The federal government is to reclaim landed properties that were corruptly acquired by government officials.
President Muhammadu disclosed this on Thursday at a Town Hall meeting in Jos during a two day working visit to Plateau state.
Buhari also said his administration will soon address the growing rate of unemployment among Nigerian youth by boosting the agricultural sector.
He said Nigeria cannot overcome unemployment and hunger “if we don’t eat what we produce from our farms”.
“Everywhere I went on state visits, Kano, Nasarawa and Taraba states, I have seen teeming unemployed youth”, he said.”
The president commended the Plateau State Government for keying into the agricultural policies of the federal government, adding that the federal government will refund money spent by the state government on federal roads.
Buhari said he had directed the Federal Ministry of Finance, the Federal Ministry of Works, Power and Housing as well as other relevant agencies to expedite action towards the refund of such funds to the Plateau state government.”
Earlier in his address, the state governor, Mr. Simon Lalong, told the president that his administration is focused on security and welfare of the citizens.
Lalong also said his administration had made judicious use of the bailout funds given the state by reviving moribund industries while salaries of civil servants and pension were being paid regularly.
Lalong disclosed that his administration spent N46 billion on urban roads across the three senatorial districts of the state, some of which were commissioned by the president.
