Tinubu's idea for an infrastructure revolution depends heavily on the Ministry of Steel Development – UmahiThe Ministers of Works and Steel Development, David Umahi and Shuaib Audu, have mutually agreed to collaborate in leveraging the opportunities presented by the Ajaokuta Steel Plant for the advancement of road infrastructure development in Nigeria. This collaboration aligns with President Tinubu's Renewed Hope Agenda.

Their inter-ministerial meeting, held at the Federal Ministry of Works Headquarters in Abuja, emphasized the necessity of coordination, cooperation, coherence, and complementarity in executing the Federal Government's plans for national development.

Minister Audu reiterated the commitment to implementing the Renewed Hope Agenda, particularly in restarting steel production at Ajaokuta Steel Plant, aligning with the extensive road development plans.

The Ministers anticipate that this initiative will boost the nation's economy, generate revenue, and create a substantial number of direct and indirect jobs, contributing to Nigeria's overall development.
