The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has warned President Muhammadu Buhari not to claim credit for the construction of the new terminal at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.
In a statement on Thursday by PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, the party stated that it is public knowledge that the airport project was designed, conceptualized and fully financed by its administration.
The PDP said it is appalling that President Buhari cannot point to any key development project he had initiated and executed since his inauguration in 2015, despite the huge resources at his disposal.
It claimed further that the current administration made no contribution towards the funding and execution of the airport project. The opposition party, therefore, pleaded with Nigerians to support its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the coming general elections.
According to it, Atiku is on a mission to rescue the nation and return her to the path of good governance, development, national cohesion, and economic prosperity.
The party’s reaction comes few hours after President Buhari inaugurated a new terminal at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport in Abuja. The newly constructed terminal was a project spearheaded by the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria.
