Issues in focus for NES #18 NES #17 Recommendations on infrastructure not yet fully implemented Nigerians want new and well-maintained roads, ports, bridges, airports, railways and other forms of infrastructure Nigeria still suffers a wide and growing infrastructure gap The binding constraints are in governance, finance and capacity Unlocking these constraints requires deep reforms in the sector To unleash these reforms, critical legislations – Bills and Acts – MUST BE ENACTED OR AMENDED >>>>>>>>>>
