He said that when Buhari was in power, people travelling to the East used to spend about 3 days on the road, but following the massive investment in infrastructural development by Buhari, people began to spend just about 6 hours on the road.
While speaking at the 21st Daily Trust Annual Dialogue which was organized by Trust Media Group, Garba Shehu said that he learnt very vital lessons during Buhari’s administration, and even in the current Tinubu administration, and that his advice to Nigerians is that they should lower their expectations on political leaders.
