PDP berates APC for commissioning its project after one year

29 July 2016, 16:28

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lampooned President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressive Congress (APC) for appropriating the Abuja-Kaduna Standard Gauge Rail Line Project which was conceptualized, awarded and constructed by the PDP’s administration.

The party in a statement on Wednesday by its spokesman, Dayo Adeyeye, said, the rail Project was conceptualized by the Obasanjo Administration and successive PDP administrations of President UmaruYar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan, commenced work and built the Project to 99% completion saying that the only work done by President Muhammadu Buhari on the project was yesterday’s Commissioning.

The party said the usual rhetoric of the APC had always been that the 16 years of PDP’s rule were years of waste asking if the Railway Project was also a waste?

“The truth which history will bear out is that the PDP in its 16 years of rule successfully completed numerous projects that substantively changed the infrastructural landscape of Nigeria.

“Everyone of those 16 years were years of great productivity with remarkable landmark achievements. This is very much unlike the APC which has already wasted one full year without even scratching one square meter of ground anywhere in the country”..

The PDP Spokesman noted that ‘if morning truly shows the day, then we can say that Nigeria is now really in the era of waste and stagnation.’
