Phrank Shaibu an aide to Presidential hopeful, Atiku Abubakar has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari is simply reaping the benefits of PDP’s work.
According to the Special Assistant, Buhari is taking credit for projects for which PDP laid the groundwork
Shaibu said this in a statement where he claimed that a lot of the development projects for which Buhari is taking credit weren’t from him or his party at all
This was in reaction to the new terminal of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja inaugurated by Buhari
Shaibu claimed that the new terminal was developed, worked on and paid for during the Jonathan administration
“It needs to be emphasised that new terminal of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport is among the many projects conceived and started by the immediate past PDP administration of Jonathan,” he said.
“The last administration had obtained a $500 million facility from the Chinese Exim Bank, with additional funding of $100 million from Nigeria to build four international terminals in Port Harcourt, Lagos, Abuja and Kano.
“We understand that governance is a continuum and that’s why there should not be unnecessary orgasms by sympathisers of the Buhari’s administration in trying to change the narrative that the new terminal and the one earlier commissioned in Port Harcourt were achievements of the Buhari administration.”
Shaibu also challenged the President to list his actual achievements, projects which have been started and concluded during his tenure.
“Isn’t it strange that the APC is now resorting to projects conceived and executed by PDP as its achievements in office after spending almost four years in office with nothing to show for it?” he asked
