Quotes

"And that is what Arc. Mike Onolememen and his team are saying now. Moving forward, after the reform that will create the Federal Highway Authority, the PPP, beginning with the (second Niger bridge) and Lagos- (Ibadan expressway), in the next three, four, five years, I believe that the money that will go into the provision of roads will not come from the government. It will be coming from the private sector."
"The project, which had started running since June last year and will expire September 2018, is aimed at creating jobs and increasing non-oil sector growth in specific high-potential value chain sectors."
He added: "It is pertinent to note that as a distribution company, we are at the tail-end of the electricity supply chain. It is what is delivered to us that we distribute to our customers"
...by governments — particularly those that don't have their own official statistical systems — and as inputs to other models," Raftery said. "Social and health researchers dealing with international issues could use these data, too."
