The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of laying claims to some projects conceived and set in motion by past presidents elected on its platform.
It said most of the projects of the current administration identified as achievements were either initiated or completed by the three successive governments of Olusegun Obasanjo, Umaru Yar’adua and Goodluck Jonathan.
The party made this allegation in reaction to Mr Buhari’s interview with Arise Television.
The president answered questions bordering on insurgency, banditry, corruption, unemployment, infrastructure deficiencies and other national issues.
The interview was aired on Thursday.
“On Infrastructure, it is ludicrous to us in the PDP that Mr. President can disingenuously seek to subtract the deliverables achieved by past PDP administrations from his so-called achievement on infrastructure,” the PDP noted in a statement signed by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan.
While many have acknowledged Mr Buhari’s infrastructural strides in the last six years, the PDP insisted that the current administration has underperformed in numerous ways compared to the previous administrations and he failed to admit those failures.
“We want to inform President Buhari, since he is not always aware, that successive governments elected on the platform of the PDP built on these
development plans leading to the expansion of major trunk roads across our country, railways and other legacy projects which, probably, his handlers are making him to believe are his.
