BREAKING! PDP Attacks Buhari Over Port Harcourt Airport Commissioning

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have launched a scathing attack against President Muhammadu Buhari for allegedly trying to claim credit for the Port Harcourt Airport Terminal.

The party said that even when it is public knowledge that the project was conceptualized, articulated and financed by the PDP administration, the President is trying to take the glory for the project.

In a statement issued on Thursday, 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 Mr. President is performing, even when he made no contribution whatsoever towards the execution of the project.

The statement read in part: “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.

The PDP said onlyy 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 the election, but doing so with the achievements of others is the height of desperation and deceit, which has already become repugnant to the majority of Nigerians and the international community.” Kola Ologbondiyan National Publicity Secretary for the PDP stated.

The PDP advised President Buhari’s handlers to use the remaining days of his administration to prepare him to get ready to accept his imminent defeat in 2019, as Nigerians have already rallied behind their candidate, Atiku Abubakar, whose performance credential is equally known to all.
