Stakeholders and economists in the country on Wednesday put the current infrastructure deficit in Nigeria at about $3 trillion.
According to them, the huge infrastructure gap is affecting key sectors of the economy.
They listed critical sectors like power, roads, education, and health as part of key areas where infrastructure deficit is more rampant.
The stakeholders and economists addressed newsmen in Abuja, ahead of a national dialogue on infrastructure, expected to hold in Abuja next week.
Dr. Onuoha Nnachi, Managing Partner, DPH, who spoke on behalf of others, said stakeholders must intervene and come up with practical ways of fixing the deficit.
He said the dialogue will focus on how to raise funds through the capital market to finance the widening infrastructure deficit in the country.
