The commissioning of the new terminal of the Port Harcourt Airport is already generating heated reaction as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) blasted President Muhammadu Buhari for taking all the glory on the completion of the project.
Buhari was accused of only excelling at completing projects initiated by the previous PDP administration.
The spokesperson for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, noted in a statement to the media on Thursday which reads, “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”.
“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.
“The PDP, therefore, counsels President Buhari’s handlers to use the remaining days of his failed administration to prepare him to get ready to accept his imminent defeat in 2019, as Nigerians have already rallied behind our candidate, Atiku Abubakar, whose performance credential is known to all”.
