On Wednesday, President Muhammadu Buhari addressed Queen Maxima Zorreguieta of the Netherlands that Nigeria has seen considerable changes in recent years.
The Queen, who last visited Nigeria in 2017, was assured by Buhari that there would be many differences if she returned.
He addressed at a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, which is now underway.
According to the President, Nigeria is well aware of its constraints and has made infrastructure provision a top priority.
“Development would be limited without infrastructure, so we focused on roads, rail, and power. He stated, “We have a comprehensive plan, and we are doing our best.”
Despite being an oil exporter, Buhari stated that the country was handicapped by resources and that infrastructure projects would be accelerated with additional financial resources.
Queen Zorreguieta praised Nigeria’s “extraordinary effort” in combating the coronavirus, stating, “You invested a significant portion of your GDP.”
The monarch stated that she was deeply committed to Nigeria and intended to contribute even more.
“You won’t be on your own. She informed the Nigerian leader, “We would be there with other partners.”
