It was reported that Buhari had while commissioning the Light Rail System said that the completion of the project was“ a dream come true”.

However, the PDP in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiay on Thursday, expressed dismay that Buhari commissioned the project without giving credit to the party.

It stated that it was unfortunate that the All Progressives Congress (APC), attempted to claim credit for the project, while Nigerians were already aware that it was conceptualised, initiated and policy-propelled by the PDP.

The party added that it was unfortunate that after three years in office, the APC government could not boast of any development project conceptualised and executed in any part of the country.

“The PDP usually watch with amusement whenever the President and the APC seek to claim credit for our achievements in various sectors.

“However, while we understand their predicament of having nothing in their scorecard ahead of the 2019 general elections, we state that poaching the achievements of others cannot help them in anyway,’’ he said.

The party urged Nigerians not to despair especially as the 2019 general elections offered them the firm opportunity to vote out APC and return the repositioned and rebranded PDP.



  1. “I get am before no be property”, is a popular saying. PDP, is it not shameful that for the whole of the sixteen solid years, not months, you were in power, all you could do on the Light Rail project was to “conceptualise, initiate and policy-propel”(whatever that means). PDP should also tell Nigerians, in the whole of its sixteen wasted years, how many projects they “conceptualised and executed in any part of Nigeria” before we can consider their alleged APC’s three years of “inactivity”. Clueless people!

  2. We thank God that Buhari did not abandon the project which is usually the norm in this part of the globe. Wasting national resources with abandon projects spread all. The world acclaims an achiever not the initiator.However,govt. Projects should be felt-needs as demanded by the community so that it would serve their useful purpose
