“The society would have become used to a certain standard of service delivery at the end of the Tinubu administration that Nigerians will no more settle for anything less.”

Highlighting the Federal Government’s efforts towards infrastructural renewal, citing the Lagos-Calabar coastal road, he said: “On completion of that coastal road, the amount of tourism that will be generated along that axis is unimaginable.
