The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of laying claims to some projects conceived and set in motion by past presidents elected on its platform.

The PDP claimed that most of the projects the current administration identified as its achievements were either initiated or completed by the three successive governments of Olusegun Obasanjo, Umaru Yar’adua and Goodluck Jonathan.

The party made this allegation while reacting to Buhari’s interview on Arise Television.

The PDP, in a statement signed by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, noted that “on Infrastructure, it is ludicrous to us in the PDP that Mr. President can disingenuously seek to subtract the deliverables achieved by past PDP administrations from his so-called achievement on infrastructure.”

President Buhari inaugurated the commercial operations of the Lagos-Ibadan railway project on Thursday, June 10, 2021.

According to the main opposition party, the current administration has underperformed in numerous ways compared to the previous administrations and he failed to admit those failures.

“We want to inform President Buhari, since he is not always aware, that successive governments elected on the platform of the PDP built on these development plans leading to the expansion of major trunk roads across our country, railways and other legacy projects which, probably, his handlers are making him to believe are his.

“It is on record that President Goodluck Jonathan also took on a massive expansion of our international and domestic airports, across the country, built and commissioned railway stations,” the party said.

It said it was an affront on its legacy for Buhari to claim “credit for projects he never conceptualised, commenced or built to near completion, just because he found himself in office at the point of completion.”
