PDP slams APC, says Buhari is claiming its achievements

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has slammed the Muhammadu Buhari led administration for attempting to claim credit for the Abuja Light Rail Project which was the project started by the opposition party when it was in power.

This is following the statement made President Buhari, while commissioning the Abuja light rail project when he said it was a “dream-come-true”.

In a statement by PDP’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan the party disclosed that the present administration in the past three years has not initiated and completed any project.

The statement reads, “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.

“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.”

PDP noted that “we usually watch with amusement whenever President Buhari and the APC seek to claim credit for our achievements in various sectors. However, while we understand their predicament of having nothing in their scorecard ahead of the 2019 general elections, we state that poaching the achievements of others cannot help them in any way.”

“It is even more 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.

”We, however, urge Nigerians not to despair especially as the 2019 general elections offer them the firm opportunity to vote out this inept administration and return a development-oriented and competent government on the platform of the repositioned and rebranded PDP,” the statement added.
