Nigeria’s Vice President, YEMI OSINBAJO, has pledged the commitment of the Federal Government to developing the potentials of the private sector to deliver on infrastructure requirement in the country.

Speaking at the flag-off ceremony of the Bonny-Bodo Road project in Rivers State, Professor OSINBAJO said government alone cannot plug the shortfall in infrastructure.
OSINBAJO said the Bonny-Bodo Road project is being undertaken under Public Private Partnership arrangement between the Federal Government and the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Company, at the ratio of fifty-fifty.
He said road construction will provide direct jobs for engineers, artisans, and labourers and indirect jobs for food vendors, suppliers, transporters, quarry operators and others in the construction value chain.
Rivers State Governor, NYESOM WIKE was represented at the ceremony by the Deputy Governor; Doctor IPALIBO HARRY BANIGO welcomed the road construction as a critical national asset.
She said it comes as an answer to the yearning over the years by the people of Rivers State, as well as other Nigerians and foreign Nationals who travel to the coastal town of Bonny where the NLNG is located.
The Deputy Governor also used the opportunity to urge the NLNG to set up the necessary machinery in motion to kick off the NLNG Train 7 and also ensure that the dry dock that was taken to Badagry is brought back to Bonny to provide employment for Rivers people and help curb youth restiveness.
