Alhaji Maimala Buni, the National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Sunday said Nigeria's economy would get a boost as a result of President Muhammadu Buhari's foreign trips.

The APC`s National Secretary said this in Damaturu on Sunday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

``Nigeria is in dire need of partners with technical expertise to develop its infrastructure.

``There is a deliberate effort by the President Buhari administration to build functional infrastructure, develop agriculture, create employment and diversify the economy; so, we need support from countries with the expertise.

``The president has to be there to demonstrate his commitment to wooing investors and assuring them of the enabling environment to invest in the country, `` he said.

Buni said all the countries visited by the president have developed agriculture, power supply and vibrant economy that can assist Nigeria to develop her economy.

``If you look at China for instance, it has the capacity to support Nigeria to build a functional rail transport, road network, build refineries to improve gas and energy and develop the manufacturing sector,’’ he said.

He urged Nigerians to support the Federal Government in its quest to build functional and efficient infrastructure to impact positively on the lives of the people.

``It is noteworthy that President Buhari got favourable responses from these countries to partner with Nigeria in various sectors that will build the economy.

``This administration is committed to improving the lives of Nigerians and these foreign trips will fast track and enhance infrastructural development and the economy, `` Buni added.
