The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that after one year in office, the only project that the All Progressive Congress (APC) could commission was the one initiated and almost completed by the PDP.
In a statement Wednesday, the spokesman of the PDP Prince Dayo Adeyeye said rather than keep on dwelling on the PDP, the ruling party should concentrate on meeting the expectations of Nigerians since it has “already wasted one full year without even scratching one square meter of ground anywhere in the Country”
“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. Every one 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”. Prince Adeyeye said.
He condemned the APC government “for appropriating the Abuja – Kaduna Standard Gauge Rail Line Project which was conceptualized, awarded and constructed by the PDP’s administrations”.
He said the Rail Project which was commissioned by president Buhari on Wednesday was conceptualized by the Obasanjo Administration and successive PDP administrations of President Umaru Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan, commenced work and built the Project to 99% completion, adding that the only work done by President Muhammadu Buhari on the project was yesterday’s Commissioning.
The PDP Spokesman further noted that ‘if morning truly shows the day, then we can say that Nigeria is now really in the era of waste and stagnation”.
