You Cannot Claim Credit For Port Harcourt Airport, PDP Tells Buhari
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has berated President Muhammadu Buhari for trying to claim credit for the Port Harcourt Airport Terminal.
The party in a statement few hours after President Buhari commissioned the airport, said it is public knowledge that the project was conceptualized, articulated and financed by the PDP administration.
The PDP said President Buhari’s theatrical commissioning of the terminal built by the PDP administration is another failed media stunt to create a false impression that he is performing, even when he made no contribution whatsoever towards the execution of the project.
" Nigerians were thoroughly amused when President Buhari’s handlers brought him to Port Harcourt, Rivers State, for the first time since his
inauguration in 2015, only to orchestrate another failed attempt to claim credit for project executed by others.
"If anything, the Buhari administration, in its incompetence, only succeeded in delaying the completion of the project, which was perfected
by the PDP, including payments to contractors.
"It is to say the least appalling that after three and half years, a President, who is seeking reelection, cannot point to any development
project, initiated and executed by his administration in any part of our country. Instead, our dear President has been moving around trying to claim credit for projects executed by the PDP, all in a desperate attempt to cover his failures in governance.
"Only recently, President Buhari and his dysfunctional All Progressives Congress (APC), to the chagrin of Nigerians, attempted to claim credit
for the Abuja Light Rail Project, even when it was public knowledge that that project was conceptualized and policy-propelled by the PDP.
"We know that President Buhari is eager to stuff up his false performance claims ahead of election, but doing so with the achievements of others is the height of desperation and deceit, which has already become repugnant to majority of Nigerians and the international community."
