- The PDP says it is reminding Nigerians that the Abuja light rail project was started by the government of Goodluck Jonathan
- The party says it expected that the glory should go the Jonathan government
- It accuses the current government of claiming projects by its predecessor
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the Abuja light rail project which was commissioned on Thursday, July 12, by President Muhammadu Buhari was actually started by his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan.
The party asked the All progressives Congress (APC) not to take the glory for the project adding that the glory must be given to Jonathan and his administration.
The PDP said it was always amused each time the government 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 anyway.
“The PDP, however, urges 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,” a statement by Kola Ologbondiyan, the party’s spokesperson, said.
