in a statement to TODAY NEWS AFRICA in Washington D.C.
