ABUJA-The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has chided President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) for attempting to claim credit for the Abuja Light Rail Project, saying Nigerians are aware that it (PDP) initiated the project.
The party said 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.
In a statement signed by the party’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party accused the Buhari-led government of incompetence and lack of ideas to transform the nation’s economy.
“It is crystal clear that President Buhari cannot comprehend the design, scope and utility projection of the rail project resulting in his hollow speech at the photo-op commissioning ceremony.
“Is it not unfortunate that, after three years in office, President Buhari cannot boast of any development project conceptualized and executed by his administration in any part of the country, resulting in his numerous face-saving stunts, including commissioning projects executed by others, amongst them, a bus stop in Lagos and a borehole in Jigawa states?, the statement read in part, adding that it was unfortunate and “pathetic that not only that the Buhari administration lacks the capacity to articulate and run any precise economic policy or project, it is also so inept that it cannot leverage on those handed over to it by the PDP, resulting in the helpless situation we have found ourselves as a people.”
