“COVID has reduced us to the same level as developed countries. We are lucky we went back to the land. We eat what we produce.

“We are doing our best to secure the country and provide infrastructure for investment to be viable in the country,” he said.

Buhari also defended borrowing by his administration, saying he borrows in the interest of the country to address the infrastructure deficit, fix roads, rail and attract investments.

“We have so many challenges with infrastructure. We just have to take loans to do roads, rail, and power, so that investors will find us attractive and come . to put their money,’’ the President said.

He regretted that the failure to provide the infrastructure for effective transportation deprived the country of its well-deserved status as the West African hub for Air cargo transportation and trans-shipment of goods.
