Angered by the claims of President Muhammadu Buhari on the recent commissioned Abuja Light Railway project, the senator represent Bayelsa East, Ben Murray-Bruce on Thursday disclosed that Buhari’s claim of the project was ‘factually incorrect’.
This was made known to newsmen via the senators’ official facebook handle ‘Ben Murray-Bruce’. In his statement, Bruce argued that the project was initiated and came to a near completion by the previous administrations of Obasanjo, Yar’adua and Jonathan respectively.
Recall that President Buhari had said that the Abuja railway is an evidential proof that his government is delivering on its promises.
Read bellow Ben Murray-Bruce’s reaction to Buhari’s statement.
NOTICE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. The Abuja Light Railway project today commissioned by President Muhammadu Buhari is NOT an example of the present administration’s delivering on its promises, as the President claimed today. That is factually incorrect.
That is a project by the previous government. It was initiated by President Obasanjo and most of the work was completed by the Yar’adua and Jonathan regimes. Truth must be sacrosanct!
