El- Rufai Taunts Ben Bruce For Praising Jonathan
Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has branded Ben Murray-Bruce, a Senator representing Bayelsa East a liar.
Bruce had on Thursday asked President Muhammadu Buhari to thank ex-President Goodluck Jonathan for a train ride in Kaduna.
The President had taken the ride from Rigasa to Kakuri on the outskirts of Kaduna, to inaugurate Nigeria’s first Inland Dry Port.
Bruce said the rail system in question was “entirely” Jonathan’s achievement.
In his reaction, the governor called out the lawmaker, saying he, Bruce, was wrong in his cliam.
El-Rufai noted that former President Olusegun Obasanjo designed and raised the financing and started the “EPC of the Lagos-Kano dual track-standard gauge rail system, and the Abuja Light Rail.”
In a tweet via his Twitter handle, the governor noted that the immediate past President was not part of that government.
El-Rufai said, “Wrong Distinuguisnhed Senator! The Obasanjo administration which Jonathan was not part of, designed, raised the financing and started the EPC of the Lagos-Kano dual track-standard gauge rail system, and the Abuja Light Rail. Yar’Adua-Jonathan stalled both projects for two years!
