PDP accuses Buhari of not giving the party its due credit when commissioning the Abuja rail

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday commissioned the 45.24 km Phase 1 Abuja light rail mass transit project constructed by the Chinese firm CCCEC.

While commissioning the project, the President didn’t not give any credit to the PDP and instead thanked the Chinese construction company that constructed the rail.

This did not go down well the People’s democratic party who have accused the President and the APC of trying to claim credit for the project.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said: “Nigerians are aware that the project was conceptualised, initiated and policy-propelled by the PDP.

“President Buhari’s showboating and rush to commission the rail project without giving credit to the PDP, even when his administration contributed nothing to the project, underscores his desperation to claim achievements made by others in a frantic bid to cover incompetence and failure of his administration.”
