The construction of ”Buhari Tower,” a signature infrastructure named after President Muhammadu Buhari, would commence in the next four weeks in the Centenary City in Abuja.
The project was conceived in 2014 to serve as a remarkable project to mark Nigeria’s 100 years of existence.
It was learned from one of the co-developers, Alhassan Baba Dantata, that the ‘Buhari Towers’ would house many residential flats which would be sold to middle-income earners.
At the formal unveiling of the City’s master plan on Wednesday, Dantata said that naming of the towers after the incumbent President had no political undertone whatsoever.
“The name ‘Buhari’ represents the poor people of Nigeria. So as a businessman and an admirer of the president, I’m only doing this as an honour to the pro-masses vision of president Buhari.”
