While speaking during the inspection of the projects, Governor Makinde said: “We got it right by the Alternative Project Funding Approach.
The government has not paid a dime. We have issued the payment standing order, but we have not put in any money. We can see the extent of work that has been done.
“So, I think we got it right with the APFA approach. I am satisfied with the pace of work and quality so far.”
Governor Makinde also in a statement that was signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Taiwo Adisa, stated that the two projects, which are being executed through the APFA funding pattern, were progressing according to expectation, adding that the APFA funding pattern remains the best.
